If your flash drive does not have a very tiny switch on the bottom or side of the case and you get the problem on any computer you try it on, (report back here if its only write protected on the one computer) then the reason you are getting this problem is because you have a fake 4Gig flash drive which became write protected once its true capacity had been exceeded. Return the drive to the supplier if possible. There are ways to reprogram the flash drive but you will not get back the fake capacity as the drive is probably only 256MB or if you are lucky 1GB. Google fake flash drive.
