Write protection of smart card

Q: Write protection of smart card

I have had a problem getting a SanDisk SD 64 meg card back in action after deleting a bunch of files on it. I use it only for image work, and read it in a SanDiak 6 in 1 reader, which works fine with other cards - in the same slot. My system tells me it is write protected, and I cannot even re-format it.

I spent severl hours searching through two XP books and on the machine trying to get anything on write protection, and how to cancel it. I have no idea how it happened, as all I did was delete image files (jpg's).

Any help will be appreciated, as I really want to put this disk back in action, not that I have a new digital camera. How to I return this disk to writable status?

Preferred Solution: Write protection of smart 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 protection of smart card

The SD card will likely have a small sliding "write protect switch" on it.

Is this in the correct position?

That pesky SD Card (Philips 64GB, a few months old) problem with not letting you remove the write protection...

I've done the Storage Device Policies in the registry with no joy and here is the CMD log from where I've tried to clear the readonly attributes in diskpart:
________________________

I've tried this umpteen times and changed 'Read-only : Yes' to No, but that top line 'Current Read-only State' only ever shows 'Yes'.

Of course I've tried the physical switch and the tape trick over the notch... anyone got any other ideas before I throw the card away?

Many thanks

I just purchased a microSD card for my phone. When I went in to copy data from my old card to the new card, a message was displayed that read:

The disk is write-protected. Remove the write-protection or use another disk.

I went into the registry to see if I could fix this via a registry key, and that did not work.

So how can I fix this? Any thoughts? It is a SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-1 card. It is a 200 GB Class 10 card.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

I just replaced my HP printer with an Epson Artisan 835, but now I can't edit my SD card (out of my Kodak camera) while inserted into the printers SD card slot. I can't rename the pictures or do any editing like cropping, brightness, etc. I used to be able to do these edits with this same SD card within the HP printer, so I don't know if it's an Epson printer issue or some type other issue. I get an error message that says that "The disk is write protected. Remove the write protection or use new disk." SO........I checked the switch on the side and made sure it was in the "up" position and not locked. Still got the same write protection error message, though. I used the switch in each position and none made any difference..........

Any suggestions?
 

A:Solved: Cannot Remove Write Protection on SD Card

The write protection is within the reader itself. The tab on the card makes contact inside the reader. Make sure the tab is not loose. Try it with the tab moved just slightly off the lock position.

Now, I don't know if the reader is at fault, or Epson doesn't allow writes to the card while in the printer. Check all the preferences in the printer software, for anything related to Read/Write.

Can you Print from the card?
Can you copy these files to a folder on your hard drive?

That is the usual way of processing images. You don't want to edit your only copy of an image.(no backup)

Get a second card and try it.

Sometimes, you will come across a USB pen drive or an SD Card that simply does not let you write any new content onto it. Windows will tell you that the storage device is write protected even though you have not done anything to make it so. There is a switch that does make a drive write protected and for those who didn’t know about this, this is what you need to do.
The Switch
The switch as we’ve mentioned locks the drive such that one cannot carry out any write actions on it. You can still read the files on the drive however. This switch when set to locked, will keep the files on the drive safe from deletion and an accidental format. At times, you might be able to hit the delete operation, but the next time you check, the files will still be there. In some cases, the storage device might be actually broken physically or corrupted and in those cases, nothing can be done, however, in any other case, there are ways around the problem.

Regedit.exe is the executable software you will need for this and it runs on any version of Windows XP or later. Just type regedit in the search bar of the start menu and it should appear right at the top as the first option. It looks a lot like the File Explorer and therefore, you can use the left pane and navigate to “Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies “. Once there, double click on the WriteProtect value. Now, you can change the... Read more

Hi SevenForums,
I just bought a brand new Verbatim SDHC 8GB SD card, but whenever I try to extract files to it, it will say disk is write protected. I have tried locking it, unlocking it, but nothing seems to be working. I am using a Kodak 50-IN-1 Card Reader to use the SD card with my computer. Could it be the card reader?

A:How Do I Disable Write Protection on My 8GB SDHC Verbatim SD Card?

Return the card to the vendor and get a replacement. I would think that your card is in the locked position and the slider switch is defective.

