Preferred Solution: write protected card

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.)

A: write protected card

Are you sure your memory card isn't write protected ?

Have a look at this SmartMedia card.



You will see a little circle in the right center of the card, this is the write-protect area.

To make a SmartMedia memory card read only place a write-protect adhesive seal over the circle. Removing the write-protect adhesive seal will make the card like it was before so you can place data or your photos back on 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.
 

A:Write Protected SD card

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

computers will recognise different formats
see if you can format the card in a computer to fat not fat 32 and then put in camera and format again in the camera

make sure you have copied off any pictures you want to keep first

Hi All
I have a problem with an 1G XD card that was being used to upload photos to a website on a public PC.
For some reason the card is now write protected and cannot shoot any photos or delete.
Has anyone come across this problem or has the card gone bad
 

A:XD card write protected?

For starters make sure your write protection switch is not set on lock. It is on the left side of the card.

If your card doesn’t have a write protection switch or it is unlocked, right click on one of your images in Windows Explorer or My Computer. Select properties and make sure “Read only” hasn’t somehow been checked. If it has clear the box and Select all. Right click on one of the highlighted images and check “Archive”. When you Apply and OK you should have all of the images back to archive.

I have a Huawei Ascend android phone with a 1g SD card. I have been trying to change to a 8g card as the 1g one is full.

I purchased a Kingston SD card from ebay, but when I tried to use it I got a message that the card was 'write protected'.
I flicked the lock switch on the adapter, the problem remained.

I have an old laptop with an SD card slot, I copied the files from the 1g card to my laptop. I could access the 8g card, but not format it or save files on it. My desktop could not even find the card. My phone obviously couldn't move any files to the micro SD card.

I got a replacement card from the same ebay seller, but that one also didn't write. The seller said the problem must be at my end, but I can't believe all my devices are faulty I sent both cards back and purchased a Sony 8g SD card from Carphone Warehouse today. This card is also 'write protected' and the same problems are there.

I'm a bit stumped as to what to do next. I assumed that my SD card reader on the laptop was broken, but it read the 1g card just fine.

Can anyone help me, bearing in mind I am at the limit of my computer knowledge here!
Thank you in advance

I am trying to put songs onto my mobile pone card, it has one of those micro SD adapters that you put the card into with the lock switch on the side.

When i plug it into the card reading slot and try to put songs onto it is says: This card is write protected. Before I put the card in is switch the lock to the forward position, unlocked. but it seems putting the card in atomatically flicks the switch to lock.....Am I missing something?
 

A:Card read, disk, 'write protected'

I'm pretty sure that the card reader is not flicking the switch. I just put the card out of my camera into my cardreader and it tells me the same thing with the switch in either position. I could read and write on this card before installing Vista and can still read and write on it when it is in the camera. But Vista keeps telling me the card is locked with no write permission. I guess this must be a setting I have not found yet

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.

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.

Hi all!

I joined this forum the other day because I found it useful in trouble shooting problems that I had when restoring my households 3 computers that were rootkit controlled.

Anyway, wanted to say thanks in general, because info I used to help me was all through these forums.

So I cured one of my problems myself, when no matter where I looked on the web there was no solution.

My old pavilion has a SD reader that suddenly was calling EVERY sd card write protected. Well, I made sure the locking switch was NOT on write protect, yet no matter what SD card I used, it always said this.

Long story short, after not finding ANY solution that worked on the web, I decided right before I was about to give up, to take an air compressor and blow the crap out of the slot...

It worked! Must have been some dust or something in the right place at the wrong time, but blowing out the slot cleared it up and it works like new.

cheers!

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! Just bought myself a new computer, a Acer Aspire 7730. It came with Vista Home installed, and merely everything was blocked. UAC, firewall, but worst of all I could not change the permissions for the folders on the computer! All new folders I made became write-protected as default and when I changed, it went back to it`s default state the same instant I pressed "OK". Tried "everything" including bringing out the hidden administrator account and using this. Formated the drive and installed Windows7 Ultimate, but the same godamn problem persists! I can`t even save while playing games because all the folders are write protected

Any tips how to stop this?
 

A:All new folders become write protected!

If by permissions you mean the Read Only attribute, you can't change it from the GUI. The folder being set Read Only won't prevent you from saving files into those folders, unless the program you are running is actually honoring the Read Only attribute.
You cannot view or change the Read-only or the System attributes of folders in Windows Server 2003, in Windows XP, in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

It's more likely a NTFS permissions problem due to the games not being properly designed for Vista/Win 7, and are trying to save files in the Program Files folder, which is now a protected location.
I'm not a Gamer, so won't be much help with any specific game. If the game allows it, make sure you are saving into a folder in your Documents folder, and not in to the Program's folder

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.
