SD Card Reader says "read-only" and/or it's "write-protected". I can't even format, tried 5 disks.

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I think I summarized the problem in the subject line. I've been trying for a year to get my SD reader to "read". It always gives me the message "the disk is write protected". I've tried small and large SD's, of all varieties. I've tried suggested fixes on the net. Nothing. It's always: the disk is write-protected. And yes, I have the slide on the disk to the unlock position. Thanks for your help. I need HELP.
