    I can't figure out why my MicroSD cards keep doing this. I never changed anything, it just started happening. I've tried three different Micro SD cards, all of different size/class.

    I also tried using the SD adapter, and changing the lock switch, nothing. So what do I do? I can't write or delete files from the cards. Also, I'm using the same adapter I've always used, so it shouldn't be a problem.

    Are you sure it's not the SD adapter which is malfunctioning? Have you tried another adaptor?

    It could be, but I don't have another adapter to try, so that's my last resort...

    Is the slot on your computer changing the position of the lock switch on your SD adapter every time you put it in? I was having this problem on my computer; I had to put it in very carefully and slowly to get it to work (of course, once I got a USB adapter to replace the one that had broken, the problem went away.)

    Probably a switch.
