Memory card slot giving write protection sign. sd card not the problem

I recently purchased a Samsung N510 netbook. problem is is that I have micro sd cards, and I put them in the Memory Card slot converter. I have a portable usb and memory card slot, and they all work fine on the netbook. I can not understand why when I place any of these memory cards in the normal slot of the netbook itself, i cant transfer file to or from it because it says its write protected. Bizarre!!..would love to know what to do. hope someone can help..would be very gratful :)

    so the scenario is, you have micro sd card, you put the micro SD card into the micro SD adapter and put it on your USB card reader and it works fine, however, when you plugin the micro SD card adapter directly into its built in slot, it shows write protected? Are you using same SD card adapter for all the micro SD? did you try a different SD card adapter?

SOURCE: Micro sdhc card reader will not recognize 8gig card

You problem is most likely to be the fact that your micro chip is a HC chip. HC chips have a new program that is not backwards compatible to regular sd host ports. This is a simple fix, however. If you don't trust downloading programs for it on the internet, just go to target or walmart and get a USB SD card reader, and a SD adapter if you don't already have one. The usb adapter should only be like $10 at most.

Pny sdhc card protected


Mini SD cards, or MicroSD cards, are used in digital cameras and portable media players to house digital media files.

MicroSD cards can house anything from 2GB to 32GB of information.
A write-protection feature gives the owner the ability to lock the MicroSD card to keep their files secure.

If you have a MicroSD card that is write-protected, you can un-write-protect it with a flip of a switch.
Insert your MicroSD card into the adapter that came with it.
Put the data side of the MicroSD card into the data side of the adapter.


Look for the write-protection switch on the left side of the SD adapter.
Flip the switch to the side that reads "Off."


Remove the MicroSD card from the adapter and replace it in the device you were using it with.

or you might

Feel along the lower right and left sides of the Micro SD card to find out if it has a built in write protection switch.

Move the switch over to the "On" position to turn on the write protection feature.
Check the front ports on your computer and see if it already has a built in card reading unit.

Purchase an external card reader that plugs into a USB port if your computer does not already have an internal card reader (see below).

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=card+reader&x=0&y=0

Plug the card reader into any open USB port on the computer.
Power on the computer and let the operating system finish loading.

Insert the card into the Micro SD slot on the card reader.
Wait for a new window to appear that will ask what action you want to take with the Micro SD card.

Click on the link that says "Open a folder to view files."
Right-click on a file if there is just one specific file you want to enable write protection for.

Click on the "Properties" link from the menu that will pop up.
Navigate to the "General" tab.

Click on the box marked as "Read Only" and then close the Properties window.
Close the window and then double-click on the "My Computer" icon on your desktop if you want to enable write protection for every file on the Micro SD card.

Right-click on the name of your Micro SD card in the list of computer drives.
Click on "OK" and then close the window.


Click on "Properties" and then navigate to the "Security" tab. Scroll down to the heading labeled as "Permissions."

Click on "Deny" under the "Write" section.

Welcome to Fixya.

You might have bought the Micro SD Card. Your camcorder's memory stick is either a SD Card (the standard size, not the Micro) or a MMC Card. See pictures below:

You can purchase it at a great deal on Amazon. Click the link below to take a look.

Where can I insert my mini sandisk memorycard into my toshiba laptop? I see no slots for it.


If you have no SD slot on your laptop, you will have to buy an external USB SD reader. They typically cost $5-$10, and are readily available online (e.g. http://www.buy.com/prod/micro-sd-sdhc-card-usb-reader-for-1gb-2gb-4gb-8gb/q/sellerid/23962916/loc/101/213271933.html) or in almost any store with a good selection of electronics.

Cannot install 4GB card into TL220. Do I have the


According to Samsung's page on this camera, the following memory can be used:

External Memory(Optional) : Micro SD (up to 4GB)
Micro SDHC (up to 8GB)

4 GB is acceptable, but I think you do not have the correct type of card. You should be using a Micro SD or "Micro Secure Digital" (up to 4GB capacity) or a Micro SDHC or "Micro Secure Digital High Capacity" (up to 8 GB capacity) card. This is very different from an SD or SDHC card. These Micro cards are very small (smaller than your thumbnail) and are often packaged with an SD adapter card. Regardless if sold with or with out the adapter, the package should say Micro SD or Micro SDHC on it somewhere.

Adding mory memory


Hey,

it seems like the phone does not have a memory card slot, you can confirm it by looking it over and see if theres a slot where a micro sd card would fit into.

if you don't find one, it doesn't have one.

Thanks,
Ekse
