There is a little tab on that unit that slides back and forth. If the tab is missing, you need to use a piece of scotch tape to simulate the tab.

Either there's a little switch on the side, or the card has failed.

Insert the flash drive in a USB slot and see what drive letter gets assigned to it. Right click on the new drive letter and select format from the drop down menu. Follow the directions on the next screen to format the drive.

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge.
The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Once the device is recognized by your computer, locate the icon for the drive and select it, right click and scroll down to the format option on the context menu. Be sure you don't format over a drive that has necessary files as formatting will erase all files on the drive. Choose the appropriate format for the system it will be used on.....Windows, Linux, Apple etc.... Often you will have other options, such as Quick Format (most appropriate) or Complete and Utterly Long Format (which - as you might infer - takes for freakin' ever!)

Just plug it in and it should be recognized by Windows and assigned a drive letter.

Try this: Go to Start, right click on My Computer, select manage. In the left pane click device manager, scroll to Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Delete all of them. System may not allow some to delete, thats fine just delete all that it will allow. Then leave your usb connected to the PC and reboot. OS will reinstall all usb drivers on its own, and it may then see your stick.

You can try using a file recovery software like Bad Copy Pro 4.10.125. It works well for me.

You most likely will need a different card to be compatible with your MacBook pro. Apple website should be helpful.
