    I'm pretty sure it would be one of these?

    Like Tito said, manufacturers also have tools released that can remove write protection, update and also reflash the device as a last resort.

    @Acyuta

    There is a huge help section here that covers SanDisk devices, if the 'clean' and format trick doesn't work for you. Need anymore help feel free to ask.

    Yes, exactly, except it's green. Do you know how to repair it?

    Hi

    Did you found anything? I have two of exact the same usb sticks, both having exact the same problem. 'No media attached' ... There exist tools from some brands that are able to fix this, but only for drives of that brand and since these are brandless ...

    "No media attached" could mean there is physically nothing (electronic) inside your usb stick. From whom did you buy these "brandless" drives? Do they have a good reputation? A warranty/return policy?

    And, with all due respect, "no media attached" could also mean the stick isn't fully seated. It could be a tight fit. Check to see the device is plugged in all the way.

    People with the "No media attatched" occurrence:

    This can be caused by a few things.

    First check, if you have an adapter, that you have inserted the actual memory device such as your Micro SD card, etc. Secondly check your write protection switch is disabled, some adapters and memory sticks have these attached for security and safety reasons.

    If you have no luck with these two solutions, you can always try tools from the device manufacturer and/or created a GParted live disc and formatting the device.

    Last resort, check your manufacturer warranty as the device could have become faulty. And some advice, is a good idea not to use NTFS on memory sticks unless being used to install Window, etc, use ExFat or FAT32 partitions instead if used for daily tasks that include file transfers.

    Regards, The Dev.
