Maybe your memory card FAT file system is corrupted[1] and because
of this the device has made it read-only?

[1] Microsoft FAT file system corrupts easily.  All you need for that
     is unplugging the device USB cable without using "safely remove",
     taking the card or battery out, or device rebooting while there
     are unfinished writes to the memory card...

I would recommend checking the card file system on PC to see whether
the it has issues, that could cause all kinds of trouble for the device.
You can use PC to repair the file system, but simplest might be just
reformatting the card and copying the data again to it.
