Format drive using cmd, when USB is write protected.

  • diskpart
  • list disk
  • select disk x (where x is the number of your non-working drive – use the capacity to work out which one it is)
  • attributes disk clear readonly
  • clean
  • create partition primary
  • format fs=fat32 (you can swap fat32 for ntfs if you only need to use the drive with Windows computers)
  • exit
