Hey... I just figured it out. I have had the same problem and just figured it out. On the memory card itself, there is a lock option. You need to unlock the memory card itself. Good luck!!!

Go to your menu section and disable the protection there.

How to unlock a photo in camara


The protect function allows a user to protect a picture from accidental deletion. To unprotect a picture on your camera, scroll to the protected picture that you want to delete, then press the Menu button (the button to the right of the Play button.) Scroll down the menu and you should come to an option that allows you to Protect/Unprotect the picture. Since your picture is currently protected, deselect that option. You should then be able to delete the picture normally.

Alternatively, you could also format the memory card, however this deletes ALL photos and data you have on the memory card. If you are trying to completely clear the memory, this is the best way. After turning on your camera, simply press the Menu button, scroll to Setup, then scroll down to Format. Select Format, it will ask you if you want to format the memory card, or the camera's built-in memory. Format whichever one you want to clear, if you are using a memory card then your pictures are stored on the memory card. It will take a few seconds to format.

Hope this helps.

I get the message 'protected card' Next trick?


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked/protected", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. The second most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. There are also other common causes if the above didn't help, with troubleshooting steps for this problem listed here.

I put my memory card into my Kodak EasyShare C143 digital camera. I press the review button, but all that comes up is that the file is 'Unrecognised'. One out of the three pictures is unprotected, but the...


It sounds as if the card was not formatted for the camera before it was put to use. My suggestion is that you attempt to download the images that you do have to the computer, then format the memory card. Always format a new card and after each time you download pictures from the card to the computer.

Hello! I have a problem with my cam. When I put the memorycard into the cam, it says - memory protect! What does it mean and what should I do? Thanks in advance!!


Actually your memory card is 'memory-protected' ! You cannot use it without making it 'unprotected'.

Try these steps to unprotect it :

1. Remove the memory card from the camera.

2. On the down-end (which faces outside when it's inside the camera) of the card, you will find a small sliding switch.

3. Move the switch to the opposite direction (left or right) of the present position.

4. Now, it is unprotected and you can use it!

please rate me if it helps....tc! :)

On most sd cards there is a physical (tiny) sliding switch on the memory card. Here is a picture of a standard SD card. On the left you can see the gray switch in the unlocked position. Hope that helps. -WN
