Connect the microSD card to a computer
Use a memory card reader to connect the microSD card to a computer for formatting. In case you're using an SD card adapter, ensure that the write protection key is in the unlock position.
Locate the card
Right-click My Computer, and click Manage. Go to the Disk Management tab on the left pane, and locate your microSD card from the list of available disks.
Format the microSD card
Right-click on the microSD card's drive, and click Format. This eliminates all data, including corrupted files that cause write protection in storage devices
If your PC has an SD card reader you can place the microSD card into the adapter that it came with and then insert it into the slot on the PC. The SD card reader will be a small slot usually at the front of the computer.
If there is no SD card reader then place the microSD card into the gadget you use it with such as your camera/phone etc and connect the device to your PC using a cable the device came with. The cable will have a USB jack at one end that will fit into the USB ports at the front/back of your computer.
Once your device is connected you can follow the on-screen instructions to access your pictures.
Are you using a card reader? If yes, you need to isolate the problem. Please follow the steps below:
1. Try connecting your memory card reader into different USB port of the computer. 2. Try using different card reader to see if there's a problem with the card or with the reader. 3. Connect it into different computer. 4. Remove and reinsert the MicroSD in the card reader and make sure that the card is properly seated. 5. If the card reader and the computer are working but still unable to detect the MicroSD, try to reformat the card. 6. If same problem persist, return it to the store and have it replaced.
