USB Flash drive has read only access and trying to remove it
Hello everyone Merry Christmas... I got a read-only flash drive 60GB Fat 32 that I am trying to write too. I have tried to go into Disk Managment tool with no luck to format or anything to the drive, so I tried to DiskPart and cleared the attributes and that didn't work. Then I downloaded a freeware app to access the drive to wipe the drive or remove partition with no luck. Any suggestions.... Seems like a simple problem but has me stuck
b) If the device should be read-write but is now read-only there's nothing that can be done by a consumer. Flash devices become read-only when their read error count reaches a certain level or when sectors in the bad block replacement pool fall below minimum. This is done in the drive's firmware to protect the data when the drive starts to fail. Recover the data and, if the drive is still within warranty, return it to the manufacturer for replacement.
