take out the SD card and look at the edges, there is a switch.

if it is towards the middle of the card, then it is locked, if it is towards the top edge of the card, then it is unlocked.

if the files on the SD card are marked read only or system, AS will fail to delete them too.

just tested it with my spare mmc card, first file read only, deleted fine over AS, it did popup a warning saying that it is read only, second file system file, would not delete, third file read only + system file, would not delete.

the message it gives is

Cannot delete file test3: Access is denied.

Make sure you mobile device has sufficient memory, that the file is not set as read-only, and that you have permission to copy this file type.

the remaining 2 test files were deleted fine using file explorer on the device itself.

Hope that helps.

sure your card doesn't have the lock as shown below in the image?



All SD cards usually come equipped with the read-write switch.

actually no...
i dont have a card reader...


otherwise - i would have formated it i guess...
and yea - the device's explorer can delete the files but is annoying like :evil: to do it through there...

would much rather do everything through my good old pc...
