Hi,

Thanks Amir, tried your suggestion but no matter which way I put the switch when I try to take a photo all that comes up on the screen is SD PROTECTED for some reason it won't read the SD card.

Thanks anyway and if you have any other idea then please let me know.

Bill.

Just check your sd card lock key... there is a small swith on the left side of moemory card; if if it is in down position, it's protected. so turn it to un protected mode. I hope this helps...

    Hi Bill,
    I'm not sure but I think it's your card, so to test it, make sure your card is in unprotected mode and do one of following ways:
    1. If you or ane of your friends have another sd card or a camera which support sd card, test your card in that camera and/or that card in your camera;
    2. If you have a card reader try to copy a file on your card or delete, move or rename one of your card's files.
    now if your card have the same problem with other cameras, your camera is good with new cards, or you cannot change your card's files in computer; your card is corrupted and you must use its waranty or buy a new one.
    PS: I'm not hopeful but sometimes (1%) formatting the card can solve the problem so you can try it before buying new one. (back up your files first.)
    I hope this helps...

Write protection won't allow me to download music


Hi,
On the left side of your SD card you have a micro switch on it and must be on the upper position. On the down position your SD card is write protected !
