The problem isn't with write protection. The file system has become corrupt and unreadable, or at least a section of it. If you can't reformat it then it's likely dying or dead. At least you should be able to recover some of your data however...

How to reformat a flash drive


Hi jabbbbbb6,
The Cruzer Micro is a flash storage device that connects to your computer's USB port. It comes in various sizes and fits on a keychain. If you want to erase the drive, you can perform a reformat from within Windows' Disk Management utility. After you reformat the drive, you do not need to reinstall any drivers because Windows automatically detects the device.


To Reformat, please follow the instructions:
1. Insert the Cruzer Micro to an available USB port on your computer. Right-click "Computer" and select "Manage." Click "Disk Management" under "Storage" on the left pane of the window.
2. Right-click your USB drive on the list of drives and select "Format." Select a name and file system type for your drive.
3. Click "OK" to reformat the drive. Click "Start" and "Computer" to access your drive.

Rate this accordingly.

Hope it helps.
Thank you for using Fixya.

I just purchased a StoreJet 2M 320 GB drive. I would like to format it for use with my iMac. The MAC software doesn't seem to have a solution. How do I format the drive?


When the flash memoryUSB hard drive device appears to malfunction it maybe possible to restoreit by reformatting it using a computer with Windows OS. Insert the flash or USB hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - AdministrativeTools - Computer Management - Disk Management. Then right click on Disk 1removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted itwill indicate that it is Healthy. You need to format the flash or external drive. Format thedrive as primary drive and in FAT32. (FAT32 will allow data to be exchangedbetween MACs and PCs also between XP/Vista and earlier versions of Windows).

Are you positive there isn't a flash drive stuck in a USB port somewhere else on the computer? Very peculiar for the computer to be recognizing a completely different device.

I cannot reformat my flash drive..always indicating" write protected" what shall i do to through reformat it?


Hi sampagac ,

There is right protect switch on many pen drives , a physical write protect switch which enables you to either allow writing on the disk or disallow writing on the disk.

All you need to do is toggle the right protect switch and you would be able to write files on your pen drive.
Please find an image below for more information.
Hope this helps ...:) your feedback would be appreciated.

My problem was about my usb flash drive, once I reformat it, it was appeared that cannot be formatted because of right protected..somebody told me about the sittings and configurations but it didn't work.....


It it say's that it's write protected then check with your flash drive, there must a security button on your drive, you need to unlock it if you want to formate the drive. But i am not sure that if your drive has such button with it. But some flash drive have such so that may be case. Please check.

I had also experienced this kind of problem. What I tried is reformat my USB then I used my recovery software to recover my files and I save it all. If reformatting does not success then your USB is defective try to use other pc to insure that the problem is not in USB port.
