    yep is true myself have one SSD Sandisk and never had issues, but when related to Pendrive's here in Brazil is very complicated because any people can bought "false" Pendrive sandisk until bus, subway or same in streets so caution with this devices @ low cost ;):(

    In the future, you could try this from an elevated Command Prompt:

    diskpart < Invoke diskpart command subset
    list disk < Lists all system disks. System drive is assigned 0 and flash drive will be 1 (or higher if you have other storage devices connected)
    select disk 1 < In this example I'm using 1. It's up to you to figure out the correct number assigned to the flash drive in the above step
    attributes disk < This will confirm if it's current status is read-only
    attributes disk clear readonly < Changes read-only status to read-write
    clean < Remove all existing partitions on the disk
    exit < Exit diskpart

    You can also use the command clean all which specifies that each and every sector on the disk is zeroed, which completely deletes all data contained on the disk.

    However users should be extremely careful using these commands as choosing the wrong disk can cause unnecessary headache.

    @Digital_Jagh : Have you closely examined the flash drive itself? Any chance that there's a small switch or tab on the outside that's used to write protect the device?

    I found this :
    upload_2018-9-29_20-46-12.png

    does this cause the non access to change/format the flash disk ?
