Copy the file. Then, open a Terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T), and type in "sudo nautilus", without quotes. In the new window that pops-up, go to your microSD card, and paste the file.

I Think the micro SD adapter you are using is having the Read Only switch turned , turn it off and reinsert card ...
try copying now
micro sd card adapter switch is located on the side and the switch slides

Can you help with this problem?
