This is a common problem. I use HP Express and Olympics Master. With both of those programs, I just pressed continue for every picture, and then I got all the pictures with no problems! If you have 250 pictures with write-protect on them, you will have to press "continue" 250 times! But this is the only way I figured out to get the pictures without dumping them or the card. Other "experts" said this from Google and http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/view_topic.php?id=99036&forum_id=22

I had a similar problem... I tried to put some songs onto my Memory Card/SD card, but it wouldn't let me and told me to remove write protection. Turns out I just had the lock switch turned on on my SD card. I unlocked it and they worked instantly.
Looking at the SD card with the label facing you, and the 'cut off corner' to the top. There is a tiny slider on the left-hand edge of the card. Move the slider down to apply write-protection - and up to remove it.

I have heard that there is a tiny switch next to it. Or you Format it and it will delete everything on it.
I too faced this problem, I did some R & D found that the card reader is a culprit. I tried to copy files with different card reader it did not give any such message of write protection. So, you can also give a try with fresh card reader. Hope it solves your problem of write protection. Cheers Telugu bidda
Micro SD cards do not typically have physical "write protection." That is reserved for the full-sized cards which have a switch along the side.If the file system on the SD card is write protected, you would remove that write protection with a computer in the same way you would de-protect any file system. It usually requires root or administrator access.
Its very simple...You just have to unlock the write protection mode of card reader which you are using for your SD card.
There is a hardware protection on the card itself. It's a little slider on the side. One way is protected, the other is not. Typically, having the slider up, towards the contact side of the card, is unprotected.
Push the little slider on the side toward the contact end of the chip.
