Re: Lenovo Yoga 710 SD Card Reader asks to format before use then says card is write protected.

2017-04-18, 14:16 PM

I bought a new card reader board and installed it and re-installed drivers seems to have fixed the issue. So it looks like it was a hardware issue after all.

Did your SD card formatted before your first use? can U find the SD card in Disk Management? Probably you can't access it.

here are some ways to fix write protected SD card:

#1 Diskpart Command to fix

  • Press Windows+R key combination.
  • diskpart
  • list disk
  • select disk n, where n is the number of SD card.
  • attributes disk clear readonly

#2 Regedit Command

  • Press Windows+R key combination.
  • regedit
  • find the location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies
  • click WriteProtect (create manually if there is no one) under StorageDevicePolicies, change the value from 1 to 0.

#3 Use write protected SD card format software, like AOMEI Partition Assistant to remove write protection from SD card.

Hope these solution can fix your problem.

Regards.

Hi, I also have the same hardware issue with my new 710-14IKB : the same SD card is detected as "read only" in built-in reader BUT not in an external memory card reader plugged on this computer.

I indeed tried the format, diskpart and regedit methods unsuccessfully.

 

How hard is it to replace the internal card reader ?

Very easy actually. It's 6 screws on the bottom of the computer, pop off the bottom and 2 screws hold on the SD card reader. I bought a previously owned SD card reader on eBay for 14 dollars had the repair done in 10 mins or less.
