Re: problem with a pendrive
First try to see if there is any switch type lock in your media device or adapter
and see if its
not locking that media..it looks like slide switch .for one end it will
lock the media and when you slide it to other side you have full
access but if that's not the reason it might be the problem with registry Use the Registry Hack to Disable Writing to USB Drives
Here is the link .just download the zip folder and after opening the folder you will find a file just double click on it..

It seems that after your friend made it a bootable pendrive, he/she did not format it.The space has been used up by the installation files in the flashdrive,and these files may be hidden.This is likely to be the case with some command-line utilities for making bootable flashdrives.
To recover your space, simply format your USB pendrive.To do so on Windows XP,insert the flashdrive into your PC, go to My Computer, right-click the USB pendrive,and in the window that appears, click the tools tab and select the Format option.
That should solve your problem.
DID you tried different USB ports? IF YOU DNT NEED the inside data you can always format it. ..using any usb format tool (DriveKey), or u can even go to administartor tools, device managment, disk managment, locate your flashdrive and format, it will be back to normal state after that.
Hey I have solved the problem posted by me yesterday regarding pendrive not being accessed. It is a Transcend pendrive of 2GB capacity. I went to website www.transcendusa.com. Then I went to Tech support and selected my location(eg. India) through their user friendly menu. Then it asked for the product. I mentioned USB flash drive. Imediately it displayed an ONLINE recovery. I selected the pendrive from USB flashdrive. i.e mine is V series, V30. Then through the download link provide for different operating system viz. in my case windows XP I downloaded the onlinerecovery.exe file, plugged in my pendrive. It gives option of repair & retaing data or Repair & erase data. I went for the first one and my pendrive was repaired in 5 minutes and my data was restored intact. I got back all my files. Hope this will be very useful to Transcend pendrive users. Most of the problems are repaired by them the firm claims. Try it out and happy pendriving.
