write protect

By najafian ·
have a flash drive that all of a sudden developed this problem. Every time I connect it to my Win XP Service Pack II machine, I get a message that the flash disk is write-protected and that I should remove the write-protection or use another disk. The only problem is that I've tried removing the write-protection using several means but all in vain.I tried using the command prompt,I've tried using disk management to format the drive but that doesn't help-the message persists. I even used a low level formating tool but the format could not complete-all I saw was an "read error" message. Before i gave up i used windows 2000 and 98SE to format but still no success!
What should I do to solve the problem after using the only means I thought would work but all without success?
