Plug the flash drive in your computer.
Then go to the Cmd Prompt, RunAs Administrator,

Then type Diskpart >
To list all the available Disks, type List Disks. You will see all the drives listed with a number ID. So the flashdrive might be Disk 3, or whatever.

Now type Select Disk # (whatever the flashdrive # is)

Now type Attributes clear readonly.

Now type Exit, to leave the diskpart applet

That should do it.

How do I format an unformatted disc?


Unless it is a read/write disc, you will not be able to reuse it. If it is read/write, you will see the letters RW on the disc. You could put it in the computer and try and format it. Make sure that you format it and not another (hard) drive or USB on your system, because you won't be able to get the information back from a formatted disc.

Good luck,

Paul

Remove write protection


This could be a Windows Registry setting that disables you from writing to your flash drive (or formatting it). If you are running Windows after Win XP SP2, you can change that setting.

To disable the write protection:
    1.From the Start menu, click "Run", type "regedit", and press <Enter> or click <OK>.
    2.Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > CurrentControlSet > Control > StorageDevicePolicies.
    3.Double click on "WriteProtect" and change the value to 0 (WriteProtect = 0 for disabled; 1 for enabled).
    4.Close the registry editor and restart Windows.
    5.After Windows starts, test writing to your USB drive.

    Important Note:
    Serious problems might occur if you modify the Windows registry incorrectly. **PLEASE** make sure that you follow these steps *exactly* and *carefully*. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it in case you have trouble so it can be restored.
    For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, follow the steps as in the KB Article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322756/

Device media is write protected


To disable writing access to USB drives and make all USB drives has only read-only access, follow these steps:
  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. write-protect-usb.jpg
Once set, all users on the computer is now blocked and prevented from copying, transferring or writing any files, documents and data to the USB disk drives, without the need to restart or reboot computer. Any attempt to download or copy files to USB drive will return the following error message:
The disk is write protected.
The media is write-protected.
Remove the write protection or use another disk.
usb-removable-disk-write-protected.jpg To revert and remove the blocked write access to USB drivers, just delete the StorageDevicePolicies registry key, or delete the WriteProtect registry entry, or change the value data for WriteProtect to 0.
For user who doesn't want to manually editing the registry, simply download the following registry registration files to enable or disable the write protection (block writing attempt) to USB removable drive. Double click the .reg file unpacked from the .zip archive to merge the registry key entries.
Download DisableWriteToUSB.reg
Download EnableWriteToUSB.reg

I can't disable write protection


Check for any tabs on the disk itself. There should be one. Slide the tab in the opposite direction.

Remove Write Protection


Try this,
1.
Check out if the USB drive has a small swich for write protection. If its there try toggling the switch.

2.
Windows can all write protect flash drives. Check out this registry path,

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies.

You may find a key here on the right side by the name 'WriteProtect'. If it's not there this would not be the cause of problem. If it's there, make sure that the value is 0.

Please let me know if this does'nt work.
