Windows 10 Mounts SD Card as Read Only



  • That pretty much sums up the problem. If I put an SD card into my Windows 10 laptop, it reads the card just fine, but I can't delete anything from it and it seems to sometimes have reading issues, as well, but that I am not positive about. I can't seem to find where or why it is blocking me from making changes to it. Anyone know where to start looking?

    This may sound stupid, but did you check the hardware switch? On the top left side of the card?



  • Do a check disk on it as well. It might have errors and windows might have mounted it read only for safety.
