Is it possible that it is defective?

Who made it? Did you format it?

at the very least, i would need the manufacturer and size to start research

You mentioned it has a copyprotect tab that you side back and forth? I thought these cards had a notch on the side (obviously I was wrong)

I've heard cases where ipaq will lock these things up...

what are you inserting this in? A computer card reader? You say it is write protected, but will not work in computer...meaning it is not seen, or you can alter it?
