Can,t format the pen drive

Indeed. I used to think that the write-protect tab operated a switch inside the card. Not true - the tab is a purely mechanical flipper, with no electric connection inside the card. Instead, it toggles (or fails to toggle) an electro-mechanical switch in the SD card reader. Oh my, even the venerable floppy drives used to have an optical sensor for the write-protect tab, and I don't remember ever meeting a flawed write-protect sensor in a floppy drive... Whereas with the ultra-modern SD media, it seems to be a popular flaw :-/

Taping over the write-protect tab on the SD card may indeed help, if the mechanical switch inside the reader is flawed in exactly the right way. In my case, it was flawed worse.

On my Fujitsu Siemens notebook, otherwise an excellent reliable machine, I managed to find out that the metallic finger in the slot is free-floating when the slot is empty, but gets grounded if the finger is pressed.
Next, I was lucky several times. Without voiding any warranty sticker, I managed to find the right hood on the bottom of the notebook, which revealed access to the CPU, RAM and basically the whole motherboard, including the SMT pins of the SD reader socket. I quickly found the sensor pin, it was the left-most pin on the socket. And indeed, if I inserted an actual card, the sensor kept trying to close, but remained open most of the time.

Then I finally I got the idea that I could just short the pin to ground "out of band". Put a very sharp tip on my soldering iron, got about 1 cm of hairline wire (a single strand from a piece of left-over stranded wire), and did the micro-surgery. I merely needed to cross a narrow gap between the sensor trace and a nearby ground plane, and I zapped my piece of wire to the right pins of two suitable SMT devices, which provided uncovered tin, easy to solder.

Guess what, the SD card isn't write protected anymore, even if I toggle the tab on the card to the "locked" position. Who cares about the write-protection anyway :-)

Thanks a lot, everyone, for posting your comments about the tape-over trick, and especially about the "sensor finger". That got me started. Your information has saved me from several days without my notebook, and possibly from a replacement of my known-good rock-solid motherboard (if it ain't broke, don't fix it).

How to remove write protect on my usb flash drive

There should be a very small slide switch along the edge of the card. Sliding this one way will lock (write protect) or unlock the card.
