I have a 16GB usb flash driver which somehow decided to turn on the write-protection and now I can't even format the usb flash driver.

I have already tried theses solutions:

using disk part and the attritubutes disk clear readonly command which didn't do anything

I tried the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/Control/StorageDevicePolicies
which I had to create and then created a WriteProtect type REG_DWORD
and it also didn't work

Then I tried the Safe Mode Command Prompt but I receive the same messTage :
The disk is write protected

There is no special switch on the usb that allow to turn on/off the write protected thing.

At this point I'm even wondering if there is a solution at all.
Any help would be very helpful
