    Are you 100% sure there's nothing saved onto it originally?

    DH says to try plugging it into the computer and empty the recycle bin on your computer....It sounds weird (I double checked that's what he means...) but he says sometimes it works.

    Apparently some flash drives have a 'lock' on them...like a physical little switch....DH just educated me by getting my SD card out of my camera (OMFG THERE'S A LITTLE SWITCH ON IT!!! :shock::happydance::rofl:) - apparently it's rare to be on a flash drive, but some do have them. They're meant to lock the device completely so you can't add/remove things etc....but something else worth checking, just incase!!

    Otherwise he says, take it back to the shop!
