    MicroSD cards seem to be rather shitty these days.

    MicroSD's don't have a write lock, are you sure it isn't just the files/folders on it being set to read only?

    Many microSD turn to "write protect" when they detect hardware failures in order to protect the data that is already there.
    When this happens you have to backup their content, throw them out the window and buy a new one.
