    I have some video's that I took a while ago and it was either taken on a phone or a camera stored on the S D card and then transfered to my computer. Now when I try to transfer those video's back from my computer to abother S D card a pop up comes up and says that this Disk is write protected and I have to take it off in order to move. I have no clue to what that is or why and hope someone can tell me how or what I can do ?

    Look for a small switch on the side of the card and turn the write-protection off.

    Are you talking about the switch that says lock on the Micro SD card?

    Thanks I though that was so the little card would stay inside. How simple. Thanks again!

    You can mark your own threads "solved" using the button above.

    I just found out about those little switches myself even though I've used those cards for a long time. Just never looked, I guess.

    You could have copied the files, anyway. Just not moved them. It's a better idea to copy, anyway, so that if the process is interrupted, you don't lose the video. Delete the original after you know the copy is good.

    But that switch is handy to prevent things from being erased accidentally.
