    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.

Have TRANSCEND D33193 4GB pendrive when i plugged it in my PC it is not detected , some one please help me.........


all pen drives are like jokers of a pack of cards....they behave very funny when you need them....
one of the most stupid inventions of the computer world....are these pen drives....
they are very much likely to carry virus from PC to PC....unlike the CD / DVD that cant be written without using a write program.....like Nero etc....CD/DVD disk are write protected by default....but the USB sticks can be used by drag and drop files.....so the virus get in without the user doing anything....
also when you thingk that you are buying a 4 GB pen drive, some times the dulicate are not exactly 4 GB...they are just 1 GB...and show 4GB as capacity...after using for some time they show their real face(1GB) and the drive becomes useless....
To tell you the fac many mfg are packing more and more space into a pen drive...like 32 GB, etc...but actually the physical capacilty is only 2 GB but expanded to 8 Gb / 12 / 16 GB using a compress program....after few uses....that becomes usless.....

You should be able to use partitioning software on the drive Just as you would on a failed HDD.
Do a Google search for Free Partitioning software, there are many avail out there.

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.

Transcend 8 GB Pendrive showing write protected


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.
