Welcome to Tom's Hardware!

Is there a small tab that can be moved a little bit to unlock the card?

If the card does not have a write protect tab, then it is probably a software issue. Try this:

open Regedit and navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies
If there is a WriteProtect key (REG_DWORD) then
1 = Write Protect On
0 = Write Protect Off

If there is a 1, then change the 1 to 0 to disable write protection.
