    The SD card I use for my Wii suddenly won't let me use it to it's full extent. My PC says its write protected even though it has no lock tab on the side. I even opened it up from inside. This may be the wrong board but I am at my wits.

    can you still delete stuff off the sd card when it's in the wii through wiixplorer say like a game cover or something not needed if you can it's probably your card reader
