to keep things sweet and short , my sandisk cruzer orbit 32 usb is write protected , i bought this way back so no warranties or what so ever, also the usb doesnt have any kind or any sort of switch or lock icon or what so ever, ive tried the following method and they DONT WORK for me
regedit adding writeprotection key etc. and setting the
value to zero
Uninstalling and Reinstalling the driver
the usb is no longer "write protected: as stated in cmd.exe disk part , attributes disk etc. however it is marked as YES in "currently read only" something like that can;t remember it.
im okay with formatting the usb , cause i needed the space more than its content so yeah .. any solution would do aside from destroying it ofcourse
