Tip & How-To about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera
Hi due to so many questions asked about this here it is. How to deal with memory card locked/write protected error.
SOLUTION 1 - Unlock the memory card.
There is a Lock switch on the left side of the SD card. Make sure the Lock switch is slid up (unlock position). You will not be able to modify or delete the contents on the memory card if it is locked.
SOLUTION 2 - Toggle the lock switch.
If the lock switch is not on lock:
1. Slide the switch up and down. Repeat this 3 times.
2. Let it stay on the Lock position for 30 seconds.
3. Slide the switch up to unlock the card.
4. Try to transfer files into the device.
For non-SD cards: Format the card
The data on the memory card may be corrupted.
WARNING: Formatting will delete all the files in the device. Backup all your data before formatting.
Memory card write protected, memory card locked, memory card will not read, can't use memory card.
