Default question about pics and micro sd.

Please Login to Remove!

few days ago i was able to delete pics from my card by inserting it into my pc, and now all these pics i used to have on it are coming up when i insert it into my phone, "read only files" that im not able to delete?

I generally delete them one at a time directly from the device, but that might not be practical for you...how many pics do you want to delete?

its a bunch of pics, i tried deleting them one by one when a pop up on the phone sais "the selected file is "read only" are you sure you wish to delete the file?"
some pics show and some just show a little green arrow pointing to the left.

why isnt it letting me manage it when i insert the card into the pc?

just back up everything you need and then format your card then upload the stuff you things u saved.

Check your MicroSD-to-SD adapter. There is a switch on it labeled Lock which, when enabled, write-protects everything on the card.
