SanDisk are f*cking cunts.
No seriously. This is what you call built-in obsolescence.
For most of you, your drives have disabled the write access themselves, because - and that’s what this sh*tty company tells you - to protect them from data loss. It’s hardware based, you can basically not get around it. Or only with some f*ggo tool SanDisk has themselves.
My stick was working perfectly fine and the only thing I probably triggered was a GB written counter which caused the drive to shutdown. A drive just doesn’t go defect from nowhere. Also, why can I still read it perfectly and just not write to it anymore.
I call bullsh*t. So are the products of them.
If you’re lucky you just set a software partition or file system read-only flag. But for many people who participated in this thread, it’s the story I just posted. You lost here.
The only win you can get out of this situation is the experience to dump SanDisk products.
Oh, and stop censoring my badwords. If you want feedback, deal with it.
