SOURCE: pendrive is not formateing

look for a write-protect switch or tab...also check the attribute of the file, check if it is read only...you need to remove the read-only if it is set. Usually doing a full format will erase it

SOURCE: i have a 4G Verbatim flash disk. I can't format it

Hello

There is a physical switch along the edge of the card which allows the card to be protected. If the switch is set to lock or protected then nothing you do in software will matter.

Take a good look at the label it should have a marking next to the switch. Once you change the switch position it should start working normally again.

Hope this helps FixYa,

SOURCE: Hi, I have this Verbatim

Do you have verbatim's "V-Key" driver for this flash drive?

If so, there's an option in that driver for "write-protect enable" and a checkbox for that option.

If not, and it's operating as a standard USB mass storage device, then you can try this registry change:

- Start > Run > type ‘regedit’ then hit 'OK'.

- Browse to the following key:

My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies

- Double click on the string ‘WriteProtect’ and change the ‘Value Data’ box to ‘0’

- You may also need to do this for the strings in any folders called ‘ControlSet***’ e.g.

My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\StorageDevicePolicies
My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Control\StorageDevicePolicies

etc.

Hi I have a transcend jetflash d33193 4Gb flash that won't format. It tells me the flash is write protected and i don't she any physical lock. i have tried every possible thing i know on it but it...


The message which you are facing while formatting your flash drive maybe be due to below reasons.
1) It could be due to virus. Try to scan your flash drive with your anti-virus and check.
2) Second reason would be when you connecting your flash drive it may include some autorun files which starts its own when you connect your flash drive and because that file is running it wont allow to be formatted, so try to delete all the files including in your flash drive and than try formatting.
or
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.

Cannot format flash drive.... receive message `disk is write protected`


Usually there is a small switch or colored slide which flips between write protected and writable. If there is no switch it may be the software that is on the drive is preventing the format, if this is the case you may need to use a boot disk like Hiren's boot Cd to format it while not booted into Windows.
