Hi guys, been away for a while, but finally got back into computing (thank god)

So my Kingston Datatraveler 111 32gb has suddenly gone into Raw format and constantly says its write protected, but there is no switch on it, and no amount of cmd commands and trying to format the thing seems to bring it back.
Is it dead? or can it be ressurected, it was working fine 2 days as its my Windows 10 install stick.

If it's under warranty, get it replaced. I know SanDisk have a good replacement procedure.
