This is one way to delete files from SD card

Put a piece of thin tape over the notched out area on the side of the disc. It has worked for a couple of my discs. I don't know what's up with that notch but it will prevent you from deleting files. If this doesn't work, then it's possible the disc may be bad.

Umm... you realise you can just move the write-protect slider on the side of the card? Which is essentially what you're doing?

Also, SD cards are not discs.

I did slide that, and it still didn't work. So, apparently there's more to it than you have thought.

As far as I'm concerned, an SD card is nothing more than a very small floppy disc. I really don't bother myself with semantics, but if you wish to, have at it.

Saying an SD card is the same as a very small floppy disc is like saying that an eggplant is the same as a very small cow...

Some readers can push the slider back as the card gets inserted.

Hey! thanks for this. I've been tearing my hair out trying to delete a whole bunch of files from my SD card without success but the tape trick worked a treat.

Thanks again.
