CompactFlash Card - Get rid of Read-Only
Posted on 2004-11-27
I have a 16MB CompactFlash card that I use with my digital camera. I reformatted the card on my Windows XP machine to FAT. When I put the card in the camera, it says it's not recognized. And then when I put the card in my PC to access it, it says it is copy-protected. I'm guessing I should have formatted the card on the camera rather than my PC because of different storage architecture. But since I did format it on my PC, it made it read-only and I can't do anything with it now. How do I make it so the card is not read-only? Then I should be able to put it in my camera and format it on that.
