Hi,

This is a bear of a problem with Transcend owners. You need to use their new Jet Flash format utility. So before doing so, copy everything off your drive to a folder in My Documents. This tool will then format your drive so you can start adding new, more organized data of your choice.

Then, try to remember to keep your data on the pen drive below the 4GB limit. This all has to do with binary math and base 10 math. The drive really doesn't hold 4GB of data, its way lower than that around 3.6GB. So, keep this in mind and keep this format tool around for future use.

I found this download link here, which is dynamic and not static but should work by clicking here.

Should that not work go to this referrer page here. You will have to start by select your product type and then go down through each selection list until you find your model and then the downloads for it will be listed. Click on the Jet Flash utility download eventually.

Personally, I think they could have done this much better and made this way simpler for consumers to find the formatting tool.

Let me know if you run into trouble and if you don't hear from me in 24 hours click on my user name and send me an Ask Me message, I'll get that message and I'll be glad to help you out.

Regards,
Worldvet

Save the contents in the pen drive (this process will delete all the files in ur pen drive) and then download this http://www.apacer.com/en/support/downloads/Repair_v2.9.1.8A.zip,unzip it n run.....click "Format". Make sure u have connected only the pen drive u wanna recover to computer,this tool is very blind n it doesnt allow u to choose which removable drive to format..it formats the first removable disk (seems so).

How can i remove write protect from my 4 GB transcend pen drive


Hi Virus or Trojans can run some process that keeps running in background. This not only harms the computer, but also prevents the pen drive from formatting as it shows that the drive is in use. Remove and re-insert the pen drive, don't double click on drive and cancel auto run operations if it starts automatically. Run a virus scan on pen drive, this will help fix the issue. Now format the pen drive.

Think this write protection error is due to some virus.
Steps to remove write protection for Transcend users
1) Go to download center of the transcend,here is the link
http://www.transcendusa.com/Support/DLCenter
Type the model no. or part of model number you are looking for.
example: JFV30(all alphabets in Caps )
2) Choose other details like product type etc. and search for your product
3)Then select the product which which is most similar to yours from search results
4)Then download the mFormat utility. You will asked for serial no. if you dont have..enter this no. 1456784523
5) Connect your pen drive
6) run the mformat utility and select full format after full format your write protection will be removed. try twice or thrice if you can't correct at first time.
Thats all...

It worked for me and my friends....

Other pen drive users may visit there vendors site and download any fromat utility present there for your model.
