Write Protection removal
You can remove write protection from your usb flash drive using the below method:
a. Open start menu, in the search bar type regedit and press enter. This wil open the registry editor.
b. Navigate to the following path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies
Note:
If the registry key StorageDevicePolicies does not exist, you will need to create it manually.
c. Highlight StorageDevicePolicies, and then create a New DWORD (32-bit) Value named as WriteProtect.
d. Double click the key WriteProtect in the right window and set the value to 0 in the Value
Data Box and press OK button
e. Restart your computer and try copying files into your USB drives.

Google a program called Hp format.i had the same problem with my pen drive and even mp3
I used to see all forums for the solution and didnt find anything
This was only my idea

Just download hp format,install,and it will format and fix your pen drive

Thanks, it worked.
Thanks, it worked on a Kingston pen drive.
did it takes a long time to format it ??
Wat to do with this ?

C:\>format J: /q
Insert new disk for drive J:
and press ENTER when ready...
The type of the file system is RAW.
Please use the /FS switch to specify the file system
you wish to use on this volume.

Hi try this,
Open cmd.
start>run>cmd and format your pen drive. or win-key+R.
for ex:
pen drive (latter):j:

C:\>format J:/q Enter .

or using unix operating system to format your pen drive (FAT32 File Type).




Report me....
go to transcend site and download recover tool .
fat32 error
Transcend recovery tool works only with transcend Falsh drives
it,s not working
all above process is not working help me? any solution
