Some SD cards have write protect tab on the side but not all do so check for that tab. If it does not have write protect it may be you device you using it with or the memory card as a whole has gone out on you.

1. Check for write protected tab on the sides of the card
2. Check the device (try reformatting it in a card reader)

3. Replace memory stick.

Thanks and please do be considerate when leaveing feedback and ratings today, thanks

SOURCE: memory card

there is a switch on the side of some cards. If it is a software memory protect than u need the program.
Otherwise u can do it by wiping everything off it with a reformat. make sure us are using the same format as is there (probably FAT16).
If that doesn't work get a partition manager program and delete and reinstall the partition and format is - make sure u get the RIGHT format

SOURCE: how to remove write protection on a memory card

Removing the write protection depends on the source of the problem.
Broadly speaking, it can be any of the following scenarios

  1. There is a write-protection tab on the mini sd card HOLDER. Every time you insert this into your PC or card holder, this tab slides to the write protect position. Either keep resetting, inserting & reinserting until it doesn't slide or tape it down.
  2. There is nothing wrong with the mini sd card. Simply locate the write protection key and push it.
  3. The mini sd card has some error: Go for a low level formatting.
  4. The card has virus: Remove the virus. The link for the steps is present in the related link at the bottom of the article.


There is an easy way to solve this problem: Simply put the yellow lock in the middle of its slider. No sticky tape required, as shown below. But if your still having the same problem i suggest you try the sticky tape.

problem is only that small moveable yellow lock switch is not making, just put sellotape over it maybe two layers needed to make switch.
== Answer == Even though what is written below may work, the problem is probably that on the card reader (if you have one) there is a small switch that has lock written on the side. If this is pushed down, the drive is write protected, push it in the opposite direction and it may fix your problem I had the same problem with several cards but eventually found a way around it. DON'T buy a new one!

Make sure the SD card lock is 'off' and then use thin, opaque sticky tape (ie non see-through; eg insulation tape) to cover the whole gap but keep clear of the metal contacts at the back.

Your card should work fine now... don't know why this has to be done, but it works! Additional info:
Reason #1,
the mechanical lock switch accidentally moves to the "locked" position during insertion due to the poor quality of the switch. Hence, by taping it, you are actually preventing the lock switch to travel towards the lock position. i.e. downwards.

Want to copy some files to a memory card from a laptop but it says that the memory card is write-protected. how do i remove the write-protection to copy the files.


Some memory cards are having a write protection switch integrated on the side or on the back of the memory card for preventing the content from being erased or overwritten by accident, just like floppy disks. Both SD Memory Card and xD-Picture Card have their write protection switch on the side of the memory card in contrast to the Memory Stick PRO and some Memory Stick Duo that have their switch on the back of the card.

The SmartMedia Card is also supporting write protection but not with a switch. For protecting the SmartMedia Card's content you need to put a sticker on the card's write protection pad. It is the circle that can be found in the middle of the card, when facing the front of the card.
