Protection on pny 8GB usb flash drive
Here is the answer from PNY.
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.

Turn on your computer and plug in the drive after your operating system has loaded.
Open "My Computer" and search the list of drives until you find your USB drive letter.
Right-click on the name and click "Properties." Once the options have loaded, go through the tabs until you see the option to remove write protection. If this does not work, go to the next step.
Visit the company website for your USB drive. Go to the help or support section and search for "write protection."
Click on the download section and search for "write protection software remover." Download the program and install it on your computer.
Open the software program. Go to "Option" and click "Remove Write Protection" to unlock your USB drive.
