To my knowledge, I do not believe you can turn off write protection without the slide. My suggestion would be to attempt to physically turn it off with the use of a good old fashioned magnifying glass and an eye glass screwdriver- if possible. Unless anyone knows anything different, that may be your only course of action.

On the kingston adapter that I have, it looks like a label on the top side. If yours is the same, try pealing it off to expose what's underneath. It should expose the slide switch mechanism. I believe in protect mode the switch is breaking the contact on one of the lines.

OR you could try this...

Only $1.25 shipped... if your in the US.
