    Check that the lever on the side really is in the correct position, and try another reader. Or another laptop/computer.

    If the chips inside have reached their read/write limit, then the SD card may be dead.

    Edit: also, one more thing, check the SD card for errors. If it's not been properly/safely removed, it can cause the file system to "freeze" until it's been checked and corrected.

    Just a note, micro cards have no such thing, but adapters do so if you're using a micro in a full size slot, make sure to check the adapter.

    Mine was like this a few months ago, I had to buy a new one as all of the "fixes" wouldn't do anything to it.

    Apparently sd cards lock themselves when they are about to break.
