I tried to make a bootable USB drive for windows 7 following this thread : [HowTo] Use Manjaro to create a bootable Windows USB
And everything went fine until trying to mount the iso :
sudo mount -o loop /path/to/windows/iso/filename.iso ~/winiso
Where I was stopped by the write protection of the device (a SanDisk USB drive) :
mount: /home/user/winiso: WARNING: device write-protected, mounted read-only.
which makes me unable to copy the files later in the process.
I tried several things after googling it, including hdparm, and reformatting, but it doesn't seem to work and at this point I think I've done more harm than good, I can't even create a sdb1 partition anymore and I will still get this 'read-only' warning.
So I think I need to start from the beginning again and try to fully understand what I'm doing. So if any of you could explain how to turn off this protection and take a clean start it would be awesome
