USB Flash drive has read only access and trying to remove it

Last Modified: 2020-01-15
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
