Again, my 16 GB v210w went write protected.
The problem appeared after I formatted it FAT32 on my Mac.
I tried to format it on XP with many USB drive utilities, but always sector is said to be =0 and an error is raised.
Is this flash drive Mac compatible?
How to change it? My dealer made one change but its policy doesn't allow a 2nd change.
After one week of usage, my new USB Flash Drive v210w 16 GB appears as Write Protected.
Impossible to add a new file, delete an old file, even format the whole USB Flash Drive.
I tried various procedures described on forums, as
- My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlS
et\Control\StorageDevicePoliciesWriteProtect > Value Data set to 0
and normal formatting (Properties > Format) and low level formatting tools, as
- HP USB disk storage format tool SP27608-2.1.8.exe
but in vain.
What happened? How to resume using my USB Flash Drive normally?
I'm running a mini 311c on XP SP3.
Thank you for your help and best regards.
