Hi GEO,

Could you enter in Disk Management and check if the SD card is listed there? Does it have a file format and a drive letter? If there is no drive letter assigned, try using the Diskpart command from Command Prompt to assign one.
It should look like this:

Diskpart
List volume
Select volume n
Assign letter =L (or whatever letter you like and is not in use)

I strongly recommend you to check the SD card on another PC or on some other device.

Hope this helps

i have checked SD card on other PC.
it has write protection on it and im not quite sure to get rid of that.

Try the following commands from the Command Prompt:

diskpart
list disk
select disk x (where x is the number of your SD card)
attributes disk clear readonly

This should remove the write protection of the SD card.

After the list disk command, there should appear a list of the connected drives. Select the SD (if it is listed there) by using select disk x command, where instead of X put the number from the list that corresponds to the SD card. For example, if the SD card appears as drive 3, the next command should be select disk 3
