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

thanks
