    It is possible that the drive has no write capability in the hardware itself. It likely to be readonly as that is the purpose of it, recovery.

    Hi there

    some of these devices may well be READ ONLY -- I sometimes get some of these from people demo-ing Stock trading software etc.

    In any case USB sticks / micro SD cards etc are cheap enough --why bother with a "difficult one" !!!.

    Cheers
