    Some clarifications are needed. Is it new one? Is it under warranty? Is this problem occurred before? Have you updated the system with latest one? What OS are you using now?

    In general, write protection occurs due to virus issue. First of all you have to check this flash drive by a good anti virus cleaner (like MWAV) & make sure this could not happened for this reason.

    Also you can this one by inserting another system or computer of any.
