I've dealt with this problem for a long time, and based on a quick google search, so have plenty of others. Basically the SD reader on some MacBook Pros behaves as if the lock switch on the SD card was in the locked position, making the card read only.

I know it is the OSX SD card reader because taking the card out of MacBook Pro reader and into a USB reader, on the same computer, it's read-only with the built-in reader, and read write when using the USB reader.

Does anyone know how to force OSX to mount the SD card as read write no matter what position the card reader thinks the lock switch is in?
