new usb stick

:womanembarrassed: Hi all i’ve just bought a 8GB  Verbatim pinstripe usb drive now my problem I am scared it goes into write protect mode do I need to formatt it before use or just copy and paste my films :womansurprised:

I suggest formatting it after you copy and paste your films. :smileyvery-happy:

Have you written to Verbatim and asked them what to do?

Er, pehaps you should be asking on the Verbatim website about a Verbatim product, rather than asking about it on the (competitor) SanDisk website? :wink:

Check the toggle switch too. Sometimes, it’s set to read mode.
