    Sir, i bought a Transcend JetFlash 2GB at the shop the other day.
    it worked fine, added files, deleting files.. and then moments later it gives the the msg
    "Remove the write-protection or use another disk"
    i looked all over the stick to see if there was a switch but i cant find it..
    i tried to format but it does not allow me to as it is under write protect.
    the reason for it to happen is, i think is cause i pulled it out with out doing the safety removal method but yeah.

    Please help me..

  • smslca Dec 18, 2007

    i have the same problem as given above...

    i tried to format but it says to"remove ur write protect option and then format"

    even i tried to open manually but it says to format it.



    there is no switch for a tanscend 2 gb flash drive...since ihave opened it and searched for any locks.



    if it is possible to remove frm drivers cd given by transcend ....i lost my cd

    so please anyone can provide me the software....



    thank u

  1. Run Registry Editor (regedit).
  2. Navigate to the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
  3. Create a New Key named as StorageDevicePolicies.
  4. Highlight StorageDevicePolicies, and then create a New DWORD (32-bit) Value named as WriteProtect.
  5. Double click on WriteProtect, and set its value data to 1.

I 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 JetFlash Recovery Tool.zip utility. You will asked for serial no. if you dont have..enter this no. 1456784523
5) Connect your pen drive
6) run the JetFlash Recovery Tool.zip 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.

Posted on Jun 17, 2010

Just to be an altenative solution,

-run "regedit" command
-find "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/System/Control/StorageDevicePolicies/
-Double click at "Write Protect"
-Change the value to "0"
-------------------------------------------------------------
-If you cant find "StorageDevicePoicies" under .../Control/
,create it with the name above (also create "Write Protect")

I had the same problem with an old 64MB jump drive. I did some hunting around on HWA as well as Googling other forums. The general agreement seemed to be that the drive was simply dead. I tried changing all the permissions, attrib in CMD, and even logging into Linux as "root" (the equivilent of Microsoft's "Administrator") to no avail. I was able to back the files up to another drive, and they regained their permission settings, but from what I read, the drive was simply dead.

AUTORUN.EXE & RECYCLE VIRUS


You need to do a low level format on the pen drive and the system drive. I have found by using programs like kill disk is the best way to get rid of a worm virus. A regurlar format will not work, unlike what they say to you. Kill disk will stop all running prorgrams on the drive. What it does it rights zero to the pen the drive. After that you need to do the same to your system drive. Otherwise you will be back to square one.

Problem regarding the write protection of pendrive


Some devices have a physical lock switch on the body of the drive itself. It may or may not be labeled as the lock. Switch it to the other position, and the write protection will be removed.

Write protection in pen drives


hi,
could you mention the brand of the pen drive.
anyway for deleting the files . try this--> right click the file and click properties. now check you "read only" (ie. dis-select it ) and select file or folder is ready for archive.
now try to delete it.
hope it helps. and after knowing your brand and model of your pen drive more information can be given.

regards
