Hi, I just bought this usb key 2 days ago. I was able to use it. Then I put a Linux OS on it. Everything worked fine. I decided to change the OS. I formated my usb key then I used Win32 Disk Imager. During the process I got a “media error” and it stopped at 72%.
Then I tried to format my usb key and it didn’t work.
Now when I plug my Cruzer, I’m getting a message saying that I need to format it. I click on format and then it says The disk is write protected…
Then each time I try to access to it, it says that I need to format and after I think you know the pattern…
So I looked on the forums for a solution. I tried the REGEDIT stuff, I tried other USB key on my PC to look if it would not be my usb port. I tried to unistall the driver then to plug back my cruzer. I tried to restart my PC in Safe Mode and then to try a format, didn’t work too.
I finally tried a Flash Drive tester and I used the full erase option. Didn’t work too.
Also when I want to format, it see the usb key as 2.9GB only and not 16GB.
Here a screen of the usb card:
And a other screen
E: is the letter linked to my Cruzer Blade. Drivers are well installed.
And with “Check Flash 1.16.2” it doesn’t detect my USB as a Media Storage. It only detect it as a “Physical Device”
And here’s when I try to full erase it
Red means Physical Drive Error.
Does someone know how to fix that ? I also tried to remove the usbstor.inf files on C:\Windows\inf
