Hello folks,
I have a weird problem in my pen drive, there is a 900 MB folder in it which contains MP3 files, when I try to delete this folder or when I try to format the disk it says “disk is write-protected” and gives 3 options Try again, Skip and cancel. And when I go inside the folder and right-click on the MP3 files there is no delete option at-all. Tried to format or delete in windows Xp, Windows 7 and also ubuntu but no success. Even tried unlocker software but still it doesn't help :evil:

Is there any other option which I can try???

it says USB Flash disk not found!!!


Delete the partition by computer management and then reformat.

delete option is missing in Disk Management

formatting through command prompt may also help.. bt still nt sure in ur case..

nope doesn't work in command prompt too, it says The volume is write protected


tried that software, it completes the process but after that i cant format the disk, the data is there like how it was...

ANYTHING ELSE GUYS???

Try to format the drive in Safe mode.

In case you dont know how, keep pressing F8 when computer start, and wait for a menu. Then select the option, "Safe mode". After arriving to the desktop, try to format without opening the drive (preferably through command prompt).

If unsuccessful post the exact error message and/or screenshot.

I get this error message "The Disk can not be written because it is write protected. Please remove the write protection from the volume in drive \Device|Harddisk1\DR5."
