SOURCE: Remove Write Protection
Check out if the USB drive has a small swich for write protection. If its there try toggling the switch.
Windows can all write protect flash drives. Check out this registry path,
You may find a key here on the right side by the name 'WriteProtect'. If it's not there this would not be the cause of problem. If it's there, make sure that the value is 0.
Please let me know if this does'nt work.

hey, i was having the same problem with the same flash drive... there are two ways how you can fix it..
1. try formatting using cmd
Go to start-->run and then type cmd and press enter
now the command window will open
in that type format X: (x being your drive)
This should work fine if not try the second method
2. Go to this website and download the recovery tool software which is exclusively for transcend flash drives.. click the link below to so to that site..
Download the recovery tool software under the topic software and install it in your system.
Now connect the flash drive in your pc and run the recovery tool application.. This will format your flash drive
