I never used bitlocker but maybe turn it back on and off again:BitLocker Drive Encryption - BitLocker To Go - Turn On or Off - Windows 7 Forums

Others had been able to use a repair app http://www.apacer.com/en/support/downloads/Repair_v2.9.1.1.zip I haven't used it but it helped others: How do I remove write protection from a USB memory stick? - Windows-XP-General-Discussion - Windows-XP

I downloaded it just to scan it for viruses and it's clean.

i read all those threads and also downloaded that app nothing worked :((

the app keeps telling me that usb device not found
