When I try to mount/fdisk or otherwise write to 4 GB SD flash memory
from my Canon camera I get an error message that the USB drive 
cannot be written to or the partition table cannot be changed.

There is a "lock" tab on the SD card, but neither position makes
a difference. I suspect the Canon camera writes some sort of
protection onto this card, so I am wondering how I can circumvent
this write protection.

It looks like a generic brand of SD card that came with the 

Any ideas on how to make this writable?
