Be warned, this is a low level format tool from them. What ever is on your flash drive will be erased.

I went exploring on these drives and found that when they start acting like they are write protected, it means that the drive corrupted. The low level format tool, will completely reformat that drive, and hopefully correct the problem.

They say it happens (usually) if you removed the drive from a computer, without using the safe eject USB function.

If this is a new flash drive, take it back to where you got it, and ask for a replacement.

    Dear sir, I cannot format my 8Gb USB removable disc...while the formating its says that ur disc is protected...how can format then?


    LLFTOOL is a utility for low-level disk drive formatting,
    also supports formatting of FLASH cards using a card-reader.


    1. Download this tool:
    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/LLFTOOL.EXE

    2. Format

    (WARNING: After running this low level format tool,
    the whole USB flash disk surface will be fully erased.
    Therefore, data restoration will be impossible after using this utility!)

    I have a PNY 8GB Flash memory.I will like to know


    Go to my computer and open it, and you should see the Flash Drive. Right click on it, and from the dropdown menu select format.. (It will be FAT 32)

    As I am not familiar with your exact make of drive, check that IF it has a tiny slide protect switch on the side. If it has, try formatting it, if it won't, push the switch forward or back and it shouild then format.

    As you do not give details of your computer, I cannot give further instruction for a your O/s.
    If it's XP the drive should be recognised automatically, but if its Win98, it will need you to install the driver you got with it on the CD supplied.
