Does anyone know of a way to remove the write protection on a sd card. It happens when i try and format the card, and i have tried moving the lock switch to both positions. Any help will be appreciated.

The switch on the card doesnt actually do anything to the card,What it does is move a tiny microswitch on your card reader ,some times this can become stuck so just try sliding the card in and out a few times quickly and this may unstick it,

Or as below try another reader ..
Sometimes all you need do is try to format in a diff reader
I try on on my epson printer or another card reader
