Although Micro SD cards are primarily used to store photos or video files from digital cameras, they can also be used to store any other type of data such as word documents or executable files. If multiple people have access to your Micro SD card, enabling the write protection feature will ensure that the data currently saved on the card cannot be modified or deleted in any way without first having the feature turned off.

             I have a micro sd from my nokia phone and i want to put songs from my pc into micro sd. But as i am trying to copy, it says that my micro sd has a write protect enable. As i figured it out it has no switch to select for enable and disable. So i tried these simple steps and voila it works.

1. To disable write protection [so that you can copy mp3 songs from pc to micro sd]


             Right-click on a file if there is just one specific file you want to disable write protection for. Or right click on a folder if you wan to disable all its content. Click on the "Properties" link from the menu that will pop up. Navigate to the "General" tab. Click or Unchecked on the box marked as "Read Only" and then close the Properties window.

2. To enable write protection [so that you can't copy files from pc to micro sd]

            Right-click on a file if there is just one specific file you want to enable write protection for. Or right click on a folder if you wan to enable all its content. Click on the "Properties" link from the menu that will pop up. Navigate to the "General" tab. Click or checked on the box marked as "Read Only" and then close the Properties window.

Note: If the file is read only you can't put anything on it. Be sure that read only checked box is unchecked, so that you put anything in your micro sd.

    but if you have a virus in the PC, no matter if your files are 'read only', the virus can modify that status and infect that file.
    i usually go to internet-cafes/cybercafes and viruses are everywhere, I always come home with an infected usb , but when I use the old SD memory cards that have the 'lock' switch, i don't have to worry about viruses.