As the title says, I can't write to my SD card because it has write protection enabled, even though I did not enable it.

It just suddenly happened. The lock slider is not set to lock. I've tried some methods around the net but none of them worked.

Some people have suggested this :

If the card does not have a write protect tab, then it is probably a software issue. Try this:

open Regedit and navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies
If there is a WriteProtect key (REG_DWORD) then
1 = Write Protect On
0 = Write Protect Off

If there is a 1, then change the 1 to 0 to disable write protection.


However it seems my system does not have a "StorageDevicePolicies" entry in the registry. I can get down to "Control" before hitting a brick wall on that method.

Thanks in advance.

Nevermind, it appears that there's physical damage to the card reader. The casing around the reader has cracked up and stuff.

Have tried all the standard procedures using a SD formatter program and all the various Dos commands via Attributes and Diskpart etc without success.

I have followed this thread " http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/7710dab8-863a-44d0-93ad-dfe93aa3af2a/unable-to-writedelete-data-on-external-usb-disk-in-windows-7"

Having checked for "Computer Configuration -> Administrative

My 'Microsoft Manage Console' gives no listing of 'Removable Storage' in Remove/Add Snap view. 
So in 'Group Policy Edit' to change the 'Removal Disk' settings to Disabled is not seen.
"Removable Disks: Deny execute access

Double-click each one and select the 'Disabled'

What have I done wrong.

A:Unable to remove 'read only' or 'write protection' in micro SD card.

Since other removable devices are working fine, group policy-like setting is not in use. And if you are using a microSD to SD card adapter, make sure the lock switch is not enabled; also make usre the lock switch does not enable automatically when you insert
it to the card reader (loose switches tend to show this behaviour).
If none of these suggestions able to solve the issue, take it to the nearest service center of the microSD card manufacturer and report the issue. The card will be replaced with a new one, since these memory devices carry a lifetime warranty. Refer the manufacturer
support terms and conditions about warranty claims for more information.Balaji Kundalam

Basically I want to be able to whack a load of files on there that are going to someone else, and then write protect it to make sure the contents can be altered or added to later. Is this possible?

Several months ago, I burned 4 ISO images onto DVD's with a program called PowerISO PowerISO - Create, Burn, Mount, Edit, Compress, Encrypt, Split, Extract ISO file, ISO/BIN converter, Virtual Drive. Upon my discoveries recently, I realized the sizes of the ISO images were intended to be burned on CD's, not DVD's. I investigated if I could format them, but two problems have showed up in discovery:

1.) When I attempt to format the DVD's, I get a message saying that I can't because they are write-protected.

2.) The DVD's are DVD-R's, a format of DVD that cannot be rewritten.

I have looked online to see if there were any forums on how to remove write-protection on DVD-R's and so far, the only forums I've seen were how to remove it on the specific storage format or OS was that it can be only be possible is if I do it before I burn the files onto the disc.

Even though I used DVD-R's, the write-protection message only appears on the DVD's that I burned the image files onto via PowerISO, regardless of using DVD-R's and not DVD-RW's (a format of DVD that can be rewritten.)

From my knowledge, it appears that I can format DVD-R's that did not have image files burned via PowerISO. Therefore, it has to be related to the image files.

If anybody knows how I can remove the write protection off of the DVD-R's with the files extracted from the image file so I can format them, that would be of great help. Otherwise, I just wasted 18.8 GB of removable storage.

If you are using a micro SD card it has no write protection I know of. Maybe Verizon markets a special card but that doesn’t seem likely.

If you have to put the micro SD card in an adapter to put it in your card reader the adapter has a little switch on the upper left edge that write protects the inserted card. A regular SD card has the same switch in the same place. Moving it up turns off write protection.

Copy the files off the CD into a temp directory on your hard drive.
Erase the CD-R[W] media. Write the files back onto the CD-R[W] media
but this time do NOT finalize the session so you can add subsequent
sessions to mark files as deleted (the TOC in the new session marks the
old file as deleted but that doesn't physically remove the file but
instead just removes access to it).

If you want the CD-RW (must be writable) to act like a big floppy, you
need to get CD burning software that supports UDF (universal data
format) packet writing, like InCD from Nero or DirectCD from Easy CD
