Flash disk help

I am in need of some computer advise as I am not exactly the most computer literate person around. Any help would be appreciated!

I have a 128 MB (brand:M-disk) USB flash disk and I use it interchangably between Windows 2000 and MacOX. However, lately the disk drive has suddenly become write -protected and I had no idea why. I right-clicked on properties of the disk in windows but I cannot find a way to get rid of the read-only status which won't allow me to format or do anythign to it. I tried it on a mac but find all the options except read-only are gone and hence I can't changed it either. The technical site for the stupid company is still "Under costruction" so I can't find any help there. Any suggestions to what I can do so that I can use my flash disk again?
