    Many problems in my recently bought Transcend 8GB pendrive when I connect it to any PC. The details are given below-



    1. I'm not able to copy or delete any files/folders to it (or) from it. It alerts that the disk cannot be written to because it is write protected. It's happening 70% times, not always.

    2. I'm not able to format it also. . It alerts that the disk cannot be written to because it is write protected. It's happening 70% times, not always.

    3. Sometimes I’m allowed to cut/copy/delete/format it after trying so many times. So trying and waiting for the action.

    4. I’m able to make a new folder and rename also. But not able to delete it. Very interesting that automatically a file (namely- USBC╚δ╬ä.; USBC╚3╔ä.; USBChñä.) is being created inside those folder immediately upon creation which is showing a huge size around 1.98GB to 3.36GB, but the actual size is not being occupied if I check its properties.



    I bought it in last January 2009 from an authorized computer shop in SP market (Bangalore, India) with receipt copy. So it’s under warranty period. Hence, request to solve the problem and help me out.

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.

Write - protected message when I connect my Transcend 8GB Pendriv how can i remove


Almost all the time when this occurs the problem is that the "write protect" feature of the memory device has been pushed into the on position.

Check the device and make sure this small mechanical switch/tab has not been moved into the write protect position.

If that isn't the case than it may be a formatting problem with the unit.

Transcend has formatting utility to deal with that. Go to that website at this URL: http://www.transcendusa.com/Support/DLCenter/

enter your unit model number and download the "mFormat" utility. It may ask you for the serial number of your drive. Give it. Format the drive. Several times if the first time doesn't correct the issue. Others with similar problems report it may not work the first time but does by the second or third.

Hope that helps.
