Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

Most SD memory cards have a tiny switch on one side which, when reversed, allow data to be saved. Flip it back afterwards to prevent accidental overwriting.

If this happens on more than one card or stick in your system, you may need a Registry fix so please post back if you need to.
