Re: SanDisk Cruzer Blade 16GB write protected error

Thanks Graham.

 

Does the formatting remove the write protection when the drive is used back in a pc?  It was noted in another recent post that the drive could be formatted in a cheap camera but it was still write protected when put back in the pc.

Works fine on my laptop now, tried everything else including registry hacks this is the only thing that worked.

How you did that? Even this software says it's write protected. I tryed this and HD Tune Pro!!

I Just bought two 16gb sanddisk flashdrives and both of them are with this problem! I bought both on Amazon.

Re: SanDisk Cruzer Blade 16GB write protected error

Hi, I am propbably 1 of the 1% who have problems with my Cruzer blade 16gb. It is also write protected on its own accord.

 

This happened maybe a month or so ago & I finally decided to look for a solution or if someone else has this problem. Well it seems I am not the only one.

 

I do believe alot of people may have this problem, but are not inclined to search the web for a solution or thinking they did something wrong.

 

The check flash solution did not work for me. It states the obvious: your drive is write protected, remove the write protection first.

 

We need some customer service & a solution to your product's fault.

 

It is no use blaming Windows. It is a Sandisk problem.

 

Please provide a solution. I am looking forward to great customer service & a speedy solution to this problem some of us experience with your product.

 

Thx

Re: SanDisk Cruzer Blade 16GB write protected error

That's not a suggestion. That's just prolonging a problem that you need to actually fix.
