Nvidia shield USB Storage

Ive had a 128GB Sandisk ultra USB on my shield forever, back when IPTV Extreme would work as a DVR…I since have went to something else but left the USB in as extra internal storage.Years later …all of a sudden it says USB device ready to be unplugged…and all of the apps that have any files there dont work…Kodi and Cinema Hd icons have even disappeared…First thought was USB ports quit working, but not so, the wireless keyboard dongle works fine. I pulled the USB drive out and figured I would reformat it, but says its read only and I cant do it. Any suggestions? Bad USB drive? Factory reset the shield without USB installed (last resort)? Oh, not sure if relevant, but happened a few days after the newest update
Thanks in advance
