Transcend v10 flash drive switched to read only!!!!!!

My flash has switched to read only mode. it won't let delete or write anything else to it. it gives the message (turn off the write protection in volume \device\harddisk5\dr25). the slider on the side of the flash is to expose the usb connector, not write protect the drive. thanks for any help you can offer....

I was searching Transcend support site and found a recovery tool that may help. Here is the link.

The support site describes it as "This program will erase all data stored on the JetFlash drive". Hope this helps.

I am having Jetflash v10 16 gb model 'Transcend' USB Flash Drive.

Dear Friend,

My Jetflash also writeprotected, there's no any solution for this in internet but I could solve this problem,

what you can do is, make your write protected drive "shared", that means go to my computer---> then rigtclick on flash drive---> click sharing & security---> check both "share this folder on network" & "allow users to change my files" ,apply setting then you'll be able to format your drive.

I could do it,
let others to know about this solution. Because I also suffered from this problem.

My Transcend JetFlash V10 16GB USB

Go to the transcend site. In the support section, click drivers/downloads. Type in your model number or search for it. Mine was a Transcend 4GB JetFlash V10 drive. So the model number was TS4GJFV10. There will be a download called Recovery Tool. Get it. Run it. That's it.
P.S: use the global download link, its faster.

It sounds like the read only switch on. According to the bottom picture at there is what looks like a switch that you can slide back and forth. Just move it to the opposite position that its in now and that should help,
