    Unhappy SD card problems Need Help Fast!

    For some stupid reason I shut my laptop with my SD card still in it (this has never been a problem before) and went to town when I came back my SD card is now write protected and I can't put anything on it! It is really pissing me off and I don't know how to remove the write protection but I really need to be able to work with my SD card again....if I format the card will it fix it? Please help!

    yeah I didn't even know that switched existed until today...it's so small...
    but mine wasn't locked in the first place but after locking it and un locking it, it started to work again
