Hello,
How can I format my 8 GB Transcend flash disk that is write protected?

I just went through this same problem with my Kingston USB flash drive. I didn’t know why. After inserting it to my laptop, I received the “not formatted error” message. As I tried to format it after struggling for a long time, the windows popped out that “It is write protected…” What a ridiculous thing!
So, I tried every possible way to get back my inner data and save this flash drive.
Firstly, remove the write protection:

Secondly, recover the inner data at the aid of a USB drive recovery freeware:

Thirdly, format hid drive:
My computer=> right click your drive=> Format => Quick Format
It is just like a nightmare. But, fortunately, all of my data are recovered and the flash drive also returns to its normal use.
I hope my experience could help you.
