SD cards are write protected

Q: SD cards are write protected

I am trying to format an SD card, but it is saying that it's write protected. I attempted to do this with multiple SD cards, and I had the same problem. I looked all over the internet on how to delete write protection. I tried the switch on the card, checking properties, commands, regedit, and computer management. Nothing is working. My computer is also recognizing and not recognizing the sd card off and on the whole time its plugged in.

Preferred Solution: SD cards are write protected

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

New dv6-7000 laptop (Win7 64-bit) has a problem I can't seem to solve:  When using any SDHC memory card you cannot write or erase files to the card.  You can read the files just fine, but you get a "Write Protected" error when trying to write or erase.   The card is, of course, not write protected, and can be written to in several other laptop/desktop SD drives that I've tried.   And I've tried different brands/sizes of SDHC cards.  Smaller capacity regular SD cards work just fine.   I tried removing this device and rebooting to reinstall the hardware, but no help. The Realtek SD Driver shows as version 6.1.7600.16385 in Device Manager properties, dated 6/20/06.  HP's support site shows a newer driver version 6.1.7601.29005 dated 2/24/12.  When I download and run sp56166.exe to update the driver, it seems to go through the update process successfully. But the driver still shows as the older version in Device Manager.  And, of course, the problem still exists.  Any ideas would be much appreciated!  Hard to believe that a new dv6 laptop can't properly write or erase files from High Capacity SDHC memory cards.   Thank you!

A:dv6-7000 can't write to SDHC cards ("write protected" error)

I understand high capacity SD cards return the message they are write protected in your system.

 

I take it the write protect switch is in the off/disable position on the card since they work in other systems.

 

What is the product number?

NOTE: Do NOT provide the serial number.

 

What brand and model is the SDHC card?

You are using an old version of Hijack This. You are also running HJT from your Temporary Internet Files folder. It will not function properly from there and it cannot create and restore backups from there. You need to create a new folder in My Documents and name it Hijack This. Now Click here to download Hijack This again. Download it and click "Save". Save it to the Hijack This folder you just created. That way it can create and restore backups if needed. HJT will store the backups in the same location that it is run from.

Click on Hijackthis.exe to launch the program. Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log. Click "Save" to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.

Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.

DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Hello rscadden!

This is unpleasant. I hope the following would help you.

1. Type cmd in the Start Menu
2. Select Run as Administrator
3. You should now see the Command Line Utility
4. Type in DISKPART and hit Enter ( here the values associated with your USB drive could be changed)
5. Type LIST DISK and hit Enter
6. Type SELECT DISK and the number of your drive which is write protected and hit Enter
7. Type in ATTRIBUTES DISK and Diskpart gives the information you need about your drive
If the first line is written as Current Read-only State: Yes, then the drive is write protected.
8. To remove the write protection with Diskpart, type the command ATTRIBUTES DISK CLEAR READONLY. If it works, it should be confirmed by the line Disk attributes cleared successfully.

Good luck!

Hi, I have a problem with a brand new USB stick, PNY 64GB I bought on e-bay about two months ago. It started working properly, I transferred on it about 20GB of my photos. I did not notice anything weird. The pictures were there and I think I could even move them on and off, like copying and deleting. After few days, when I wanted to erase them, there was a message that the device is write protected. USB? There is nothing to switch it for write protection like on SD cards, for example.
From that moment, the device once was recognized as inserted in the PC, other times it was not. I could not delete the images, I could not format the device and even the KillDisc software, after running nearly 5 days without a break could not sort this out. There was an error message at 99% of process and I could do nothing else than to skip it, which resulted in the problem persisting on the USB.
Now I cannot even view the files, despite after this treatment I could have seen them few days ago. The files, after I clicked on them, showed mostly unaffected photos in the views, but when I wanted to see any particular photo, all of them appeared to be damaged - there was a grey area on the majority of the photo, just a thin area of the original picture could be seen on the top of the picture.

Hi there,
I would suggest checking the physical memory card for the read/write switch and putting it to the write/unlocked position and try re-formatting the SD card with the actual phone or the phones manager program on your computer as it usually has to be formatted in a specific format and folder setup. - If you choose to format the 32gb sd card with your phone please be careful to format the sd card and not your phones internal memory

Also are the files being properly deleted and then coming back or can you not delete anything off of it?

My SD card was borrowed to take some photos. Because it already had photos on, the user copied them to a pc, then deleted them from the card. Before returning the card, the photos were put back on. I think this may have messed the card up for use in my camera. No matter what I do, I get a message that the card is 'write protected', even though the lock is off. I can view/copy the files that are on the card, so there's no problem about losing photos, but the card no longer works in my camera, and it's a 32gb, which I use (or used to) regularly for videos of bands. My question really is, is the card now scrap? Or can I get it up and running again? It's recognized straight away when I put in the pc.

it has possibly been formatted for a different format than your camera recognises

External 2.5" Seagate Momentus 320Gb HDD.

Recieved from my father-in-law, he says it doesn't work. So I take it and there is no power at all. I take it apart and replace the USB connector and I receive power. However, trying to initialize the disk in computer management windows 7 says "the media is write protected". Computer management labels it as a "CD-ROM", now I don't know if this might be an issue, or it just does that until the disk is initialized. I tried diskpart and modifying 'writeprotect' in the registry but neither worked.

I also loaded up Win XP x64 to try it there, but I received pretty much the same results.

Thanks

A:The media is write-protected

Under Windows 7, launch the registry editor (press Windows Logo + R, type regedit, then press Enter). Navigate then to this registry path:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > System > CurrentControlSet > Control > StorageDevicePoliciesRight click on writeprotect and select modify. Set the value data to 0, then click OK. Do the same with ControlSet001 and ControlSet002. Close the registry editor and restart your system. Try then to access your external storage device.

Hello guys,

This is Ekant this side. I am using Acer Aspire 5742Z from more than a year. However, since last month I am facing a "Write Disk Protected" problem, for which I didn't get a single workable solution. I hope you guys can help me with this.

What my actual problem is:

I have a 500GB hard drive, and I have created three partition namely; C:, D:,and E:

C drive is of 99 GB, D drive is also of 107 GB, E Drive: 285

But last month, when I booted my system, I could only find C Drive, and all other drives were invisible, don't know why, and increased my C Drive Disk Capacity from 99 GB to 465 GB. Then I tried to look for a solution on many forums, and found that find and mount can help me out with my invisible partitions, and I installed it instantly, and it really helped me finding my invisible partitions. However, now I need to run find and mount, every time I start my laptop, to mount my invisible partitions. And if i don't run it, the windows explorer shows on C Drive with a disk capacity of 465 GB.

And to my amazed, soon I discovered that both D Drive and E Drive have become 'Write Disk Protected', and neither I can create and file in any of those drives, and nor I can delete any existing files.

Now when I am trying to format my computer with new copy of windows 7, it doesn't read the DVD, and nor the USB Flash Drive (Both are boot-able as they are tried and tested on another computer).

Hope my issue is clear to all of you... Read more

A:Write Disk Protected

this is why.
Mounting partitions
After Scan finishes, you will see the full list of found partitions. Now, you can add any found partition to the system by mounting and assigning a letter to it.

All partitions are mounted in the read-only mode. You won't be able to alter files on such partitions, but only to copy files off that partition. This guarantees that the data cannot be altered by the operating system or any software (including malware).
if possible remove the laptop hard drive and connect to another Pc via a usb cradle and try format from there,(ntfs) if that works pop it back in the laptop and try installing windows again.
