How to remove write protection for SD cards

The issue may be with your card reader or your card, if you installed the driver with the SD in the port and in the lock position then it may have messed with the functionality of the port.

I suggest you move any/all files from the card and then format it, or re-install the driver that corresponds to your SD card reader on your computer. If you cant do anything with the SD card as is, then re-install the driver for the card reader first, then try to format or write to the card.

I had an issue with formatting a card while ago, if you try both solutions above then use a 3rd party formatting program. I will paste a link below.

Hope this helps!

My kodak multi card reader is displaying a orange light and is not wanting to read any memory cards

Card readers can malfunction for various reasons. First, try using this (USB) card reader on another PC/laptop ? If it works on another computer, then a likely problem is the card reader driver on your PC. You may want to go through a "device" test first on your PC, to make sure that the device is functioning properly. Then, locate and download a software driver (for this card reader), and install it. [ Yes, when you first use / insert the card reader into the USB port, the PC automatically will locate, download and install the driver on your PC... like any plug-and-play device.] So, if the device isn't working anymore, the driver may have been lost or corrupted. And recovering them may be possible from your backup ... when the device was still working properly.

If the card reader doesn't work on any other PC's, then it's likely that the card reader is "burnt" out. These are inexpensive circuits and (very) disposable items.

Importing photos (previously successfully)stops

One way to solve problems like this is to use a card reader/writer. This will get your pictures to the computer from the card reader which appears as another drive. Most newer card readers need no drivers.

If you still want to use your camera to copy files to the computer, then you should uninstall the program and re-install according to the instructions.

We have an Hp computer. The memory reader in the

Hi Larry,
There are a few likely scenarios that would cause your card reader not to work.

1. The cable inside the computer that connects the front-panel card reader to the motherboard has come loose. You can check inside the case to make sure the cable is tight and connected. You should do this with the computer turned off, and turn it on when you're done.

2. The card reader itself has gone bad and stopped working. If this is the case, you'll need to either contact the manufacturer for repair, or you can go out and get yourself an external USB card reader for cheap.

3. The card reader is functional, but there's something wrong in the operating system that prevents the cards from being read, because the operating system doesn't know how to address the card reader. This can usually be fixed by re-installing drivers and software for the card reader.

Hi Sandra,

If you are attempting to transfer photos off an SD card in your camera and you are connecting your camera directly to your PC then you may want to get an external SD card reader as this is a fairly common problem and an external reader should solve it.

If you are already using a card reader I would think that the cables connecting the reader to your computer are defective. To test this try connecting your card reader to a different USB port, if it functions fine then you know the problem is with the previous port you were connecting too.

ALSO, check in "my computer" and see if it registers as a removable drive there. If not, then check in the device manager while the card is inserted and look for any yellow icons. There is a chance that the card reader need a driver installed or updated.

Hope this helps and please take a second to rate!

Not working with memory Card

It appears that your card reader is not functional. It could be that it is not installed properly - try installing again. If an installation CD came with it, try running it again. An installation CD will be needed with Windows 98 but probably not with later versions of Windows. Do you have a cable for connecting the camera to the computer? If so, you don't need the card reader. It is a bit risky taking the card out and putting it back in all the time because static electricity can destroy the delicate memory card, so using the cable is safer.
