Just bought a sandisk 8gb microsd hc, but pc cannot detect


pen drives are very fragile HWs and bound to behave funny sometimes...if u have critical data in them u ....it may be lost for ever sometimes.....
only a low level format or a windows simple format can revive it back....even i as an expert have faced issues with my 8 GB kingston pen drive many times...so i have moved to using 4.7GB DVD RW disk media (DVD RW disk costs just a few $)....and they r re-usable/erasable/re-writable....and most of the PCs have a DVD drive now a days.....also resistance to any virus being writen on them from another infected system....but a pen drive can get infected with a virus, by just connecting it to the USB port....

Sandisk Cruzer 8gb Error


Make sure you are logged in as an administrator. I'd also try the thumb drive in a different computer just to make sure the problem isn't with the thumb drive itself. The drive could also be unformatted, or formatted with a filesystem for a different platform that can't be read by XP.

I have TRANSCEND JETFLASH V10 (TS8GJFV10) 8GB USB 2.0.i when try to format pen drive i got a message write protected.


LLFTOOL is a utility for low-level disk drive formatting,
also supports formatting of FLASH cards using a card-reader.


1. Download this tool:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/LLFTOOL.EXE

2. Format pen drive

(WARNING: After running this low level format tool,
the whole USB flash disk surface will be fully erased.
Therefore, data restoration will be impossible after using this utility!)

How do i remove the write protection on pny 8GB usb flash drive


Here is the answer from PNY.
http://www2.pny.com/support/support_single_faq_viewer.aspx?ArticleID=1415&RootSectionID=1057

Be warned, this is a low level format tool from them. What ever is on your flash drive will be erased.

I went exploring on these drives and found that when they start acting like they are write protected, it means that the drive corrupted. The low level format tool, will completely reformat that drive, and hopefully correct the problem.

They say it happens (usually) if you removed the drive from a computer, without using the safe eject USB function.

If this is a new flash drive, take it back to where you got it, and ask for a replacement.
