"This is a problem that needs to be addressed, and you know it"

 

Yup, and the solution to the problem is to backup your files and return the device.  There is NO fix.

 

Face the facts kid.

Re: SanDisk Cruzer Blade 16GB write protected error

  me acaba de pasar lo mismo con un cruzer pop 32gb solo lo conecto y instalo el diver y me pidio formatear  no lo hice y lo saque de modo seguro y dos dias despues lo volvi a usar y cuando lo iba a formatear no me dejo xq estaba en write protection. me comunico con sandisk y ellos mismo me dijeron que no tenia solucion q lo enviara y me devolvian otro. me pregunto que si esto al parecer es algo muy comun en los nuevos modelos xq no los recogen o inventan una solucion rapida.

I hope SanDisk solves this ... SOON as there are too many buyers all over the world with this "nonsense" useless pen.

 

I've tried everything that I have read in too many forums fully dedicated to this issue.

 

I am trying a "revolutionary" software solution and if it works I'll come back and let you all know.

 

Meanwhile I ordered another pen from another manufacturer although I continue to use SanDisk products.

EDIT:

 

I found THE solution ... a hardware one ... the HAMMER !!!

Re: SanDisk Cruzer Blade 16GB write protected error

Hi,

At this point it becomes clear that there is maybe an issue with these SanDisk USB sticks... maybe is a flawed design, maybe a defective batch, it's hard to say.

 

But, i also want to add that as Linux user i 'dislike' Windows as much as Ed... and, surprise surprise, i had 2 o 2 SanDisk that became "permanently protected" (what a bad joke dear Ed)  while using only in Linux.... not Windows fault this time (that also surprised me).

So, now i have to blame an invisible magical rainbow-puking unicorn that goes messing around with the 1% (really?) of Sandisk usb sticks ...  

 

About the warranty, i wouldn't consider to apply for it,.... because i'll be risking again to win the jackpot with another "instantly write protected" device.

 

It's a shame because (it must be said) SanDisk had some nice products, and a not so bad return policy... but i specially disliked how was handled this situation, and how impolite where some answers from the SanDisk experts. Given this, i suspect i won't be purchasing any os their products for a long time.

 

Peace to everyone, and better luck next time for those with their "permanently protected" devices XD
