Everytime I plug in my card reader I get this error.

This means I can't transfer any data to my card.Data transfer from card to PC takes place properly though.I can't even format the card using card reader because of it.I use Nokia 6630 and 1 gb card.

Does someone know of a solution.?? .This problem is driving me nuts. .

What kind of card are you using?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

On some cards there's a little tab on the side that slides back and forth - that's the write-protect tab. Try changing it's position to see if that helps.

It may be possible that your card reader is read-only, preventing you from reading anything off of the card. In that case you would either have to just live with it or get a new card reader.

Nokia 6630...Mentioned it in first post itself.

The card reader was working fine when I brought it.On the box it clearly says Card Reader/Writer.

I had a look here Regarding the error and found this solution

Conversely, if you can't find a tab on the back of the diskette, you can remove the write protection by covering this hole with a piece of tape.


Would it be safe to do so??

Try a thin piece of tape like scotch tape. It shouldn't hurt anything
