[SOLVED] How to remove write protect fm ScanDIsk USB Stick ???

Does any one know how to remove write protect on this USB Stick (Command Line even maybe)-- 8 bucks 16 GB get it- install a iso boot to it then go to put firmware on it and NOPE! writed protected. Google time -- the thing is saturated with this question. I have not found an answer to yet. Seems everybody is victim to ScanDisks New Improved "Dependable, Professional Drive" -- gives the professional an excuse to not take his work home with him. As he cannot copy it is moble usb stick -- lol

and No there is not a slide thingy on the side to turn write protect on and off --  mad

I know this is got a be a stumper  wink

sudo hdparm -r0 /dev/sdX

Replace "X" with the drive letter to which the USB stick has been assigned.
