I am using a HP V220W 32 GB pen drive. It shows "the device is write protected" error/message when I attempt to format it. I have tried both, command prompt as well as regedit method but the problem is still the same. I also tried downloading U-fix II/III but that is also not working.

Please help. Thanks.

in that case the drive has failed and needs to be replaced.
