That is really not helping - this is a forum, please post the answer here to the question so we can all see it rather than everyone pointlessly asking the same question to Sandisk support.
I also have a failed 128GB micro SDXC card (just suddenly stopped being able to write to it, has around 75GB on it right now and worked fine up to that point) which has personal data on it I want to wipe before returning it for a warranty replacement. My card seems to be stuck in the write protect mode described in this thread, is there an way to override it temporarily to wipe the card? I have the data I want from it so I don't need the card to protect its data.

My own 64GB micro SDXC card has failed in exactly the same way as everyone elses.
As I am unable to wipe my personal data from the card due o this widespread fault I am also not prepared to send the card with the data intact to Sandisk for replacement.
I will be emailing/chatting to Sandisk about this later today and I will report what they say later. I will suggest that I would be prepared to return the card if I can cut it into two pieces to ensure the data is destroyed. I think this would be a sensible solution.

OK, I have now spoken to Customer Services and I explained the problem to them. This is the conversation:
Clauber B.: Hello, thank you for contacting SanDisk. My name is Clauber B.. Please give me a moment while I look into your question.
Is there anything else I may assist you with, Dave?
Thank you for contacting SanDisk, and have a great day, Dave.
Good luck :-)

i think i got same issue with my Sandisk Ultra 64gb,
SDFormetter says its "Write Protected" but its not the Switch on the Adapter.
if i check the via CMD, Diskpart in Windows the Volume or Disk Details it tell me no Write protec or ReadOnly and succesful clean.
nevenmind what i do, delete or copy new data on it, after plug out and back in the Data state is resettet. Same in my Phone, can use it till i unplug the card or reboot phone, microSD card will reset to the current state.
In Linux using gparted i got an "unable to write format changes into kernal" error, that looks like the Card locked itself like said here:

You might have sent an e-maill to SanDisk Tech/Customer Support but this is a user's forum. You will get no personal reply from here.
