    Does the Transcend have a small slide switch on the edge that you slide to make it write protect the files?

You should try to delete the partition in the Transcend memory stick and creat a new partition. You should copy any files that you need off this memory device before you re-partition it because you will lose all the data that is stored on the device.

Go to the Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Magament.
Scroll down until you see your removeable device the 16Gb memory device, click once on this, It may not show it as Healthy.
Right click in this disk (make sure you do not select the C drive) and click on Delete Partition to remove the partition.
Right click on this unpartition drive and Create a partition.
You may not have to format this partition, it should now show this as a healthy drive.
Exit out of Disk/computer Management and Control Panel.

The USB drive should now function normally.

Format gb pendrive transcend


Plug it into your computer, open Windows explorer and then right click on the relevant drive, select "Format" and follow the instructions. If it still won't format, you need to remember that flash memory has a finite life. It is all about the number of "Writes" to the memory. and sometimes stuff fails. Bad connection or just a static shock to the chips will kill a flash drive.

HOW TO INCREASE SPEED OF DATA TRANSFERRING.


First of all, press the Caps Lock button, it really helps.
Make sure that your PC's USB port is actually a USB 2.0 (or 3.0). There are no options to increase the speed of a flash drive, it is determined by the microcontroller used in the drive.

Write protection


Get this program:
http://www.4shared.com/file/72797673/93a74bfa/UsbWriteProtect.html

You might need to get winrar from http://www.rarlab.com/
to open the rar file.

Extract all the files to a new folder, run the exe file and click the or disable Radio button and close the program.

Now remove the pen drive and plug it back in to the USB slot, Now open my computer and try to create a new folder in the pen drive, you can't. You get an error. That's what you wanted right? :-)

HTH,
