Then follow the instructions in the link I provided you, or format the drive.

And it is Write, not white protected ! :lol:

Start command prompt (Run window)
Type regedit and press enter
Now the registry window will be opened.
Type the following path
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies
just do the Double click on Write Protect Tab and make the value as zero
Exit the registry window

Thank you sir. This is what i did. I first went to the command prompt, typed REGEDIT and pressed enter. I then typed the keys specified after the registry window was opened. I changed the value to 0 and exited. However the card still remains write protected. Thanks for your concern but help me please.

The solutions you have already received should have worked.

Try formating the drive this way:
Right click the drive, format, file system fat32

Did you resolve the write protect issue ? If not, possible you have a defective device. Where did you purchase it and what is the Manufacturer and product name ?
