  1. I have a Sandisk 16GB flash drive that is write protected, cant find any solution!
    After trying to format the drive I tried to remove the write protection with diskpart and now the drive wont appear in my computer but is still detected in disk management. Also it keeps coming up as local disk G for some reason.

    All suggestions appreciated :)

    Is there a partition for it in Disk Management? You need at least 1 partition on the drive.
