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.

I cant format my microsd because of write sector error


hi
make sure your card reader is not locked. Most card readers have facilities to lock a memory stick. If left in that position, they write protect the memory stick. Meaning you can neither transfer to it nor change and sometimes remove stuffs from the memory stick. Insert the memory stick into another card reader and try formating again or check the memory card itself if the write protect feature is part of its structure. Usually there's a hint of that in form of tiny diagrams and signs of how to lock and unlock the memory stick. hope this helps

My camcorder won't record. The memory card icon on the screen shows a lock on it as though it's protected so the camera won't record while in a bag etc. How do I turn that feature off so that I can...

CAMERA SAYS CARD IS LOCKED ON A SAMSUNG P1000 CAMERA


SD type cards have a little switch on the card that can write protect or "lock" it. Take the card out of the camera and check this switch. To unlock it, it should be moved towards the edge of the card which has the electrical contacts.

There is also a software protection feature on some cameras, but this is used to protect a folder or individual picture from accidental deletion, not the whole memory. You set or release this protection from the camera menus.

If it is not that, then maybe it is having trouble with the size of the memory. Memory cards have grown enormously in capacity in the last couple of years, and even relatively new cameras may not be able to cope with the memory size of the newest cards. Have you tried formatting the card in the camera? This would be one way of making sure that the camera can cope with the card, and it will also erase anything on the card.

My microsd 2gb memory card show write protected.plz help me


You will need to use a regular SD Card Adapter for the micro sd card. The micro sd card itself does not have a write protected switch, but a regular SD card adapter will, and that does affect the microsd card. You just need to put it in an adapter, flip the switch to make sure it knows it is "locked" - so switch it to locked first, then switch it to unlocked. From there you should be able to write to the card. If you can not then it is possible the micro-sd card is having physical problems and may need to be replaced. Here is a little diagram showing how to unlock the card. Before you go though please make sure to rate my answer 4 thumbs up, it is extremely important to me for you to do so. I would be forever grateful!
