When I got my phone I got it for the mp3 player. What I didn't know is that they expected me to buy a $30 connector cable. I tried to be the smart consumer and just bought a Micro SD card with an adapter. I plugged that bad boy into my computer only to find out that it was write protected. I figured out the painfully obvious way to unlock it.

Step 1: Adapter

The adapter is the size of a normal SD. Plug the micro into the bottom.

<p>Make sure that your micro sd card is not locked!!! </p><p>I looked everywhere for a solution, nothing worked until I realized I had flipped the little lock on the side of the adapter thinking that it was there so the little chip wouldn't fall out...it locks it into write protect mode...DOH!!!</p><p>LMAO!! </p>
<p>Sir I created an account just so I could say thank you for letting me know how dumb I was. I did the exact same thing.........*sigh*</p>
<p>Thanks it worked Fine</p><p>For SD Card</p>
<p>So I read through all these options and quite frankly none of them worked. So as a last resort I tried a LLF (with HDD Low Level Format Tool Free) and it worked. After that I formatted it again with regular windows format and problem solved. Hope it works for you. Notice!! Low Level format should be the last option on your list. YOU MUST NOT INTERRUPT THE PROCESS. IT NEEDS TO FINISH.</p>
<p>I got a 32gb gift SD micro card. The micro card worked in a phone, but would not be written in a computer with the adapter. I suspected the adapter and tried all recommendations but the one that worked was blowing into the adapter with an air can. Second time.</p>
<p>The adapter that came with my micro sd card write protects the card. Luckily, I had another adapter so I put the sd in that and all was solved. So easy fix, try an alternate adapter before trying anything else.</p>
<p>Well, after finally getting a hold of Nintendo, and being told I can downoad the stuff I purchased, on my NEW 3DS XL, in 5 days, I tried the memory card I got. It is a sandisk, 64 gig. It says it can not recognize it. I put the 4gig one in, that came with the system. Works right away. I looked on Nintendos site, I see 32 gig as the largest they have as working. Is that correct?</p>

<p>After reading this, I decided that I had to clarify some of those commentaries. There is a saying that goes like this: &quot;Little knowledge is worse than not knowledge&quot;. When you do not know the usage of a button, it is better to shut up than to invent one for it. The lock on the adapter is to <em>lock it against &quot;unintended writing/deleting&quot; </em>- THAT IS NOT TO LOCK IT PHYSICALLY INTO PLACE. It will not get lose, so you DO NOT NEED hope it stays. <strong>It will stay</strong>. The adapter was made for that use. One more thing, what kind of voodoo is this &quot;blow into the adapter&quot;? What are the magical words you have to say after that. Real non-sense.</p><p>The micro SD has no protection against writing/deleting on its own, the ONLY WAY to achieve that is when it is inserted in the adapter and the lock is activated. So make sure that you do not accidentally delete your files when using the micro SD alone in the player/camera or else. Hope it is understood now.</p>
<p>BRAVO....you are correct !!!!</p>
