Thanks for all the suggestions but, unfortunately none worked but in the process of going into the properties and changing the settings of the flash drive, I seem to have damaged it further. Now the flash drive is not recognised on my PC whereas previously it used to give a listing of the files on it though, beyond that it was as useless as it is now.

there,s no cure for that write protection only occurs when your usb pen drive had been attacjed by a virus and not cured early when we say write protection, it is clear that there,s no changes can be made to your pen drive... i don,t discover it yet... but someday...
