How do you unlock a memory card?
The write-protect lock on an SD card is a very small plastic slider on the side of the card itself. It should be labeled as such, probably in fine print.

As you can see from the arrow in the picture, slide down to lock, or up to unlock.
Note that if the switch breaks off, that will leave the card in the locked state. If you can't find anything, that may be what happened.
