    There is a plastic slider on the side of the card (on some) that you can use to lock and unlock the cards. Not all of them have this though.

    FYI: Only SD cards have this. SD = Secure Digital. MultiMedia Cards (MMC) do not.

    Did MMC go the way of the BetaMax?

    It's old tech when they have the sliders. And only standard size SD cards have them. I even have some micro to SD adapters that have it for some reason.
