You should be able to read from an SD card if it is in write-protect mode or not. I prefer to use external card-readers when transferring footage. My current fav is the low cost Delkin USB 3 reader.

Try putting a small piece of thin tape, like Scotch tape, over where the switch is (or was). I've done this on SD cards when the switch was loose or faulty and used them to write to or read from.
