SD Card "Write Protection"

By VAR1016 ·

And a Merry Christmas to all.

I have a 2GB SD card in my camera which, entirely by itself (I promise) has become "write protected" and therefore cannot be used.

Can anyone tell me how to remove this annoying feature? I have tried the usual right clicking options and even tried to format it using the command screen all to no avail.

Thanks in advance,

Unlock an SD Card ...

With the SD card label upright and facing you, the diagonal-cut corner should be to the top right.

Look down the left-hand side from the top, about a centimetre down there is a little slider - when it is DOWN it is locked, UP it is unlocked.

Usually the slider is a garish colour by comparison to the body of the SD card so it can be easily identified, but I've seen a few that are covertly coloured.
