Hey there, CHHOTU1.

Try the pen drive with a different computer/device and try reformatting it again to see if you'll get the same error. If that doesn't help, you should give this tutorial a try: https://ccm.net/faq/33935-how-to-format-a-write-protected-usb-flash-disk
Another option would be to try out the USB flash drive manufacturer's format tool/utility, to see if reformatting the pen drive with it will fix things up.

Hope that helps. Please let me know how ti goes.

Well, some flash drives and memory cards have something like a really small switch, which enables write protection, but if that's not the case and if none of the aforementioned suggestions work for you, then I guess the flash drive might have failed. If it's still under warranty you could try to get it replaced by the reseller or manufacturer you got it from.
