    I was using this device yesterday (8-27-08) and was saving files with no problems. All of a sudden when trying to save a file Windows gave me a "Write Protection" message and the m,essage sated that I musdt remove the write protrection for USB20FD in drive \device\Harddisk1\DR4. I've tried to format the device and if it will not complete the format. How d I either remoce the write protection or format the device? The PNY suppoer site has a low lwvwl format program, but after downloading the file and running the program it give errors. Thanks for any help.

    Sounds like it's time to get a warranty replacement.
