Write protect Pen Drive

Does anybody know how to write protect a pen drive, so that I can place it in any other computer and not be able to write to it?

I tried diskpart in windows from cmd and set it to readonly, however when I place it in other pc's i can still write to it.  Is this even possible ???  Or does it have to be a hardware write protect...?    If so, does anybody know of a FAST 64gb pen drive with write protect switch?

By nature, usb hard drives ownership is controlled by the RSM.  This would only be achieved if the device has a physical read/write toggle on it.  Most don't anymore..

I was afraid of that, but was hoping that someone else may have known something I didn't...  Does anybody have a recommendation for a fast write protected pen drive?  I have a 64gb kangaru pen drive with a WP switch but it's slower than molasses running down a barn wall in mid december....
