Yet another Prolific USB disk read/write protect error


Recommended Posts

I bought a 1GB Corsair Flash Voyager last summer and it worked fine until recently. A few weeks back, my pc intermittently failed to recognize it. When it does see it, Windows says it's a Prolific USB disk and I am asked to format the device. If I try to format, Windows will always reply with either "Format cannot be completed" or "The disk is write protected". I have also tried to use EzRecover - - - it fails and reports "Writing configuration failed". I think it's a bad part...

How do I return it for a replacement?

Please try and format your Flash Voyager with Corsair EZ-Recover Utility. Please note; this will not recover Data; it’s made to recover the FAT table for the Flash drive.

But First if you need to recover some data there are some third party utilities available that may help you if you have some data you need to recover from this site.

If you still have problems, lets get it replaced. Please use the RMA request found in TSXpress or follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it!
