I think you right click on it and 'format' ?
I've never come across it myself though.

well, you wouldn't believe it - i've sorted it! I came across this http://www.sanbaldo.com/wordpress/bad-interface/sd-card-reader-disk-is-write-protected/
tried everyting they said but still wasn't working. Read the replies on hotuk and triad to format the disk via computer rather than camera. It still said it was write protected, so i put the sticky tape on the side (as mentioned in the link above) and it worked! Finally - hope this helps someone

Hi-tech stuff eh. That's what you had to do with old cassette tapes!!

yes a common problem with HP pcs for the last couple of years now.
stickey tape always does the trick
