    Default SD Card Write Protected?

    Was trying to use one of my SanDisk Ultra II SD card to save some files but it keeps on saying that its 'Write Protected'. I have pushed the switch on the card itself to 'unlock', formatted the card but still it says 'write protected'.

    Any idea why? Thanks in Advance!

    You have another card reader to test? It could be problems on that.

    Else, it could be that the micro-switch in you device (card reader) is stucked. Try using another card, if your device still reads "write protected" it's the device problem.
