I can't open pen drive and it shows access is denied,


It happened because your "pendrive" contains one kind of trojan horse. Please scan by some good antivirus.

Hii i have JF V30 / 8GB Transcend pendrive.


Try finding a little switch on the pendrive, it'll be pretty tiny. This switch determines if the drive is read only or writeable. If not you can try disassembling it to find the switch. Check your manual if it says anything about a read/write switch.

Pen drive write protected


I have had the same prob and able to remove the write protected message by just unlocking the hold button. If this doesn't work there is formating software for each USB on the web. One can google and download it for free inorder to formate the USB

Your pendrive is infected with Autorun.inf virus
to remove this virus install malwarebytes (It is antimalware software)and scan your whole computer as well as your pendrive when you scaning finish remove all threats

IF the above method is not work

Try to format in other operating system like windows vista or in windows 7 because in vista and 7 you can force format your pendrive

You need to change your pendrive as there is a manufacturing defect which generally arises after some time of using pendrive
