If you feel annoying to switch the lock tab every time when you want to refresh your chdk build(especially developers), there is
the ultimate solution  :D
This helps for those who broke this tab(and almost the whole card), like me....
Only you need to connect those two pins together like i did on the image.

Same thing I have made on all my cardreaders. But multi-cardreader after this don't erase my xD cards :) Maybe resistor instead of short-circuit is better solution.

umm...dzsemx, can you explain exactly what you did? I don't seem to get it :P
Where do you connect the pins?

Hi dzsemx,
use superglue when the first cracks are formed, i have prepared 2 cards this way - but for the card on your pic it's alittle too late (looks a bit like there are some mice in your camera ?)

Now i have 2 cheap plastic card readers which ignores the lock (without modification), that saves lots of glue  :haha

Oooh can you link me to where you bought those? My cheap plastic card reader ($6) looks at the lock unfortunately...gets really annoying at times. but if I can buy a cheap (<$10) reader which doesn't see the lock...it would help. I am constantly copying stuff to my card :D

i've got Transcend Multi-Card Reader M5, a nice thing, but it detects position of the lock switch of SD. Decided to remove it.
Maybe someone post this small instruction into Wiki..

 ;)
