can my usb drive be saved?

Hi everybody

I have a small problem with my 128 MB usb stick. I shall say before anything else that i may sometimes treated badly this stick (dropping hitting etc). So what is happening that last time i was using my stick it gat jammed (i geuss that it had some problems with some bad sectors). So as it seemed to be hooked i just desconnected it. It seems that it was a bad move as since the stick is write protected. That would not be a problem if it had lock unlock switch, but it does not have this.
Thus my question is how to unlock this drive
How to format it, checking for bad sectors
