SOURCE: SD card Protected

It sounds like the tiny locking switch on the SD card has accidently been set to "lock". Remove the card from the camera and slide the switch to the opposite position. That should do it.

SOURCE: Camera won't work because the sd card is protected

First I know you've said you've checked the card's slide switch, but just want to restate this first for others with the same problem who may not know of this switch.

Check to make sure that you didn't accidentally place the tiny locking slide switch on the side of your SD card in the "locked" downward position. The correct "unlocked" position should be slid up toward the direction of the connectors.

If you've tried this, and it's still showing locked, it's likely that the locking switch inside the camera's card slot is stuck. If you look inside the slot on the side of the slot where the SD card slide switch would be, you'll see a glint of gold color on the side. This is the camera's lock/unlock switch. The other glint's of gold that you may see at the far end of the slot are the reader's connectors (ignore those).

Somehow, the locking switch is making contact and has become stuck in the locked position. With a plastic toothpick, or other skinny NON-METALLIC item, tap against this switch to see if you can jar open the contact to its normal unlocked position. Also try blowing compressed air at it, as some gunk may have worked its way in there, jamming it closed. Occasionally, reinsert the SD card to see if the issue has been corrected.

If repeated tries fail, it may be time to consider opening the camera to force open this switch (not recommended unless you have some familiarity with electronics). In this case please see the following (xscrewdriver, hope you don't mind me referencing your blog):

SOURCE: Using a sdhc card in a Panasonic DMC-FZ10

There is no "new" firmware upgrade for this model. Meaning it is NOT compatible with the SDHC card. Largest you can get is an SD 2GB card.
Sorry

SOURCE: Canon PowerShot SD 630 Digital Elph "Memory Card Error"

Hi,
I'm sorry to tell that PowerShot SD 630 does not support SDHC cards over 2 gig.
If you want the camera to take a card over 2 gig then you are stuck standard SD cards.
The other camera does support the card because it's a higher model.


Regards.

SD CARD reader error: Insert removable disk into drive F:/


One of two I was say is the issue.
  • When you improperly ejected the card you messed up the MFT (master file table) on the card. You will want to format the card.
  • You could have hosed the drivers. In Device manager look under the driver details there should be some files listed. You will probably need to delete these and replace them. Since they may be system files you would need to replace them in a live boot environment such as a linux live boot cd (ubuntu.com) would be the easiest. Get the drivers it has listed copy them to a thumb drive. Boot the computer to the live CD, delete the driver files and replace with the new ones.

Write protect error


You neglected to specify the model of your Olympus camera, so I'm assuming it uses SD/SDHC cards.

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

After inserting memory card the error 'this card cannot be used' has occured


The L105 works with SD cards. Make sure you're not using an SDHC card. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Just installed a new memory card in my powershot A430 and the camera says memory card error, card is locked. how do I unlock?


What type and size memory card? The A430 works with SD cards. It won't work with SDHC cards.

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

There should not be anything to install when inserting an SD card, all you do is put the card in the card slot. If you tell it to format you have to go into the menu first and tell the camera which you are referring to the card or the harddrive. If you didnt change the setting to SD card when you did give it the format command than that is why your data was lost. If you are having an SD card error make sure that the little slide switch on the card is set as not to protect the card that will give the error sometimes. I hope this helps

Card has wrong format?


The first thing you will have to check the card. There is slot on the card that contains a switch. This will lock the card so that it is write-protected. This will cause the unsupported card error.

If the card looks fine, try a card reader just to confirm that the card has not been corrupted.

If the card is functional and you can read its contents from the PC or another SD-slot device, then the issue is your camera. The slot contains thin copper prongs that comes in contact the copper surface on the back of the SD card. If the prongs are bent or damage, then the camera cannot read your card.

Camera says card write protected


I just figured it out- on my memory card there's a small "switch" on the left hand side that you can slide up and down. Make sure that this is up the top, not down towards where it says Lock. If it's down, this makes the card Write Protected.
