Hello,

Try this 1

1) Click on the below link and follow the instructions

https://ccm.net/faq/4214-how-to-disable-write-protection-on-a-usb-key

2) First check if there is any format utility available in your pen drive manufacture's

website. Try formatting with that utility.

3) If the problem still exists then click on the below hyperlink "HDDLLF" and

download it.

HDDLLF

Connect your pen drive --> Open the downloaded application --> Click on

"Continue for free" --> Select your pen drive from the list --> Click on "Continue".

After completion of the process try formatting your pen drive from the Windows.

Good Luck
