Does it have a little switch on the side?

yes it does but its not on lock?

Can you format it? Other than those two things I am not sure what else you can do.

You may require software from the manufacturer of the card to do a low-level format to by-pass the security error.

TTDS dont have the lock key on the sides do they? Also take Micro SD cards which dont have the lock key on side?

put your card back into computer and copy and paste all games and saved files onto computer before formatting micro sd card

SD to MicroSD converters sometimes have a lock on the side. Not the actual storage card, but the converter card.

Do as Sassie said. Copy from the card to your PC - Format, then copy back again onto the card.

you need to copy everything from card to computer, or just copy games and save files and reload firmware back on, perosnally wouldnt upload 1.6 firmware

omg im scared what if i dont copy right?!??! how am i gonna do it im so basic lol
banned#16
put your micro sd card into adapter, then put into computer and select it, right click on file and copy, then paste to your desktop

Like i said, personally i would just copy the games folder onto computer, and re download firmware after you have formatted the card

As can you do everything or does it asks for a Password if you want to do anything?

This likely to be a problem with the reader ,there is a switch inside the reader that is activated by lock tab on the SD card,This could either be caused by a faulty card adaptor or the reader itself.the best thing to do is to try the card in another reader or if you can try using another MicroSD adaptor,

To explain a bit further,The lock tab on the SD card is not an electrical switch ,It is just a piece of plastic that that is used to push against the actual switch which is inside the card reader,This can sometimes become damaged or if the SD card is poorly manufactured sometimes the lock slider moves when inserting the card,one thing you can also try is placing a small piece of tape over the lock switch,Hope this helps

no i can do anything without password?
#37
Just try it again and this time slide the card in and out of the reader a few times it could just be that the switch is sticking
#39
If Tony G's advice doesn't help and you still cannot format/fix the issue please read my post again (#4).

Good luck.
