I get the message “The disk is write-protected“ when copying files or formatting a device. What can be done in such a situation?
Hi @NoelRichardson ,
Have you opened a Support Case? If not opened, for more information, please contact the SD Technical Support team for best assistance and troubleshooting:
Yes, I opened a Suport Case.
But, I have already solved this problem.
I recover my memory card using the command prompt and the Diskpart command using the example described in this article: How to Unlock a Write-Protected USB Drive, Memory Card, or a Hard Disk
If your SD card is write-protected, try unlocking the SD card physical switch, or use the Diskpart command, gpedit.msc, or regedit utility to remove write protection from the SD card. But often, removing write-protection from SD card, makes it susceptible to virus/ malware attacks or corruption, resulting in loss of data. You can refer this article to unlock a write-protected memory card.
