    that ur pendrive is write protected and asks to remove the write
    protection. as such there is no switch for any write protection enabling or

    Having the same write protect problem on my Lenovo X300 running XP SP2, showing on ALL external drives - hard or flash - and there is no hardware switch! The problem started suddenly only on one Transcend 33GB USB stick, but now is global. Have tried sharing, formatting, formatting through DOS, running Unlocker, nothing works. This is quite a problem

Write Protection error occurs in PenDrives, when the files / file system gets corrupted.
But, I haven't find a way to solve this...
You can try CHKDSK command from dos command prompt... i may detect some corrupted files, but still unable to fix it.

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.

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.
