SanDisk Cruzer Edge write protected
my Cruzer Edge 4gb flash drive which i brought from Argos,
it was working ok for a couple of days, and then the it stopped working,
it had the software on there, and now the software has gone, since then the flash drive has become write protected, and i have tired formatting via windows and dos, and still wont format, due to write protection, i have tired the registry hack,
hell i have even tired a couple or programs to try and format it but they say cant find the usb flash drive even no its installed,
i have tired to remove the read only atttibillitys from the folders, i get write protected.
so i cant add or delete anything to the usb flash drive,,
i am running windows, xp sp3..
can anyone help please thanks
