Windows 7: Multiple Card Reader *Write Protected* error

23 Apr 2016   #1

Windows 7 Pro 64Bit
Multiple Card Reader *Write Protected* error


so im going crazy...

I Have an Mini SD w/ SD adapter, BRAND NEW, tried to format using PC

I get "Write protected" EVERY TIME

what i have tried

1) From Elevated CMD prompt
(Disk part) ---> (select disk N) ---> (clean) = error (attributes disk clear readonly) = attributes cleared successfully) but not actually cleared

2) From regedit

Had to create QWORD-(64-bit) and rename to WriteProtect with 0 for Hex

3) Uninstalled rebooted AND reinstalled with no success any ideas?

Yes but i know it is not write protected because it is in the "Unlocked Position"
