My 16GB SanDisk Cruzer locked up (going into “write protected” mode) in the middle of a large file copy. I have XP
and the flash drive has never been hooked up to a Windows 7 system.
I’m guessing that this is some sort of hardware glitch that SanDisk doesn’t want to admit to for some reason, probably because they don’t have a fix for it and/or don’t know exactly what is causing it.
