The other night I was putting something on my 8gb sandisk flash drive. My pc shut off randomly and I go to recopy the files onto my flash drive and the drive keeps saying the disk is write protected. I cant format the drive because it says the disk is write protected. I've tried going into regedit and making the write protect reg key. Didn't work. The flash drive does not have a little switch to make it protected.
I get the message to format my pendrive as soon as i plug it. It could not be formatted. What is happening with this. I tried many options like setting StorageDevicePolices, low level format but could not get out of this problem.

A software company send me a program on a usb flash drive - Toshiba 16GB. I just received another one as they upgraded my program. I went to format the little toy and it tells me that it is WRITE PROTECTED.I tried to go in regedit to see if the value for write protect is set 0 or 1 - needs to be 0.I tried couple of freewares but failed.
I have been using a 4GB Toshiba USB flash drive on my computer & also on USB ports stereos. All of a sudden the drive has started appearing write protected and I cannot add or delete any files on the drive. This is very surprising as I havent found any answer as to how can I remove the write protect thing and use my drive normally. The other thing is that the drive has no write protection switch to control it.
I used alchol 120% to burn a dvd rw and then after some time wanted to burn something else on it. but while formatting there is an error message saying " disk is write protected".With windows 7 ultimate i was able to rightclick and format the disk again i burn the same disk with my laptop having windows 7 home premium. IT IS AGAIN GIVING THE SAME ERROR.i have tried other softwares to erase or format that disk but it failed.
