Cannot format usb disk is write protected

I have a pen drive ( Transcend) and I can do nothing with it. When I try to access it says "drive is not formated". Format it said the disk is write protected. I try using windows setup to re-patrition. Not work. Hiren's boot cd with Format tool was not responding when I apply operation to the disk. Format tools didn't work. But XP and SEVEN did say that the pen is healthy? Thank anyone that would give me the idea.

  1. Is there a password on it? I had a Sandisk that did that, it was password protected.
  2. I dunno. There seems to be no symptom of that. How can I tell and if there is how can I fix?
    Thanks for your time.
  3. To be honest, I can't remember for the life of me. It was pretty simple though, if I remember right...

    Have you tried the properties window when you select the drive?
