    I can't delete or format the Kingston SD memory card too because it keep saying it is "Write-protected". The slide is in unlock mode and I can only delete all photos from the memory card by the camera. Please advise what I can do. Thanks.

There should be a little sliding lever on the side of the card, one position locks the card and the other position unlocks it. If it is locked then it will be write protected.

Kingston memory card write protected


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

I have 1gb kingston microsd card not opened tell password now.plse tell me master password


I can help. What is not the problem, is the position of the switch entirely. With the SD card Face up and the tiny white plastic switch on the left side, should be slid toward the card edge connector (the shortest side). I know you may have done this and it still doesn't work. Here's why, On the opposite side of the SD card from the switch, there is a tiny "Notch" cut out.

Place a piece of tape, masking, electrical, sometimes transparent will work. Be very precise in placing the tape over the notch, but not over the brass connector on the opposite side. Then place it in your card reader, format it, read and write files to your desire.

This is a little known issue with the design of all SD cards. The notch forces them to work in camera's, MP3 Players, PDA's, etc. that are portable devices, but not in USB card readers or computers with SD reader slots.

The card reader with the SD card has this extra built in feature to protect copyrights (for some reason on blank cards), and makes it useless for custom applications. Once you have "Unprotected" the SD card, installed your files, then remove the tape.

If you get the same error again after applying the tape, add a second layer. Double check that you did not cover the connection edge, and the plastic tab is closet to the side you insert in the device you are using.

Sometimes it takes several tries, but it will work with patience. If you have existing files on the SD card, insert it, right click, select properties. Then remove the "Read Only" check by the box and try to delete or add files then. If it says Disk Write Protected, then check the tape again.

Kingston DataTraveler Card Reader Problem


I have one also here just like that always write protected, you know what is the problem of that is your card reader, its a USB connection input to your computer, all you have to do buy a new one Card Reader, I'm sure it will not work anymore unless you try to repair that Card Reader to a Technician. Always pop-up write protected but when I twist my USB Wire sometimes it work, sometimes not. Don't let plug it again because this time your USB connection in CPU will be damage. Supposed to be only Card Reader is the and maybe your USB Connections too will damage.
Hope this idea will help you.

It doesnt work when i insert the card with my micro memory card and asks for a disk


Hi likkle_miss_,

The Micro adapter has no memory in it. It is just an adapter to use so you can plug your Micro SD memory card into a larger (SD) slot. The SD Micro memory card needs to be inserted into the adapter.

Write protection


The slide on the card actually allows a switch to activate on the inside of the player/recorder. If changing the position of the slide on the memory stick has no effect, look at the microswitch inside the machine next.

Write protected removable


Hello Everyone!!! I know how it feels when you are in a serious problem and no solution is helpful to you! I have a SAMSUNG SGH E250 and 1GB KINGSTON micRO SD card. I faced the same "Write protected" problem and I searched for this solution and didnt find a good one! NO SOLUTION HELPED ME!.. First of all I would like to tell all the Solution Submitters that micRO SD card doesnt have a switch on it but its adapter have it. I know those who have card readers can put their Cards in the adapters and slide the lock downwards (or to opposite direction) and after that they can put that adapter into Card reader and the problem will be solved !!! But this solution is for those who doesnt have card readers !!!

SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM:-

1. Put the card into the slot of your mobile and connect it via USB cable to your PC.

2. If you do have a driver CD of your mobile then install all the drivers.

3. When you are done and can see the card as "Removable disk" on your PC then Go to Tools in Top ( File, Edit, View, Favourites, Tools, Help) Then Folder Options - View - Show hidden files (tick on the Show hidden files) and also tick on the "Show system hidden files (This is important). Then Apply - OK...

4. Open the Removable Disk (Your Memory Card), You will find a hidden system file. Just delete that file with some special softwares (manual deleting will not let the file delete coz its write protected).

5. Try to copy some file in it, if it allows you to copy then CHEERS!!!

6. If not then reformat it with your mobile phone..

Actually I accidently did the same steps and deleted the esamsung something file and I SUCCEDED !!!

Same applies with All USB pendrives and Memory Cards...

HOPE IT WORKS FOR YOU !!!.

IF NOT THEN LET ME KNOW YOUR PROBLEMS IN DETAIL AND MAIL IT ME at abhinavmassey@yahoo.co.in.
I WILL FIND A SOLUTION FOR IT..
