    Formatting the card worked perfectly for me. Just need to remember to save any photos from your camera before formatting as all photos are erased

I get the message "card error". What will happen if i pull the write protect switch on the side of the card? Will that fix the problem with the "card error" or what should I do?


The switch controls card protection. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is currently in the lock position, then moving it may solve the problem.

What happens with another memory card?

MEMORY CARD ERROR, CARD LOCKED BUT IT ISN'T LOCKED HOW CAN I FIX IT


When this problem occur you need to set the memory card unlock or not protected. Remove the memory card from camera and you can see a small button in the memory card, so you need to slide that to set the memory card unlock or not protected.

Memory card saying "write protected"


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.

SDHC card won't work


Your card is an SDHC, your camera supports only SD/MMC cards. I know this because i found thisp ostlooking for a way to make it accept SDHC cards, a software update could easily work in theory but someone would have to write that update. Technology changes fast doesnt it.

Memory card is write protected


Take your memory card out of the camera and switch the position of the little "lock" tab. That should fix it and you can start saving images.

Well... If it's telling you that it's write-protected, then you most likely have an SD memory card in the memory card slot.

Take this card out of the memory slot. Inspect the memory card for a small, white tab on the side of the card. Notice that this tab slides up and down. Move it in the opposite direction of it's current position.

Insert the card into the camera, turn it on and see what happens then.

Keep in mind that the camera also has built-in flash memory. If it wasn't the SD memory card, then perhaps there is a setting in the camera's options that was used to write-protect the internal memory as well? (Doubt that's the case with the internal memory, however. Never heard of a camera doing that before.)

I'm sure that checking the mem card and sliding the white tab forward will fix your problem. Let us know.
