I buy a lot of Extreme USB Flash drives for experimenting operating systems.
All Extreme USB 3.0 Flash drives I bought so far can install and boot Linux with Grub with no problem.
The last one I bought cannot. When I install Linux to it, I just get the message
Is this a defect? because all other USB’s I have can install, some are fixed drives (I was lucky to get a few of those).
The other problem was with a Ultra one which I complained in the past via ONLINE RMA SUBMISSION [Incident: 151102-000037]
The Ultra Drive got locked when there was a power outage while transferring files, and I couldn’t recover it, it’s write protected.
Why doesn’t Sandisk provide a tool to unlock read only drives? instead of having to go through the pain of an RMA?
