This is not a disaster, it just means that I have to consider this flash
pen obsolete and buy a new one.
I have been using it for backup of some hard disk directories,  so it is
no big deal if I lose whats on it, since my harrdisk is intact.

Perhaps I should buy a  removable HD instead.

Plug the drive in, and then run "tail /var/log/messages" to see what
messages are generated. I would not be surprised to if the problem
was that the drive was assigned a different letter. Also, you do not
want to use fdisk on anything but the base drive. Using it on
/dev/sdc1 will produce all kinds of interesting errors on a good drive.

It goes like this:

I cannot see anything here pointing to an error situation (?) It does not even report that it set to write-only.
But it is still write-only.

I was only trying fdisk to see if it would disclose anything, but it did not get that far.
