May be there is no solution.

And the only thing they do is sell those defected disks!

Re: 32GB Sandisk Cruzer Write Protected error

I was in the middle of copying some files to my 32GB cruzer drive, when suddenly the transfer was

interrupted and I got a "Disk is write protected.  Remove the write protection or use another disk." error.

 

I removed the drive, rebooted, but the write protection is still stuck on.  I can read files from the disk,

but can't add any additional files or delete files from the disk.

 

This appears to be a common problem with this drive from reading the forum - are there any

known solutions to this other than sending the drive in for exchange?

 

I am running Windows 7 64bit
