I have a SanDisk Cruzer Glide 128g and it is telling me that it is Write Protected, I did not place any write protection on the flash drive but it is there and now I cannot write anything to the drive. My first question is, how do I remove the write protect? And secondly, why is SanDisk putting drives on the market with potential problems for us consumers? Finally, the fix or repair should come from the company (SanDisk) not from us users who are experiencing the same problem. Where is SanDisk responsibility with this issue? Thanks and have a good day.

there is no fix. If it is showing write protected the drive locked it that way to prevent any possible data loss. Back up the data and contact sandisk support for a warranty replacement. if you have sensitive data on the drive let them know. they have a return process for that as well.

Hi I did it. but it doesn't work (CHKDSK Command)
it says: Windows cannot run disk checking on this volume because it is write protected.
don't try it...wasting time

Wow. thank you so much. it works
well if you guys having problem with finding 'Storage device policy'
then go to the same path :-
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control
then simply press Ctrl+f
And type "StorageDevicePolicies" or "Storage Policies" any one that you like. it will take a little time
and eventually it will stop with highlited text without thinking hit Delete or Press right click and choose delete and then
insert the USB device, then
So if you go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
Try this ..it definitely works...I found it after lot of research online..
i m really happy that i got my pendrive back. in working condition.
