Windows 7: Trouble Wiping an SD Card

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I've seen this issue raised before. In fact I've got a 4gb SD card that remains write protected however I move the tab.
I might try the tape trick when I get around to it, but the real problem is the contact in the reader being out of place. Might be able to bend that back to fix things up. I'll look at that first - if I can even see it with my not-so-good-anymore eyes.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with SP1

Tried covering the notch with tape and that didn't work either.
Time to get another one.

Thanks all for the suggestions!
