Default My pendrive has write-protected itself!!!

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!
