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
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.
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.

Just to be an altenative solution,
-run "regedit" command
-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")

Hi, Pls post back brand/model of your pendrive. In the mean time maybe you can try the HP Drive Key Boot Utility which works for most if not all brands of flashdrives. Should you want to venture and try it, it is available for download at http://h18000.www1.hp.com/support/files/... file name is cp006049.exe Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Look for a small/tiny white switch on either the bottom or side of your pendrive and switch to the other side. there should be a tiny white switch on your pendrive...

go onto this website and download the formatting software: http://www.apacer.com/en/products/Handy_Steno_HA202_downloads.htm
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.
