Windows 7: SD Card Write Protection is enabled - Lock slider not set.

SD Card Write Protection is enabled - Lock slider not set.

As the title says, I can't write to my SD card because it has write protection enabled, even though I did not enable it.

It just suddenly happened. The lock slider is not set to lock. I've tried some methods around the net but none of them worked.

Some people have suggested this :

If the card does not have a write protect tab, then it is probably a software issue. Try this:

open Regedit and navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies
If there is a WriteProtect key (REG_DWORD) then
1 = Write Protect On
0 = Write Protect Off

If there is a 1, then change the 1 to 0 to disable write protection.
However it seems my system does not have a "StorageDevicePolicies" entry in the registry. I can get down to "Control" before hitting a brick wall on that method.

Thanks in advance.

Nevermind, it appears that there's physical damage to the card reader. The casing around the reader has cracked up and stuff.

Just another repair I'll have to get done in the states when I return.
