ERROR: Failed to write track zero to disk (code: 5, Access is denied.

I'm getting this with all my brand new USB Pen SanDisk Cruiser Switch these worked in ver 5 any work arounds.
I've already reformatted them fat 32 t clear to the encryption software I had to do this for them to work for Ver 5

I used MiniTool Partition, deleted the disk, then created a new Fat 32 partition the rescue media completed problem solved

I see that you have solved your own problem.  But for others who may be looking here for a solution to "error code 5" and other USB rescue media issues, please see the KB troubleshooting article on that subject.

Just for gee wiz, my sister had a problem getting her thumb drive to work properly as well, though I'm not sure if it was "error code 5."  It still wouldn't work after using DISKPART to remove all partitions on the thumb drive.  When she finally performed a full format (as opposed to a quick format) of the thumb drive in Windows Reflect no longer had a problem creating the Rescue Media on her thumb drive.

Though it may be obvious to some that a full format might be required after deleting all partitions and creating a new partition, it's not necessarily obvious to all.  And even those in the know might assume Reflect would perform the correct format of the thumb drive when creating the Rescue Media.

I think the it could be different for different brands of thumb drives. But Cleaning them and formatting fat 32 seems to work good for SanDisk thumb drives. I had thought it had something to do with the encryption that comes with these drives. You put another factor in that people try to get their thumb drives to work.
