Use any linux bootable distro, like puppy (100 MB ) Slax ( 200 MB) or ubuntu to make a live boot, or use any pc which has linux installed can format your USB to its full capacity.

SOURCE: 64GB Kingston DataTraveler won't format

Try using someone else's computer to format it. If that doesn't work .... then it sounds like the drive itself has sustained physical damage. I would contact whoever sold it to you and ask them for a Return Merchandise Authorization (if you bought it recently) because it is probably dead.

SOURCE: how do i remove write

click start control panel administrive tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties then security select take full control in windows 7


USB drives can be write-protected by modifying the StoreageDevicePolicies Registry key and WriteProtect Registry value.
click Start>run>regedit to open Registry Editor. and press control+F to open the find dialogue box and type "usb device" or "driverdesc" to open usb mass storage device or type "usb mass storage device" in the search windows. And right click on it and delete. This will set the policy value to 0. then insert your usb device. It will work fine.
# Remember: do not delete any unknow files in the registry as this will make some programes not work as usual.

also
If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:

- click start right click on my computer select open
- Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something)
- Click Properties in the menu that comes up
- Click the Sharing tab
- Click permissions
- And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.



hope this helps

How to remove write protection from kingston usb drive


From the Kingston website:
DT101G2 - DataTraveler 101 G2 FAQ

Is there any security or write protection feature available for this DataTraveler? Unfortunately this unit does not have any security or write protection feature. If you receive a write protection message with this drive, check for the following:

  1. Verify that you are allowed to write to removable storage devices. There may be a security setting in the OS that disables write access to removable storage devices.
  2. Make sure you have not enabled write protection on the drive by using a third party software.
  3. If none of the above apply, the drive may be defective. Contact Kingston Technical Support for further assistance.

Formating process of 2GB write-protected usb


Okay if you right click on the drive and open properties, you should see a check box that says Read Only. Make sure that that is unchecked. If it is already unchecked tell me and I will continue troubleshooting. Then attempt to format the drive again.

Flash Disk problem


Hi asad_wouria,

Try it on another computer or try to format it. If it continues to give that message then you need to get it replaced at the reseller or with Kingston.
