MMC Write Protection

When I use my Office PC to transfer MP3s using a Card reader I always often get a WRITE PROTECT error. So I cant delete and modify the contents of the MMC. Ive tried unclicking the attributes to tick the read-only check box but it doesnt succeed. I tried seleq to see if its write protected and it wasnt so I did a restart and disconnected the network drives cause I thought they were conflicting with my removable drives of the Card reader, but still it doesnt work. I backed up my MMC in the hopes of doing a format but when i clicked format, theres a different size of MMC there it says, 4.00GB not 128(5)MB. I tried to format anyway, same thing WRITE Protected error. God! Its very annoying to have a fu@*ing problem like this!

After a while it worked and I was able to perform this very simple task. :?

Thing is, I hate it when it happens, it consumes time and effort and drains ones patience. Does anyone have a solution for this?

The Phone:
A 3660 with a 128MB PQI
The Office PC:
HP5500 C drive and 2 cdroms D, E.
Card Reader takes:
F, G, H, I, drives
Network drives takes:
S, T, P, B drives

Help Please!!!

I have no explanation for this, but i just try some ways to get around it like pull and plug (MMC and Reader) or restart then plug or plug then restart. Stuffs like that, it still pisses me off. I threw the MMC a couple of times hard on the floor because of this and rammed my palm on the reader, its really a piss off. But try doing those stuffs i mentioned and if ur lucky then good for u.

Ya I know this thread is a bit old, but for the sake of discussion, i found out that my card reader, with its just about more than 6month age is defective. when i tried using some other MMC reader it worked fine without any problems... The thing is, the reader I bought is not that cheap... i wonder why... it just cant write anymore...
