    Okay. Firstly remove you sd card and move the little white lever (write protection switch) to the top. Now reinsert the card into the camera and it should work. If it doesn't work , the error is probably with your camera. If you open your sd slot of your camera and look inside with a bright light , you
    should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little
    copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows: 1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off. 2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock. Contrary
    to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic
    switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If
    you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you
    would still be able to use the card normally. It is incredible
    difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd
    card slot. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a pin
    or sowing needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the
    camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it. If
    this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the
    switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve
    this error. This should cost no more than $50. Please feel free to contact me if you need further information Kind regards Stephan

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.

SOURCE: memory card is write protected

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.
