    SD card without stupid switch?

    hi i am annoyed. I had a 2gb card that broke becuase the switch brock and it sied it was write protected. I played with the switch nothing... so i opened it... nothing then I snaped the little freaker in half. I also have an adaptor that is almost broke a lot of times I cannot write to it and homebrew doesent work well when the switch is on. I am asking can you get a 16GB SDHC card that DOESE NOT HAVE THE FRICKING SWITCH.

    I've never seen an SD/SDHC without a lock switch. They are not on micro SD/SDHC but they are on the required adapter.

    You should probably mention the brand or something to help the OP.

    Wow. Yeah. Not that I'm an expert on SD cards or anything but I don't recall ever seeing one without a lock myself.

    my sd card had a really loose lock switch a quick drop of super glue solved the problem

    You could probably try sticking something on the sd card to act like the lock switch but make it so it stays unlocked.

    Quick thoughts could be to cellotape a bit of cardboad on to the SD card that could solve it.

    I used a tiny piece of card and some Sellotape for one i had with a broken switch.

    OP, please remember that there may be younger members reading this, bad language is not needed and only shows a lack of imagination in the vocabulary department.
