Read the forum,- pity the bit can't be flipped but there you go. Spent an hour clearing the "Local Disk" for the Win 10 Media Creation Tool. Just for anyone out there,- don't bother- it won't be picked up Hmm, upside is you can format the disk as NFTS.

And lo and behold, in the year 2017, when trying to make a Lenovo USB Recovery drive because the Acronis we have doesn't see NVMe SSDs, I pull out a 64GB Sandisk Cruzer SDCZ36-064G that we bought a while back and am graced with this nonsense.
Thanks for the thread and the laughs, no thanks for somehow being the only manufacturer still seeing the majority of these issues . This was an industry-wide decision right? Like an entire industry listened to MS's silly Windows 8 lead here? Why's the ratio seem so skewed toward one company?

The following did the trick...try it. On "Windows" open file explorer and tik "this PC". You should see your pendrive shown...right click on it....then 'properties > hardware..again tik you pendrive > properties > change settings (at bottom) > policies tik "better perfomance". Restart comp for changes to take effect! This worked for my Sandisk pendrives!!! Hope it does for you too. Ahm...do you have any idea how I could post this for ALL to see?

Rick's (Rixter above) solution did NOT work for me on an old SanDisk Cruzer Glide 8GB. This USB Drive still shows up as a Local Disk in Windows 10 and does not show up in UNetBootin to create a USB bootable version of PartedMagic. This occurs even after setting the Boot Flag property with GParted.
A different SanDisk Cruzer 16GB shows up as a USB Drive and works fine with UNetBootin.

Note: While my old SanDisk Cruzer Glide USB flash drive is listed as type "Local Disk" in Windows 10 Explorer, nevertheless Rufus was able to create a bootable drive out of it from a Parted Magic iso file. Macrium Reflect also created a bootable rescue disk from it, and I expect Windows 10 itself would create one as well. So my problem was that UNetBootin simply did not recognize a USB drive if it appeared as type "Local Disk". I submitted this as an issue (#155) to the UNetBootin GitHub repository.
