I had a similar 'write protect' problem for my EMTEC 16Gb pen drive after it got heavily infected with virus. I tried many tricks outlined here, and nothing worked. Downloaded 'restore' utility from EMTEC website and installed it. This utility has two options - format, and restore. Format didn't work. But 'restore' worked and my pen drive is now initialized and has become usable. Hope this information may help.

Hello,

Try this 1

First go to your pen drive manufacture's website and check if there is any

format utility for your pen drive and then try formatting with it.

OR

Try formatting your pen drive using the "HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool".

Click on the below link and download the file.

Good Luck

hi all
if your pendrive files have changed into raw files then only 2 things can make u r pendrive usable
1. format the pendrive using linux window it will format the raw files also
2. you can use software easeusdata recovery for recovery of files
bt may there is no software to format the pendrive in windows

I have the same problem with my 4GB USB stick. I searched for weeks and tried everything whats out there. And I came to a very good comment from a guy who was writing in forum. he said: "guys 4GB usb sticks are like, what 5$ ?!!" and made me think, with all the time I wasted on finding solution, I could have bought maybe 6 or 10 same sticks. I think will make you think twice. :)
