Pen Drive Write Protection Problems!

I found a simple solution to enable your Pen Drive or USB Drive from write protection. I have been asked from a lot of friend about to release the lock. I search everywhere but found out that their solution didn't work. From the suggestion to use 'chkdsk f: /F' to using the safe mode and also use the Storage Administration. But all that cannot resolve the problems.... when you try to format or adjust it... the error message " Write Protection" keep appear. My first advive before u proceed with my solution... to copy over and backup the whole data first... Then.. Download a program.. this programs I only give to who require it... so leave your comment here and I'll show you how to do it....

I have the same problem, can you send the program please ?

JoaoVicente said...

My pen drive is Transend.

I got a tool at Transend web site that unlocked the drive and delete te partition, so I was able to reformat the pen drive. This tool is supposed to solve the problem without reformating, but I got an error.

Since the pendrive was already unlocked I finnished the job!!

Hope this helps...
