I have an LG USB flash and I bought it new and have not used it at all. I have tried formatting using all the software I came up with both from a previous question here at makeuseof, other blogs and forums and still not able to. I have used HP formatting software, Easeus Partition and other means still did not work. If I use the HP formatting, it says the device is media protected and if I used windows it says unable to format. What do I do? I am just frustrated. I have done the registry path of changing the values after creating a key in the windows registry still no solution. Please HELP!!!
