    you can format the pen drive from command prompt
    open cmd as administrator
    and write the command as follows w/o the quotes:

    "format Your-drive" and press enter
    E.g.: format G: and press enter where G: is my drive letter for pen drive

    If above command fails then use "/Q" and "/X" with space before the drive letter.
  2. Depends on the drive. If your drive is read only then check to see if the drive has a microswitch to enable the write line to the drives electronics.
  3. This is only for Transcend pen drives,

    1. Just download the 'JetFlash General Product Series' from the following link:
    http://www.transcend-info.com/Support/Software-3/

    2. Now insert your pen drive and open the downloaded .exe file

    3. Then click the format button to format and wait for some moment.
