Other than what teaser suggested, this might sound really simple but there isn't a write-protection tab enabled on the sd adapter card is there?

is this a micro SD card (max 2GB) ?

or a micro SDHC card (4GB up) ?

if micro SDHC is reader compatible ?

what brand is card ?

they usually come pre-formated why does it need re formatting ? (are their other problems with card)

has this card been used or formatted in a Linux / Unix file system ? if so what format is it ?
