Hello @Kets1

 

All you can do is try one of the tools on PNY's downloads page. Perhaps Ufix V will do it?

https://www.pny.com.tw/index.php?cls=2&mode=download

 

Or you can try changing permissions in the properties of the drive as in this websites instructions...

How to Remove the Write Protection from Read Only Flash Drive

 

 

Otherwise if none of the above work, I dont have another solution.
