    I have Win7. 64 Bit and a Micro SD Card 64 GB in Size and I do not know how it became Write Protected.

    So I Run CMD as ADMIN.

    I Type
    diskpart and then Hit Enter.
    Then I Type
    List Disk and a list of all my Drives comes up.

    Then I Type
    select disk 1
    because this is my Micro SD Card.

    I Hit Enter and then Type
    attributes disk clear readonly
    I Hit Enter and it tells me it removed it succesfully.

    So I go into my Explorer screen and Right Click on this Drive and pick Format.
    And it tells me it is Write Protected.

    Can anybody help?
    Thanks for the Time.

    Are you sure that the Micro SD Card was disk 1 and not a different disk number?

    Edit: Check to make sure that there is not a lock switch that needs to be moved.

    Yes it is the only Disk in the List that is 64GB.

    And I put a lot of my other 64 GB Micro SD Cards in and they all say they are Write Protected as well.

    But I never did this to any of my Cards.

    So I got out my USB Stick and I was able to Read and Write to it.

    So I put my Micro SD Card into a USB Flash Drive and it does not work.

    And if I put my Micro SD Card Right into my PCs Slot they do not work.

    I do not think every Card I have is Damaged or Write Protected.

    Take another look at Rusty's post. My guess is that you put your micro SD card in an adapter so that you could insert it into your computer. Check that Lock switch that Rusty pointed out.

    Glad you got it sorted. I have one that every time I insert it into my PDA it locks.

    Any time.
