    My usb drive is write protected i cant format it pls help....


    Have you tried doing it from another PC? If the same problem persists, look closely at your drive and check for a tiny switch that has a lock label on it- it maybe switched to the lock position. Most USB drives has this switch for write protection.

    USB


    Write Protected USBs are protected by some software that provide passwords to get access to it. So that you wont be able to write anything on that drive.

    Else,

    or sometimes it is protected by the operating system itself that provides the USB Drive to writeprotect. that have some executable files in the pen drive.
