Hi,
On the left side of your SD card you have a micro switch on it and must be on the upper position. On the down position your SD card is write protected !

    I have fogoted this fact : in the picture behind your question is a mico SD card whith a reader or adapter.You must know if the adapter can operate in the two modes (READ/WRITE) or only READ.
    If you received an driver whith your adapter install it and perheaps it can operate in write mode otherwise only in READ mode.
    An other solution for you is to buy a card adapter whitch permit the to modes operations READ/WRITE ask it to your vendor before buy it.

How do i format sandisk 4gb micro sd hc


You shouldnt have to format it.Though it is possible. first check and make sure the drive is not locked. There should be a smll switch on the side of the sandisk. Second be Sure your device supports HC cards. Read This tip carefully If its your computer and it has a HD compatible slot insert the drive, open my computer , you should see its new icon as a drive. Right click on the drive and select Format from the list. But, as a reminder if your device supports the HC or XC format drive, it should work without a Format. Hope that helps ya, Gurvy

How can i remove the write protection in my memory card?


on the microSD there is no write protection on the card itself, but it may be on the SD adaptor if you are using one.Some adaptors have a little toggle switch on the side that enables write protect.
If that is not the case then you have a faulty card, they show up as write protected when they go faulty.

I just bought a pny 4gb mini sd card at walmart for my sidekick 3 and when i put it in the phone says its there but then it falls out. Im thinking maybe its beacause the sd card slot in my phone is very...


Yes. You have the wrong SD or the door isn't closed on the sidekick. PNY does sell adapters but you're better off getting the right size. Walmart should be able to exchange it for you since it sounds like they told you to get the wrong one.

Write Protection


there is a lock feature on the card and see if you can move it the other direction if so try it then. that lock keeps from putting anything on card and taking anything off. If that does not work try to format it in the laptop first.

How do i remove the write protection on pny 8GB usb flash drive


Here is the answer from PNY.

Be warned, this is a low level format tool from them. What ever is on your flash drive will be erased.

I went exploring on these drives and found that when they start acting like they are write protected, it means that the drive corrupted. The low level format tool, will completely reformat that drive, and hopefully correct the problem.

They say it happens (usually) if you removed the drive from a computer, without using the safe eject USB function.

If this is a new flash drive, take it back to where you got it, and ask for a replacement.
