There is a small switch on the left side of the memory card. Slide it up and the card will work. On my SD card it is yellow.

Is there any switch on the flash drive? if yes then move it to other side to unlock memory card.Is the drive full? If not it might be an idea to try uninstalling and reinstalling the driver. To do that try:

  • Plug in the flash drive
  • Right click on My Computer
  • Choose Properties
  • Switch to the hardware tab
  • There should be a button like "Device Manager". Click on this.
  • Find your flash drive on this list. Right click on it and choose uninstall.
  • Unplug the flash drive, wait a few seconds then plug it back in.
  • You should now get a new hardware wizard dialog from which you can reinstall the drivers.
Use below link if above solution doesn't work

Want to copy some files to a memory card from a laptop but it says that the memory card is write-protected. how do i remove the write-protection to copy the files.


Some memory cards are having a write protection switch integrated on the side or on the back of the memory card for preventing the content from being erased or overwritten by accident, just like floppy disks. Both SD Memory Card and xD-Picture Card have their write protection switch on the side of the memory card in contrast to the Memory Stick PRO and some Memory Stick Duo that have their switch on the back of the card.

The SmartMedia Card is also supporting write protection but not with a switch. For protecting the SmartMedia Card's content you need to put a sticker on the card's write protection pad. It is the circle that can be found in the middle of the card, when facing the front of the card.

It says my memory card is protected


On the side of the memory card, there is a small slider that locks and protects the memory card from being overwritten. Yours may be in the locked position. Simply pull out your memory card form your camera and unlock your memory card by sliding the tab.
Hope this helps,
