There is a "lock" switch on the side of the card.

Make sure it is not in the LOCKED position.





Best of Luck.

My HDD HXD 1TB light but don t work


I'm assuming you have a 1TB external hard drive ... that you can connect to your Mac or a PC, e.g via the USB (or Firewire) port.
If the disk drive is formatted for a Mac, the disk (files, format) may not be compatible on a Windows computer. The reverse is not usually a problem.
If you plug it into the Windows computer, and the disk content doesn't show up (quickly), then the disk/file system has been corrupted. It's not likely the disk that is the problem. It's the contents that's all "confused".
If you need to use the external disk drive on both the Mac and PC, try formatting it on Windows (first). Then add contents to it, and it should work for both the PC and the Mac
