This is a bear of a problem with Transcend owners. You need to use their new Jet Flash format utility. So before doing so, copy everything off your drive to a folder in My Documents. This tool will then format your drive so you can start adding new, more organized data of your choice.
Then, try to remember to keep your data on the pen drive below the 4GB limit. This all has to do with binary math and base 10 math. The drive really doesn't hold 4GB of data, its way lower than that around 3.6GB. So, keep this in mind and keep this format tool around for future use.
I found this download link here, which is dynamic and not static but should work by clicking here.
Should that not work go to this referrer page here. You will have to start by select your product type and then go down through each selection list until you find your model and then the downloads for it will be listed. Click on the Jet Flash utility download eventually.
Personally, I think they could have done this much better and made this way simpler for consumers to find the formatting tool.
Let me know if you run into trouble and if you don't hear from me in 24 hours click on my user name and send me an Ask Me message, I'll get that message and I'll be glad to help you out.

Plug in the stick. wait for it to come up on the desktop then click on it once. (do not open it).
From the file menu select "Get Info"
In the panel that opens up you will see a row of coloured squares. Underneath is a checkbox marked "Locked"
Is it empty or ticked?
If it's ticked, untick and see what happens in disk utility. If it's not ticked that then would appear to be a problem with the stick.
For what it's worth, I did a google on this stick and found that there are numerous posts about it becoming read only on Vista, so it may well be a problem with the manufacturer.
