    Try formatting it with HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool 2.2.3 http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/...mat-Tool.shtml . (Right click on the HPUSBDisk.exe and run as administrator. Make sure you remove/plug out all other USB drives to prevent accidentally formatting the other drives.)

    Hi there

    Try the following

    1) eject and re-insert card.

    Iif it's in an adapter ensure card is correctly in place and read only switch not enabled (usually a tiny little slider on the adapter --e.g the pny ones).

    2) run cmd in admin mode

    diskpart
    list disk

    then you should see the micro sd card as a disk -- it will probably show as 59 GB for 64GB card or similar

    continue with the command

    select disk n where n is the disk nr

    create partition primary
    format fs=ntfs quick
    active
    assign
    exit

    Then it should be working again.

    Cheers

    Do you tried this?
    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>
    you will see a prompt that the write protect has been removed
    type EXIT press <enter>
