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

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

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!

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

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

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?

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.

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.

The storage drive (drive I:\) will not let me write to it. I cannot rename, delete, cut, or write any new files to any part of that drive. That's troublesome, since that's where I send all of my downloads to! Even earlier in this session of windows it was working nicely,

Specifically, the error is:

I've tried changing the security settings to allow USERS, or even just Administrators, full control of the drive, to no avail. I cannot modify the security settings. When I try, I get:

Hi to all

I was wondering if anybody can supply me with a solution to this. I have had this problem for a while now when I try to delete large video files, the files still show up in the recycle bin even after I have tried to shred them using Mcafee shredder. I then do a manual deletion with the files that remain in the recycle bin and they disappear but the system hasn't really deleted the files, I know this because I then click empty the recycle bin and the error message "Cannot delete file DC Access denied make sure the disk is not full or write protected and the file is not currently in use" appears. The DC usually has a number With it like DC1 or DC10 sometimes I get DE.

I am getting the occasional error message when I try to move files from one drive to another or delete folders it usually tells me to makesure the files are not being used by another program or they are write protected. I have to reboot before I can get rid off unwanted large or medium size video files. When I cut certain files and paste them into another drive the file doesn't move into the other drive it just copies into it and again I have to reboot for it to disappear or to delete it from the original drive. It is a real pain in the rear!

I have been in touch with Mcafee and Dell about this and no solution has been put forward . Dell want me to cross their palms with cash and Mcafee checked all their software to makesure their Security Center wasn't the blame. So some know... Read more

Several months ago, I accidently dragged and dropped my PSP file into another folder. I went to windows explorer to drag it back out. Some of the files were fine but others were not. I could not view the contents of the files. So I turned on my external hard drive that I use strictly for a back up in case something happened.....I copied the file back on to my computer. Now, there are many files/folders that I cannot open and I cannot delete them. I get an error message saying the file may be write protected, in use or the disk may be full.
I right clicked on the file>properties and uncheck read only file. Still I can't access those folders at all and I can't get rid of them. Can you suggest something else I can do to either view the contents or delete the folders from my hard drive.
Thanks,

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.

I recently started having problems with WinXP. I can't download anything. I get a message:
C:\DOCUME~1\KYLERA~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\sgjden5l.zip could not be saved because you cannot change the contents of that folder
Change the folder properties and try again, or try saving in a different location.

Also, I can't save files in MS Publisher or open any templetes. I get message:
The disk you are trying to write to is write protected. Make the disk read-write or use a different disk.
Lastly, all of the items in my temp folder seem to be locked. I can't delete anything and there is about 200-500 files.
All of this started after uninstalling McAfee antivirus software and trying to get rid of this stupid
#msntb_toolbar_full_name# is unable to load its config file.
If you have recently upgraded to a newer version of the #msntb_toobar_full_name#
and have not restarted your computer since the upgrade, please try restarting
your computer. If the problem persists, please reinstall the #msntb_toolbar_full_name#.

But like I said earlier, I cant go re-download the msn toolbar.

I'm having trouble formatting or copying files to my Kingston pen drive. It says the disk is write protected. I tried registry fixes, diskpart etc. Still no success. Please help.
