32GB Survivor - how to remove write protection

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've a 32GB Survivor that I've been happily using for about a year, but now it says it is write protected.

 

I've copied the information off the drive and tried a number of format utilities;

windows format

dos format

HP USB Stick Format Tool

linux cfdisk

linux fdisk

 

I've also tried some disk utilities;

killdisk

shred

 

I would like to RMA the drive back to Corsair, but would prefer to delete some of the information form the drive before doing so.

 

Can anyone help?

 

many thanks

Hi Ram Guy,

 

many thanks for the reply, I've a RMA case open.

 

However, before I return the drive I would prefer to delete some of the info on it.

 

The drive is completely readable, just not writeable.

 

Any ideas?

 

many thanks
