    hi guys...

    im using an Apacer handy steno HN212 pen drive. Out of a sudden, it said that the files are write protected. I've tried reformatting. I also tried to manually uncheck the 'read-only' box for the individual files but it still says the disk is write protected. I don't have important files in it but I really really need to use the pen drive...I hope someone can help...
    Thanks in advance!

    thanks insomniac...

    the two repair tools u posted didn't work. but i went to apacer's site and found this 'write-protect format' utility and it worked.
    thanks again!
