Hey nitiparth. Take a look at the first three methods from this article: https://www.wikihow.com/Disable-Write-Protection
They might prove useful. Also, I think the manufacturer has a formatting tool which you could try as well.

Hope that helps.

That's very unfortunate. And yes, they do have a formatting tool, just look it up in Google or in their website, I think it was named sd formatter tool. But if that doesn't do the trick and the USB flash drive is not recognized on any computer, perhaps it might have failed. :(

1. insert the pendrive
2. dont open or format it directly
3. right click on my computer and go to manage
4.in computer managment window click on disk managment option
5. right click on the removable disk (i,h....)
6. select format

Taken from here: https://ccm.net/forum/affich-32020-write-protected-pendrive-can-not-format

Let us know if the issue still persists!!
unable to format. i checked all methods, diskpart, regedit, all above methods
is there any tool available from sandisk for formatting or un-write protecting the sandisk flashdrive of 16 gb . ??
