Don't you think that if anyone (including SanDisk personel) knew a solution that they would post it here?

 

In other words, there is no known solution other than returning it as defective to SanDisk and getting a replacement.

This my first Sandisk flashdrive, and it will be the last one. It has been used for only half year in my hand and now it turns to a status of "Protected FOREVER". What a joke!

Look on the bright side, you will never loose your files on it.  They are frozen in time forever.

 

And if you want a drive that is writable your's is still under warrantee.  Return it to SanDisk and they will send you a replacement. Obviously copy your files off of it before sending it in.

Re: SanDisk Cruzer Blade 16GB write protected error

i have the same problem here. cannot return drive since it contains passwords and source code owned by my employer.

is never being able to delete those a good thing? seriously i'm tempted to take this to slashdot as sandisk does not seem to be serious about this.

I also do not understand why they do not clearly state here the problem and solution, but their customer service is much better, i would say perfect. Due to sensitive data on my drive they allowed me to damage the flashddrive before return (so I did), although it is an exception to their policy. Now a new replacement is on the way to me.

I'm pretty sure if you search the forum for "return it to SanDisk" you will find it stated numerous times.

 

But to state it clearly for you,

 

If you have a probelm with your SanDisk device and it is under warrantee return it to SanDisk.  Contact SanDisk Customer Service for details.

Better?

Re: SanDisk Cruzer Blade 16GB write protected error

Here are some instruction :

-Run Registry Editor (regedit).
-Navigate to the following registry key: -HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
-Create a New Key named as StorageDevicePolicies.
-Highlight StorageDevicePolicies, and then create a New DWORD (32-bit) Value named as WriteProtect.
-Double click on WriteProtect, and set its value data to 1.
DONE :smileyhappy:
