    I think u need to create the save folder for loadiine. I can't recall the folder name off the top of my head, but I'm thinking it's a single letter.

    If it says sd protected from writing, maybe is the little tab on the sd card. It has a switch lock that can write protect sd cards. Maybe that is the cause? Sometimes inserting sd cards into sd slot moves that tab from the position that locks it.:unsure:

    yes, it should be a white switch with "locked" written on the sd card for when it's in a locked position.

    I'm afraid I've never encountered this issue with loadiine, but I've also never used loadiine much either. I do know that it saves to folder with a shortened name which is y I"m thinking it's just one letter long. updates can overwrite files with the game, but dlc and saves r separated into two distinct folders from what I remember.

    When exactly does it say your SD is write protected? When you try to copy the game to the SD card?

    It says: The SD card is write-protected.
    If you want to copy or transfer data, unprotect it

    For example, in Terraria, I create the character and then appears the message

    The read write tab is one of the first things to go on a failing sd card, it can break even if in the right position... try to flick the tab down and up, might...MIGHT....fix it. If not then it's probably on its way out...

    You should find one then as loadiine is terrible many games are near unplayable like Zelda BOTW which has terrible load times as does super Mario 3d world and many more plus no online ect.

    so essentially my problem. Good to know that I wasn't the only one experiencing nonsense. (my issue is slightly different) I have a sd card reader (which is a sd card port to usb) I throw in my sd card. And then its said its write protected. When I never even touched the lock. So essentially I can't get it to work as a usb. the sd card itself is fine. Just the reader is the problem. Even though the reader itself has no lock.

    Put the SD card in a SD reader. and let the Wii U format it.
    It'll wear out the card quickly though.
    Actually, the lock switch is just a piece of plastic. There's no way it can break short of breaking off completely.
    There's actually a sensor in the SD reader that checks the position of the switch. So if anything is going to break it's most likely that.

    Well, yeah, hence the 'it MIGHT fix the issue' as in it likely won't..... but he also might have a problem with the adaptator, which sounds like one of the decepticons? So the problem could be far worse than we thought....:lol:
