mp3 - un write protect

by prynsyn / August 4, 2007 4:08 PM PDT

i have a ministry of sound mp3 and when I plug it in, it comes up as a removable disk, and wont let me do anything with it.
I go to format it, and it says it is write protected, even though I have never done that. I went to properties, and there is no write protect box to uncheck.

Someone please help, I miss my music.
