If you're talking about an SD or SDHC Card, you may be dealling with the Write Protect Tab. On the left side of the card, the side opposite the diagonal notched corner, there's a notch with a slide. The slide must be in the top position, toward the electrical contacts, in order for you to be able to write to the card. Can you verify the position of the slide?
