    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:
    ________________________

    DISKPART> list disk

    Disk ### Status Size Free Dyn Gpt
    -------- ------------- ------- ------- --- ---
    Disk 0 Online 298 GB 0 B
    Disk 1 No Media 0 B 0 B
    Disk 2 No Media 0 B 0 B
    Disk 3 Online 58 GB 0 B

    DISKPART> select disk 3

    Disk 3 is now the selected disk.

    DISKPART> attributes disk
    Current Read-only State : Yes
    Read-only : No
    Boot Disk : No
    Pagefile Disk : No
    Hibernation File Disk : No
    Crashdump Disk : No
    Clustered Disk : No

    DISKPART> attributes disk clear readonly

    Disk attributes cleared successfully.

    DISKPART> attributes disk
    Current Read-only State : Yes
    Read-only : No
    Boot Disk : No
    Pagefile Disk : No
    Hibernation File Disk : No
    Crashdump Disk : No
    Clustered Disk : No

    ________________________

    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

    What OS are you using? Have you tried doing a reformat in Computer Management/Disk management?

    Don't bin it post it to me and I'll have a play.
    I'll send it back if I fix it.
