Hello,I can't format my USB pen Drive, it shows the error as "The Disk is Write Protected"
I tried various methods to solve this but all are not working.Like regedit.msc,devicemgmt.msc,DOS prompt & safe mode command prompt.
There's no switch in the USB disk.

Try another computer, if you still cant, just move all files to desktop or so.. Should be the same as "Formatting" unless your doing a full/complete format which you aren't so just moving all files to desktop would be best choice and/or delete them...

Try the registry option suggested by blackbird. and ensure it is set to "0".
Don't forget to reboot after any changes.
