comment How can I disable write protection in my USB flash drive?
Right, I successfully completed the Diskpart method, pulled out the USB drive, then reinserted it, and it seems to be unchanged.

I just tried the Diskpart method: it gave me the success message "Disk attributes cleared successfully", but unfortunately the USB drive is still write protected, and seems to be unchanged.

Unfortunately, as stated in my original question, I'm unable to format it. When I select NTFS, click Start, and click OK, it gives me the error message "The disk is write protected." Or am I doing something wrong? Thanks.

None of the data on my USB drive is needed, so it's okay if I lose it all.

Thanks for your suggestion, but there is no Security tab, there's only General, Tools, Hardware, Sharing, and Customize. Any ideas?

I can't tell if it's broken, and I don't know how to test for that. I can still access the files on the drive, so that might mean it's not broken.

Unfortunately, I don't know the first thing about linux. I'm operating in Windows 7.
