Hi there, i have tried all the command and Redegit methods but none of them are working for me. In using the command, after i have typed the Disk clear readonly, it says it's successful but it's still the same and when i type in the command Attributes disk again, still the readonly says Yes. And on the Redegit method, the write protect value is already 0 but still my flash disk says it is write protected when copying or sending files to it. So please let me know if you have any solutions. Thanks

If you are getting write protection error while accessing the drive then it means that you don't have access to that drive. Reason behind this issue can be the incompatibility issue of the drive with your system. In addition, you said that you are unable to format the drive, so i would suggest you to you to use the diskpart command to wipe the drive.
