Write Protect... won't come off with normal methods... Not Group Policy, Attribs

I have checked all the regular online methods to remove write protect from a pen drive that was used to create a Microsoft W10 recovery disk and it is not a Group Policy or a Bitlocker or an Attribute that is preventing a Format, Write or any mods to the drive. Two pen drives have been now locked up. Both the 32Gb pen drives were error checked before starting the operation.
What other methods can be used to clear the onboard rom?
Is there a firmware re-writer for these drives?
