Sorry i mean when you run regedit   I cant remember where you drill down to in the registry to change the allow SD to fromat from 000001 to 0. It was a fix on previous versions of windows.

Anyway i have found a work around using a usb interface .

Just Right Click My Computer Choose Manage 
Then at Computer Management choose Disk Management 
At Disk "XX" Right Click at your "Protect Removable Disk" ex: "Removable Disk (F:)" 
and Choose "Change Drive Letter and Paths for ....." 
Simple Click "REMOVE", then Click "ADD", simple .... 
Try to Format Yours then Try to Copy Another files

taken from elsewhere but it seems to work for me.
