Question about SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micro SDCZ62048A10 Hard Drive

2 Answers

Have an ADATA PD16 - 16 GB Flash Drive

The flash drive is write protected and cannot be accessed, every message says a portion of the drive has been write protected. The problem is that I have never set the a protection password for any of it, all I've ever done is formated it and transferred files with it. Tried to reformat but am locked out. It does not have an external switch, I have examined it under a very large well lit magnifying glass. I have tried the software that came with it but nothing works. Can you help. All files are replaceable but I would like to use the usb drive again, only had a month. I even wrote to A DATA tech support , no answer.

Formatting this device makes it so that it is impossible to render the driver for it. You need a new flash drive. The reason for this is that the space on the drive doesn't recognize itself to be writeable. To empty files you must delete them, not format the entire drive.

I can't to format my 8 G flash(message:write protect) i used the Repair_v2.9.1.1.exe ,but it message that the usb flash not found. plz help me

Any time you see "write protect" it usually means there is a small switch on the device which prevents deleting data accidentally, even by writing over it.
Look for a small sliding switch and flip it to opposite position. That should fix it.

The Disk is write protected

  • Check for a write-protection switch. This switch, when engaged, will lock the contents of the flash drive and is a very common security feature. It is generally located on the side of the flash drive, and has an "enabled" or "on" position, and an "off" position. Slide this into the "off" position.
  • Override password security. If your flash drive has password security, but you have forgotten the code, you can try to override the security feature by going to the Start menu and selecting "Run." A dialogue box will pop up, into which you should type in the path to the file on the USB drive you want to access. Note: This only works on USB drives with very simple security. If the security is complex, this will not wor
  • 3Format the flash drive. If nothing else works, you can always format your USB flash drive, which will set all your write protections back to default. From there, you can customize them however you want, but all your data will be lost. To format the flash drive, go to the My Computer, right-click your drive and select "Format." A status bar will pop up. Once the status bar disappears, you can change the write-protection settings on your flash drive without incident.

    My Memorex USB flash drive is write protected

    t seems that your flash drive has some bad sectors since normally that's the error message you get when that happens, try to format your drive under disk management.
    Note: your files will be erased if you format your flash drive.
    If formatting your flash drive does not solve your problem I will advise you to contact Memorex technical support for better assistance, you can contact them at 1-877-363-6673
