Cannot format/erase/add to SD card

I am having problems with my 512MB SD card.

I can read the pictures I have already taken using my card reader on the PC, but I cannot add pictures to it using my camera, nor delete photos on the computer nor format the card.

The Windows error says its write protected, but I have done nothing to make it write protected.

I have tried sliding the "lock" switch both ways, but the same thing happens.

Any ideas how to format this card?

All the operations you mentioned should only be carried out in the camera.Any computer tpe operation other then coying could corrupt it
However you should be able to format it in the camera as is.
If you are having difficulty take it to a good photodealer such as Jessops who may the facility to unlock it and format it.
