Another thing to try: newRPL ignores the write protect switch, so if the problem is a), then newRPL should be able to write to your card normally.

I purchased this 50g a month ago. It was a refurbished unit but arrived looking brand new. Not even a single scratch. Apparently, these refurbs are certified by HP. Anyway, I've not used the 50g a whole lot, and certainly not enough to get gunk inside the SD card slot. The 50g sits inside its protective case most of the time too.

Opening the 50g looks a little troublesome in that you have to use a suction cup to yank off the LCD screen cover to access screws beneath.

What I can say is that if I shine a flashlight into the SD slot, with the buttons facing up and looking in, I can see on the right a brass colored metal protruding piece that seems to be where the SD Lock sider switch should be. I've marked that protruding metal piece with a red arrow in the following photo:

So even if I did open the 50g, I wouldn't be able to say more than that.

I was about to try your newRPL, per your request just now, but I see the date stamp is back in 2014:

I'm quite sure you updated the bin file this year, right? If so, where is the download page for the newest bin file?
