Including a brand new out of the box SD card...is my card reader at fault or something else amiss ?

Ok, just checked another card, and thats OK, so its not the card reader..perhaps the folders & files (music) Im trying to copy to the cards are set incorrectly ?

Nope, cant even format the cards, even the brand new one, as I get the error msg telling me thy are write protected !!

Doing my head in now !!

Just googled the problem and some people suggest putting some sticky tape over the little switch on the SD card.Link

Yeah, just did the same myself whilst waiting for a reply :D. Strange the new out of the box card was the same though !!

Sorted !!

It's not the card it's the reader
