Default Usb flash drive is write protected

I have an Emprex 1GB flash drive that I was trying to use with my PS3, but then I learned that it had to be FAT32 and the it was just FAT, so I went to my computer, then right-clicked, then clicked format and went to change it, but right when it was almost finished a message popped up saying that windows could not format it, and then i went back and checked "quick format" just in case, and this time a message popped up saying that it was write-protected. Now the file system is "RAW" and I can't use it at all. There is no switch anywhere on it that would let me set it to be not write protected and it was working just fine before i tried to reformat it. Is there something that I can do to fix it or is it completely useless now?

Didn't you already make a post like this? I swear I saw the same thread with replies in it.
