    Great, try this on that computer, because i am sure this working on Windows 7
    Open a command prompt AS ADMIN
    type DISKPART press <enter>
    type LIST VOLUME press <enter>
    type SELECT VOLUME X, where X is the volume number you want to remove the write protect from.
    type ATTRIBUTES DISK CLEAR READONLY press <enter>
    type CLEAN press <enter>
    type CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY press <enter>
    type FORMAT FS=FAT32 press <enter>
    Good luck!

    If your Micro SD card is an adapter (Micro SD to SD) make sure the write protect switch on the adapter is not in read only position.

    Just to be clear, are you saying you can plug the micro-SD card directly into your card reader? If not, and you use one of these...

    ...be aware it has its own separate 'write-protect' slider.

    Its saying this error:

    Attachment 133722
    (As Jimbo suggested), if that didn't work and you get this write-protect error, (read only in diskpart) even though the thing is not physically write protected, then the card has failed. You can still get your data off it (usually), but it is toast, and you might as well throw it out and get a new one. I just went through this with a MicroSDHC a few days ago. There is nothing you can do - it is dead.

    Your card is dead. When the bad sectors are mapped to the reserved sectors and no more reserved sectors are available to take in further bad sectors generated, the card turns into write-protected. Nothing can be done. The card is dead.
