\015\012What is Write Protected error and why it happens?
\015\012In the Write Protected error, we can't write or copy any data in our flash drives and even can't format the drive.
\015\012There are many reasons that cause this problem, let's see solutions of them.
\015\012Solutions:
\015\012• First of all try to locate a small switch (if any, that you may have not noticed) at some place on the drive or memory card reader. This is the prime reason for this error. If there is one, switch it to the other side to turn the protection off.
\015\012• Yes I know this problem is also occurring these days without this switch but not to worry. Just download this helpful software from here and run it to execute a "low-level format" on the drive. This software is quite handy and may take few attempts to actually remove the error.
\015\012• The problem can also be caused by some virus activity so just get it scanned by some updated good anti virus which may solve your problem.
\015\012• BUT if none of the methods listed above solves your problem then\015\012 your pen drive might have gone corrupted, so just get it replaced.
\015\012Hope any of the methods listed above solves your problem.
\015\012Update 1:
\015\012After the low level format, you may need to "Partition the drive". Dont worry, partitioning a pen drive means allocating it its File System and Cluster Size that was lost after the Low Level Format.
\015\012For that:
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Run diskmgmt.msc in Run.
  2. \015\012
  3. In the disk management window, select the pen drive, right click on it and click on Format.
  4. \015\012
  5. Now choose the File System and Allocation Unit Size and do not check the boxes below.
\015\012partition_the_pen_drive.jpg\015\012Click OK and the drive will be reusable after this.
\015\012Update 2 (Better Solution):
\015\012Follow the steps in this post and just put the value 0 (zero) in step 5.
\015\012This will surely solve your problem now.
