How to remove write protect from olympus xd card


You don't state whether you've tried using the tiny switch located on the xD card to unlock it.

If it is already in the unlocked position then push it fully to the locked position and then fully back again.

If this does not work then please report back for additional options.

I installed a 2gb Olympus xd picture card and formated it replacing the 16mb Olympus xd picture card. Now the yellow light blinks for a full minute before the camera is ready to take pictures. This happens...


wow that is kinda long did you format it in the camera or on your computer? also if you turn down the video/picture quality it will not take so long but 2 min is kinda long you might have a bad card take it back where you got it and see if they will swap it for a different one format it in the camera and try again if it is still slow try to format it in your computer and use FAT32
this is the most compatible and should work best Thanks 8^)

Xd memory was write protect


There is no write protect external switch on XD. The error is the result of a bad sector, improper ejection from a media reader, or in the worst case - a file virus. The only solution is a reformat. This will destroy all photos and data on the card, so be sure to save them prior to this step, assuming they can still be seen and read by the camera or a PC.

Both the camera and PC will have reformat utilities for the card. Once this is performed, then the write protect will go away.

Xd memory card


A card access error may indicate that an xD-Picture Card memory card is in a write-protected condition. xD-Picture Card memory cards have a special protection feature to ensure that your pictures are kept safe. NOTE: During this condition, you can still use the printer for printing and saving photos from the xD-Picture Card to a secure location, such as the computer hard drive. To resolve this error, try the following:
  • Reinsert the xD-Picture Card memory card into your camera and turn on the camera. In most cases, the camera automatically makes the necessary changes.
  • Reformat the xD-Picture Card memory card. See the documentation that came with your camera for instructions on reformatting the memory card. Note that this process erases the pictures currently saved to your memory card. To save these pictures, transfer them to the computer before reformatting the memory card. Once you reformat the memory card, transfer those photos back to the memory card using the computer.

Stylus 600. When I turn camera on a blue screen comes up with a message [xD] Write Protect. What does this mean and how do I make it go away?


In order to remove the message of write protect you will need to format the xD memory card. The card has somehow become corrupted. To format the memory card - press Ok - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to Card Setup - right arrow to Format - Up arrow to Yes and then press Ok. This will permanently delete all images from the memory card and you will be able to start taking images again.

If the card was edited via a computer the xD card becomes locked for protection purposes. Put the card in the recorder and format the recorder the lock will be gone. The device will show up as a removeable disk but gets moody if the memory is altered in any way by the computer.
