Solved!

"write-protected" issue for a SDHC card

HP Recommended

The file in my SDHC card (SanDisk 8GB class 6) can be read with my laptop (Pavilion dv2500). However, when I try to save a file, it show me "The disk is writen-protected." After I switch the card's lock tab, my laptop still show the same warning message.

My sony computer can save a file into the same SDHC card when the lock tab at the "Unlock" position.

Any idea for this issue? Thx

Hello funee,

 

I would try formatting the card on the Pavilion see if that works

The card reader slot is internally a stainless metal housing with a small tab on the side which acts as a switch making contact with another piece of metal depending on the position the card lock piece is in.  Most likely your reader's switch is defective and it might be bent back to make contact again but otherwise it's an advanced soldering repair job that requires special unsoldering solder or a hot air gun to repair (meaning otherwise the whole mainboard needs replaced assuming the card reader is built onto the mainboard instead of a daughterboard.

After pushed the piece of flexible metal in the card reader with my mini screwdriver, the card reader can save and delete the files now.

I think that piece of metal which tests the position of the card lock was blocked by the side of the slot or I should insert my SD card far inside.
