Hi guys, I have an SD Card 8Gb that I used to use in a Win computer. I'm now a Mac user. The SD Card can be read, but can not be formatted or have any files deleted or inserted. The slider in turned ok on the card, but the properties of it keep saying "read-only" permission. And in the Disk Utility app the options to erase the sd card are all disabled! The only option I can run there is "verify disk"...  what have to be done to get the sd card functional read-AND-write on Mac?


I appreciate if you guys can help me out.. Thanks!
