    From your information it seems that you have move small switch of your pen drive and that's why you are getting such type of problem. In this case you have to move that switch to other side to fix this problem. Just look out for small switch at the side of the pen drive. When you find that switch, just move it to another side. After that your write protection will be removed.

    Can you check whether there is a lock button on the pen drive that you have, just try to locate it on the pen drive and you should disable it. Or else if there isnt that option just try to format it in windows using the inbuilt windows features by right clicking on it and chosing the option to format. That will surely remove the write protection.

    Hi harsh,

    If you are using a Windows 7 operating system then have you tried to install the JetFlash Recovery Tool v1.0.12 in compatability mode? Or else make your write protected drive "shared", that means go to my computer---> then right click on flash drive---> click sharing & security---> check both "share this folder on network" & "allow users to change my files" ,apply setting then you'll be able to format your drive.

    Can you try editing the registry directly for removing the write protection from the pen drive. Select START and RUN to open the run dialog box. Type "regedit" (without quotes) into the dialog box that appears, and press enter. Navigate to the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies. Change the value for the key "WriteProtect" to 0

    Well, the kind of error that you are getting is related to a hardware needing a driver to be installed on the pc. But since you are using a pen drive I think you simply need to connect the pen drive in some other usb port available in your pc and check if the error goes away. If still no joy then simply install the latest driver for the product by downloading it from the manufacturer's website.
