You might want to go one step further if the above methods aren’t helping you getting the deal. Use Windows Command Prompt to disable write protection in SD card or pen drive.

disable write protection using cmd

Here are the steps:

Connect your write protected SD card to your computer.
Right Click on Start. Click Command Prompt (Admin). Click Yes in the UAC message.
Type diskpart and hit Enter.
Type list disk and hit Enter. Here, you’ll be able to see a list of storage media connected to your computer like your internal hard drive, SSD, pen drive, or SD card via an adapter.
Type select disk <number of your disk>. Example, select disk 1 in my case. Make sure you enter the number correctly and don’t end up changing the attributes of your internal hard drive or any other storage media.
Type attributes disk clear readonly and press Enter.
Type exit and press Enter to get out of the diskpart utility. Type exit and press Enter again to get out of the command line.
Now you’re done with disabling write protection in your pen drive or SD card. Windows will be able to copy files and folders to your SD card.
