Read Only Flash Drive
If a patron tries to save to a flash drive (or delete from it) and sees a message that the drive is "read only", there is a simple solution. Look on the drive for little pictures that looks like a locked and unlocked padlock. There should be a little switch next to those pictures. Make sure that the switch is slid to the unlocked position. Some flash drives have the switch located unobtrusively in an area where it could easily be moved while plugging in or unplugging from the port.
