namaste,
if you have transcend pen drive infected by 9u.exe which is a write protect virus then the following works like a charm:
1) download JetFlash online recovery from:
www.transcendusa.com/Support/DLCenter/Software/OnLineRecovery.exe
2) run the program
3) specify the capacity of your drive eg.512 MB, 1 GB .....etc
4) choose "repair and erase all data" OR " repair and keep existing data"
5) progress bar starts.......completes
6) notification appears ---" format complete"
7) unplug and plug your drive and .....presto

enjoy!!!!

by the way I am just a doctor by profession

I have solved my problem using the following procedure. Follow this once.
SOLUTION:
To remove write protection:
Open Start Menu >> Run, type regedit and press Enter, this will open the registry editor.
Navigate to the following path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies Double click the key WriteProtect in the right pane and set the value to 0
In the Value Data Box and press OK button
Exit Registry, restart your computer and then again re-connect your USB pen drive on your computer.
It worked to me.

Good luck
I tried but failed. Best solution is through it in to waste bin and buy another exept sandisk.
