Standard case of the card going bad. SD cards go into a "write protected" state when they go bad. Typically this is to preserve some amount of data, so you can recover the data yourself. But this doesn't always work.

And you've tried the best tool you can, that Panasonic/SD Association format utility. If that can't format, then nothing can.

It sounds like you just bought the card, so you should be able to get it RMA'd for free and easy.
