    My Droid smartphone wasn't smart enough to stay out of my pool. (Well, actually, it was I who wasn't so smart.) Anyway, it's a loss, but I thought I might be able to salvage the 8gb Micro SD card out of it. Unfortunately, it's write protected. My computer will not format it, and my E-PL1 is not able to remove the write protection or format the card. Is there any way I can do this?
