    Why can't I delete any of the files on my SD card?

    The only currently open programs on my PC are Firefox and Windows Explorer. Windows Explorer will allow me to delete files from a folder on my C drive.

    Does it give any particular error when you attempt to delete the files on the SD card?

    Have a look on the side of the SD card. There is a little lock - maybe that is "on".

    Or, your card is locked.


    Hello WHS,

    We were thinking about the same thing. How are you?
