Vista and Canon G9 say write protected card

I am trying to format my card and I keep getting messages that it is write protected.

 

The little swtich on the side is set to unlocked...  any suggestions?

 

many thanks,

Are you trying to format through the camera or through the PC. Some cameras allow you to write protect certain files on the card or even the card itself. Try formatting the card through your PC and see if it allows you.

If two devices (the Canon G9 and the card reader) say the card is write protected, and the lock switch is not engaged, then I think you have no choice but contact SanDisk Tech Support and get it replaced under warranty.
