I try to format an USB but it doesn't work because of the write protection.
I tried to solve the problem using regedit, but I didn't have the StorageDevicePolicies folder...I created it and created the WriteProtect thing and value is at 0 but it's still not working.
I tried to solve it using cmd prompt, the "attributes disk clear readonly" command works, but when i enter "clean"
it sais 'DiskPart has encountered an error: The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error'.
The chkdsk h: /f command is also not working.
EaseUS Partition Master is also not working.
Error checking in USB properties detects nothing.
Please

Thank you
What OS is it? If you are not performing any of this with an elevated credential, it won't work!
