    USB Write Protection (Many methods online didn’t help)

    by rezznorock ·


    I was given a USB and told that it is bought from China (I can keep it if I can fix it). The issue with this USB is when I first open it, Windows told me that it must be formatted. When I try to format it, a popup appears telling me that it is write protected.

    List of things I tried and failed
    – diskpart
    – registry
    – (most of) 3rd party softwares
    – The USB has no physical switch locks

    More info

    From disk management it shows 32GB RAW and 468GB Unallocated Space
    From diskpart list disk it shows 500GB total and 468GB Free
    From diskpart list volume it shows 32GB RAW (also tried formatting volume directly and failed due to write protection)

    Thank you in advance
