Just curious I have a TON of ford navigation sd cards they look like this

I was wanting to use them for other purposes like music/pictures/ etc. Is there anyway to format this thing? I have tried a couple of times but get write protection errors. I should probably just leave it alone but I am stubborn. Any ideas?

Thanks

Slide the white tab on the side of the card and try again.

I slide the tab all over fully forward/ back and in the middle with no luck I also downloaded that program and tried it and when I click format it says "The Memory card is write protected please release the write protect switch"

Worm flash meaning it can only be written to once?

Okay now for my next question. Is there any work around for this worm flash sd card? Or is it a dead end?
I did a google search but came up with nothing.
