  1. How to fix/format Sandisk Cruzer Blade that malfunctioned and is now write protected?


    Hey guys!


    So I have a 16 GB Sandisk Cruzer Blade, during use it malfunctioned and at one point it couldn't be read properly by my computer; it had a different name and it only had 64 MB of space detected when I tried to format it. Now I can open it again but my computer recognizes that it needs to be repaired. However, whenever I try to repair it or even just format it, I am prompted that it is write protected. I have tried using both the CMD as administrator and EaseUS tools to remove the write protection, both appear to be successful but I am still unable to delete files, format, or repair the flash drive. Additionally, I used a program called SecureAccess that was preinstalled into the flash drive which I assume is the reason it is now write protected. Do you guys have any idea how I can fix my flash drive or is it already a lost cause?


    Thanks in advance!

    :)

  3. Write Protection.

    Hello everyone,

    I am having a SanDisk Cruzer Blade 8 GB Pen Drive. It worked nicely for 2 years and then it suddenly shows the error message when I try to format the drive: The disk is Write Protected. I tries several ways:

    • Registry editor (StorageDevicePolicies)
    • Command Prompt
    • Different tools etc.
    I couldn't remove the write protection. Please help me on this topic.

    Regards,

    Anik.
