I can’t copy files from my computer to my flash drive because it says it has a write protection.

    If all else fails, format the drive. It's solved this problem for me a couple of times...

    check if the USB drive has a manual selector for write protection ...if it is there then slide it and check again.

    Does it have a little manual selector on the side of it? Check to see, if it does, if it is on the protect spot.
