i have kingston DataTraveler™ 2gb
i was using it..it was working fine..but now,


when i tried to delete a file = the disk is write-protected
i google-ed every thread/post and found/tried these things


tried to format (quick / FAT32) = the disk is write-protected
tried to format (quick / FAT) = the disk is write-protected
tried to format (not quick / FAT32) = the disk is write-protected
tried to format (not quick / FAT) = the disk is write-protected
tried to format via DOS = the disk is write-protected
tried tools (i.e onBeley,other low format tools) = the disk is write-protected
tried the regedit fix WriteProtect DWORD value 0 = didnt worked
tried Microsoft© scanDisk™ = the disk is write-protected
tried Microsoft Defrag Tool = the disk is write-protected
tried everything on many computers with xp and vista = the disk is write-protected
tried to reinstall with drivers of win 98 = doesnt work
reinstalled windows,on the 1st boot,i tried all of this = didnt worked
tried all of these things with restarts and re-connecting usb = didnt worked
i can access/copy/Read data but i cannot "Write" anything on it


There is "NO WRITE PROTECTION SWITCH"
some things i found suspecious

1.in the device manager it shows "Generic USB2.0 Device" , others show USB FLASH DRIVE..etc

2.from a software "onBeley" it shows the "frimware = %z!Y" and "Low-level support = No"
filesystem = FAT32


i know that it is a small cheap 256MB disk..useless..but i want a solution to this problem..because many ppl have the same problem even with up to 8 GB,different manufactures
usb drives and memory cards,HAVING NO WRITE-PROTECT SWITCH
