Repairs memory sticks write-protected or undetected

Hi friends, today I thought to do a tutorial on repairing USB sticks and memory cards can not be formatted and you can not delete files, or that are not recognized by the operating system.
We chose to do this tutorial because even I had this problem yesterday. I wanted to format the stick and we did receive a message like "this disk is write-protected" Obviously this is a problem, especially for those with less experience. Often these sticks go in the trash, although they can be repaired.
Why are not recognized or sticks that can not be formatted?
The reasons can be many, it is frequently because of an infected program or some files are prtejate write so the stick or memory card files over from the write-protection. often these issues are just software bugs and can be repaired, unfortunately there are cases in which sticks have exhausted write cycles of flash cells and can not be used. Fortunately cases where the sticks are "consumed" meet rarely, because it sticks and memory cards are used less intensively than hard drives or SSDs.
The fact is that the problem exists, fortunately in most cases, the problems may be related remedied.
How do?
Open a session in CMD with Admin rights and give the following commands:
1. diskpart
2. list disk
3. select disk "and mumar disk sick"
4. attributes disk clear readonly
5. chub
6. create partition primary
7. fs = NTFS format "or fat32"
Wait for the format to 100%.
Make sure you select the drive, to be stick or memory card that require treatment, a moment of inattention can spoil the whole operating system and / or files.

    Tips for avoiding future damage USB storage media or SD cards (memory cards):
    - DO NOT NEVER cancel a file transfer from the stick / card to PC or from PC to stick / card.
    - Never remove a stick or a memory card while writing files on it (or copy files from it to your PC) or is used by another software
    - It is best that before disconnecting the USB stick to left click on the USB icon in the system tray (near the clock) and choose Eject option from the context menu ...
    - Do not remove or insert a memory card from / to the phone while the phone works (some phones have support "hot swap" that allows replacing / removing the data card while the phone works)
    - Because all winter came, if you have a stick (true for smartphones, tablets) and come with him out of the cold, do not immediately enter the PC. Let stick / phone / tablet at least half an hour to get used to room temperature. And then using these devices heat up. A sudden transition from warm to cold will definitely spoil your device / USB storage (USB stick)
    - Once you finish the job with the stick, not leave them connected to PC because they are read / initialized every startup / reboot of the PC. Thus eligible for use useless reading cycles
    - Some sticks and adapters for Micro SD cards have a buton physically protect storage device (as had floppy disks once) button has two positions, first enable writing / reading and the second position buton permitted only reading . Check that that buton be in the correct position. In many cases the mere switch buton opposite position troubleshoot "write-protected" or "this device is write protected"

  8. A somewhat similar but slightly different problem I had recently with a stick now for 8 gb. TDK, and I'll tell you how I solved it. We all have or not an LCD or LED TV with USB socket in the house back in which is inserted a USB stick ptr. watching a good movie etc.It my stick went whenever it stuffing and we (see) TV without this problem until I made a bootable stick with Windows on it I made the deal with him ptr I needed after I formatted the stick. , Mentioned that the TV sees both NTFS filesystems and FAT32 and of course I FAT32 formatted., And surprise you no longer watch TV in any shape .... (on the desktop do not have problems with it ) .., we all do ba ba NTFS in FAT32 and all for nothing .... Now I got the idea to look me in disk management and there I noticed that the stick had primary partition (behind Windows) I had him and I said to him to make him see what logical partition it happens ..,,, I made the (EASUS HOME PARTITION) I deleted the primary partition and I did the logical FAT32 now take you as my tv again sees very well with no problems. Now I know not to even say that to have been the problem. or was it something.? I am glad that I was done and no need to buy another stick.

    I screwed up sticks from the 3 2 good quality. I tried many methods. Without success. Honestly: I suspect Windows operating system 8.0 pro. All have failed the "write protect" only when they were connected to a win 8. It may seem a joke but were used with care and stayed mask how suddenly malfunctioned at a time in a few months. Now I win 8.

  10. in cases that do not work that way, you can also try to boot from a CD with Windows XP partition and you will find the stick, wipe your partition, then create and should work

    Hello darlings. Let me tell you what I did. I was desperate because of a stick that saved dozens of tutorials and hobby books (close in a few years, so I imagine many dozens of hours of work were there) no longer read correctly - not open files and Folder names were not letters, but looked like hieroglyphics. I do not know what caused it. Well, despair teaches man, so it occurred to me that I could save you the information ... if I stick in the freezer a few hours .... (so longer proceed with phone cards through the years 2000). Guess what! It worked! I recovered all the files, in excellent condition (no missing pages, undamaged, very ok).
    I do not mean to do so, this is the method of Gaga, but I really was desperate and lucky for me, it worked.

    Okay, from what I observed, this tutorial is 95% useless for most problems. CMD can not remove copyrights that implements a phone MicroSD (as happened to Cosmin others). Sometimes stick is pure & simple crashed (when does not see computeru '). For the repair, the only way is to it zeroizezi (ie to delete any specific information on each byte), so being made only by a professional (not found on the net). CMD's working strictly with what options Microsoft offers (R) Windows => to repair the protected volume or other nonsense.

  70. Good. To me it's something different, go to format fat32, but I can not format it in ntfs, it let me access to put files, music, games, everything I want on it, only I can not ntfs format. Why? I give some windows format tells me windows WAS Unable to complete the format ntfs. What can I do?

    Sal. I have some problems with 16 gb stick. I copied a few movies in your PC which could open BSplayer. On the stick But I appeared in another format. I tried to open the bspayer and goes, I say there are codecs for. Matroska. I do not understand why they changed the format themselves, they are in pc. Avi and Matroska stick. That would be one problem. Another is that I wanted to put some pictures, but transferred only folder, so without content. If I copy something, when I open my message appears, corrupted file. When I delete, I can not appear as a strange error. I formatted the stick and put and some movies. One opened, but it was copied all (buffering) and the other did not open, and I appear and that message not find codec. Can you help me please? Thanks a lot!

    3. select disk "and drive sick mumar"
    How do I know which disk number?

    • recognize your drive by memory. If your stick has 4 GB in list disk should show you something about 3900 MB. Do not even choose your hard drive partitions, be careful.

      • Hello, me after giving CLEAN, I say this: DiskPart year has encountered error: The mediais write protected. See the System Event Log for more information.

        How to proceed?

        • I had the same problem and eventually we managed this way: Registry editor-> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE-> System-> CurrentControlSet-> Control-> StorageDevicePolicies-> WriteProtect give you value 0 00000001 * update and instead pass 1 0 and went formatted in Windows

    another sees as your PC can not copy anything he asks me to format ... give form and go to fat 32 99% then says it can not format sal ... so are many more situations
    the sticks I repaired 6 1, indeed with this tutorial
    situations and situations ...

      I doubt Disk 0 represent your stick! Take the tutorial to be more careful, the right of each disk storage capacity is mentioned in the right column Size (marrime / size)
      Disk 0 most likely represents your hard drive and do not think you want to give commands tutorial!

  98. It's not a question but a comment.
    I am interested in how ,, ,, merge video signal from a satellite receiver and a surveillance system on the single cable, like cable television and can select what they want from the TV remote.
