Re: HOW TO REMOVE WRITE PROTECTION FROM USB FLASH-DRIVE???

[ Edited ]

I have only just stumbled upon this reply. What an ill thought out and quite frankly disgusting response. Firstly i opt not to use the encryption option, as the USB is plugged in and removed multiple times per day. Second, i am a working academic, and the mere suggestion around pornography is absolutely outrageous. Finally, you must be a complete cretin to suggest such a scenario, shame on you @Ed_P you vile being.

Hi.

 

I've got write protection fault on SanDisk ExtremePro USB3.1 128GB flash drive.

 

I understand that the only way to go now it to RMA or recycle it.

 

But... the problem is that I'll need to use this and really I don't know what went wrong. Brand new drive, a few days old. Just regular use, fdisk->mkfs->dd->read. A few cycles.

 

The option into getting into endless RMA cycle is not very appealing to me. 

 

Also, what to do? (Except avoiding)

The drive wasn't designed for the type of use you are doing with it.  You should look for something simpler.
