There is a Lock switch on the left side of the SD card. Make sure the Lock switch is slid up (unlock position). You will not be able to modify or delete the contents on the memory card if it is locked.

If the lock switch is not on lock:
1. Slide the switch up and down. Repeat this 3 times.
2. Let it stay on the Lock position for 30 seconds.
3. Slide the switch up to unlock the card.
4. Try to transfer files into the device.

How do i shut off write protection


Hi, i have here a photo that will show you on how to remove write protect on a micro SD.
1. You need to insert your micro SD into an adapter. 2. Unlock the micro SD through your adapter as shown below. 3. Once done, your micro SD is no longer write protected. eibraz_16.jpg

NOTE: The lock switch doesn't lock the micro SD into the adapter; The lock switch doesn't lock the data on the micro SD; The lock switch simply tells the "user" not to write. It just says "please, don't write me."
I hope this helps.

Hello there!

Well somehow data on your usb flash is write protected, maybe before you locked part of your usb pen drive and losted that encryptor software on your usb.

Solution is next, find any software for formatting usb flash memory sticks, force format it and there you go. Thats about it! =)

MicroSD atchment write protect


The microSD card has no visible write protect tab that you can access: you need to use a Micro-SD to SD/mini-SD adapter that usually comes with your Micro-SD card and use the ON/OFF sliding tab on the adapter to disable or enable the wiite protection on your Micro-SD card: test the access via the adapter card before removing it.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go!
