    Unprotect A Protected Mini SD Card?

    Advertisement



    Anyone know how to do this. There's a 512MB SD card formatted to my Blackberry that I don't use anymore. I want to load pictures onto it so I can use it on a digital picture frame thingee, but my computer won't let me format it and it doesn't fit in my digital camera... any ideas how to unprotect it?

    Put it back into your BB, remove the encryption and delete everything on it, then take it out and format it on the PC.

    That should work.

    Can you reformat it in the BB?

    Thats what I originally did. I plugged it in and had Motorolla and Blackberry folders (all empty) on it and so I put it in the PC... tried formatting it. Still reads Protected. Then tried formatting it on my BB and put it back in... still says Protected. I'm about ready to take it down to Radio Shack and see if they can stick it into one of there camera's to format it for me.

    Radio Shack's selling 1 GB for ten bucks. It's not the SD Mini with the full size adapter, it's just a full size card. I shoulda bought a 2GB for my digital camera... oh well. It's working.

    It doesn't have any kind of physical switch to protect it, like full size SD cards do, does it?
