Question about Polaroid a300 Digital Camera
My camera won't let me take a picture it says SD protected i won't let me take a pic at all
Take a closer look at your SD card. There is a write protection switch on one side. You need to
shift it to the unprotected position.

Well, make sure you have checked the small gray tab on the left side of the sd card. It needs to be in the unlocked position. Too bad for me, because i have the same problem and my sd card isn't locked...

It sounds like something was corrupted when you transferred your pictures to the computer.
If you have all the pictures safely on your computer, it will be ok to reformat the memory card and then just copy and paste the pictures back to the card.
Insert the card in your card reader, go to My Computer, you should be able to see the card as a removable drive. You can click and open it just like a folder and see what is on the card.
I would also back up the pictures to an external drive or dvd so they are extra safe!

It means the sd card cant be accessed unless you remove the protection . Connect sd to laptop and use software to remove the protection .

Did you download the pics from the cards while they were in the camera or use something else? Sounds like you used MS camera wizard. That's where the problem probably happened. I'd say they're gone. But double check by using a device you insert the SD card into and then plug into your USB port on your PC and check the cards' contents that way.

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.
