    You see that "Lock" slide thingy on your SD?
    Try to use it.


    EDIT: WTF WHY IS THIS IN SITE DISCUSSIONS???

    My sd card has no side thingy

    it was given with my canon camera and it didnt have this problem in the beginning.

    I have 4 such cards.

    Get your facts straight. I've taken three pictures from three different angles to prove to you that my SD doesn't have any 'lock thingy'.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Dude, if he says his doesn't have one, then it doesn't have one.

    @OP: Have you tried reformatting the card?

    Just to clear your confusion, the write protection doesnt allow me to do anything. Pasting, deleting formatting, all are useless.

    For one thing you don´t have an SD card, you have an MMCplus card, it even says that on the sticker. That explains why you dont have the write protection tab.
    That can also explain why it doesn´t work properly. If you already tried to format it and it fails even then, it could be that the card is corrupted, a fuse is blown in the DSi or something along that.
    The powerdemand for MMC+ cards are different from regular SD / MMC and some of the lowlevel stuff is pretty different, so it can simply be that the DSi doesn´t support it.
    Just buy an ordinary SD card if you even need it, the smaller sizes cost less then a beer at the pub usually.

    Thanks for the replies guys.
    That was quite informative.
    I'll check if I can format it and remove the write protection using my camera.
