The write errors that we find on SD cards are literally a lot of pain and will disturb and distract us from all the things that we are doing and grab our entire attention. We may be picking the good company SD cards and purchase the perfect one, but these issues can be found on any company cards and as many cards have write protection, we cannot be able to format them to get them back.
We thought to bring a proper and easy solution for this he4ad burning problem and here are the steps that you need to go through
- Some cards come with a toggle switch that has the ability to remove the write protection, so check whether your card has one such a toggle or not and if it has your solution is pretty simple, just toggle it and then try inserting it and you will be able to format it
- And the second thing that you should check if your card doesn’t have a toggle switch is by checking the device’s properties. You just head to the Devices and Drivers window on your PC by just searching for devices and drivers on your PC and then right click on your particular card and click on properties where you will find toggle option, if you can’t find the toggle option even here, then head to the next process
- The other troubleshooting step that you can try to get out of this issue is using the command prompt Open command prompt in administrator mode, then type ‘diskpart’ and hit enter, then type ‘list disk’ and you will find the list of disks connected to your device, then note the number of your card by figuring out your card by its size. And then type the command ‘select disk [disk number]’ and hit enter, then type ‘attributes disk clear readonly’ and hit enter to remove clear the write protection
