Download Boot & Nuke (google it), use the 3 pass method. Copy/burn/etc it in/on the media you want to use, i used a CD so i burned it on CD (think it was a an .ISO). However, it will not get any data back, even with saftware specifically designed for this purpose. So if you want to keep anything back it up now or if anable to acces it, gogle for best (free) recovery software.
The problem with Boot & Nuke is not that it doesn't work, if it has any it's that it works TO GOOD. Read their FAQ.

  1. Go to my computer
  2. Right Click your Drive and on the menu choose format

I have TRANSCEND JETFLASH V10 (TS8GJFV10) 8GB USB 2.0.i when try to format pen drive i got a message write protected.


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 pen drive

(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!)
