I have a Nokia 6230 and recently each time I put my MMC card in my card reader for my computer it says : "Cannot copy "X file" The disc is write-protected 
Remove the write protection or use another disk 
I already tried formating the card and even putting tape on the card like I read somewhere but it doesnt work and I dont have the cables or installation software, any help will be appreciated.

All card readers are not the same. I just went through this same thing. I had a new card reader from Radio Shack, 6 slot 5 in one, that I had been using for my new SDHC cards that go with my new Kodak camera I got for Christmas. My old card reader, also inexpensive from Radio Shack, had been put away for a few weeks since it would not read the new High Capacity cards. I had been using the old one for my cell phone MMC card for about 4 years and never had a problem. Today my MMC card showed up as "write protected" when I tried to add a file to it using the new card reader. I searched and searched the web to find an answer and even went so far as to back up my card onto my laptop (I could pull files off but not add any) in preparation for reformatting my card in the phone. Then it dawned on me that I should try the old card reader before I tried reformatting. It worked just fine in the old card reader, just as it always has. Just make sure that your card reader accepts MMC cards which are the same size and shape, only slightly thinner than the SD cards which are so popular. Incidentaly my SDHC cards can't be read in my old card reader or my 3 year old HP card reader in my computer. ALL CARD READERS ARE NOT EQUAL.

The only solution is to change the card reader, bcoz when this "write protected" message starts coming it means your card reader have lost the data reading capability. you can use it to see your files in mmc but you can't delete and add any thing , believe it .

i hve experience it many times..

Remove write protection from 1gb mmc memory card

You will see a little "button" you can slide up and down at the side. This controls the write protection. Just like it the other way and that should do it.

This seems to be the problem of most of us these days and some of our readers who wanted to know the methods how they can remove the Write Protected error from their USB drives like Pen Drives and memory cards.

What is Write Protected error and why it happens?
In the Write Protected error, we can’t write or copy any data in our flash drives and even can’t format the drive.
There are many reasons that cause this problem, let’s see solutions of them.
• First of all try to locate a small switch (if any, that you may have not noticed) at some place on the drive or memory card reader. This is the prime reason for this error. If there is one, switch it to the other side to turn the protection off.
• Yes I know this problem is also occurring these days without this switch but not to worry. Just download this helpful software form here

and run it to execute a “low-level format” on the drive. This software is quite handy and may take few attempts to actually remove the error.
• The problem can also be caused by some virus activity so just get it scanned by some updated good anti virus which may solve your problem.
• BUT if none of the methods listed above solves your problem then your pen drive might have gone corrupted, so just get it replaced.
Hope any of the methods listed above solves your problem.
Update 1:
After the low level format, you may need to “Partition the drive“. Dont worry, partitioning a pen drive means allocating it its File System and Cluster Size that was lost after the Low Level Format.
For that:
  1. Run diskmgmt.msc in Run.
  2. In the disk management window, select the pen drive, right click on it and click on Format.
  3. Now choose the File System and Allocation Unit Size and do not check the boxes below.

Click OK and the drive will be reusable after this.
Update 2 (Better Solution):
Follow the steps in this post and just put the value 0 (zero) in step 5.
This will surely solve your problem now.
