Thank you
You must remove the write protection. Here is how:

It's not done. When I format this from Windows 8 it shows it is read only . When I format it from hpusbdisk ... it shows it is write protected

Hello,
# Download USB Fix on your computer, and launch it.
# It will start automatically, and a shortcut will be created on your desktop.
# Connect all your external data sources to your PC (Usb keys, external drives, etc...) Do not open them.
# Choose " Deletion " option.

#The computer will re-start, and it may be longer than usually.

# UsbFix will display a message at re-start.

# Click "OK" to start cleaning.
# Copy/paste the report here.
