Why wont my laptop recognize a drive I used for Windows ReadyBoost and how do I use it again?
Question by Robert Martin /

I used a SanDisk 4GB flash drive for ReadyBoost on a laptop about a year ago. That laptop has since died and I have purchased a new laptop. I want to use the ReadyBoost flash drive on my new laptop but my computer will not recognize it.

I have tried to reformat the drive but keep getting a message that the drive is write-protected. How do I fix the flashdrive so I can ReadyBoost it for my new laptop?
