    Welcome to TechSpot jprime777 :)

    there should be a small tab on the left side of the card. if the tab is in the "down" position then the card is write-protected. slide it to the "up" position to make the card writable again.

    cheers :wave:

    turn off the write protection by moving the tab on the card. If it is software locked, right click on it in my computer and remove the protection there under properties.
