    Problem : Bought 3ds on ebay. SD Write protection error.

    I did some troubleshooting and to make sure it wasn't the SD card / System corruption.

    I'm quite sure the issue lies withing the SD card socket.

    I'm assuming the pin on the right controls the write protection. Should i bend it up or down to resolve my issue?

    [Called nintendo as well, they pretty much told me to pound salt and wouldn't release any information on which pin controls write protection]

    It'll have a spring or mechanical switch over the SD's write protection switch. Bend that one toward the card.

    I'm guess that's the thing i see hanging on the side that looks like a pin .
    Down it goes then. Will report back in a few / try to get a picture.

    A stack of bagels to hold my phone light, a paper clip , some reading glasses and the sage advice of Mikemk.
    The issue has been resolved. I feel like damn MacGyver.
    Thanks a ton.
