How Do I Disable Write Protection on My 8GB SDHC Verbatim SD Card?

Hi SevenForums,
I just bought a brand new Verbatim SDHC 8GB SD card, but whenever I try to extract files to it, it will say disk is write protected. I have tried locking it, unlocking it, but nothing seems to be working. I am using a Kodak 50-IN-1 Card Reader to use the SD card with my computer. Could it be the card reader?

Return the card to the vendor and get a replacement. I would think that your card is in the locked position and the slider switch is defective.

Thanks, but it turns out that our card reader was way too old! But it could have been the SD card too.

Did you replace the card, the card reader or both???????

( I still find the card reader on sale at amazon.com)
