Question about Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera
Camera was working fine last night. When turned on this morning the camera's LCD displayed Card Write protected. I took the sd card out and it was NOT on lock. put it back in and attempted to take a shot and it displayed again. I tried a different SD card and it displayed the same error. I tried reformatting both of the cards and then attempted to shoot with both cards and again it displayed that there was a card write protected. I assumed that it was the cards, but wanted to be sure so i took both cards out and put them in my friend's nikon D80 and they both worked fine. I put my cards that i thought were giving me the error into his D80 and it too worked fine. I put his card into my Canon XSI and it displayed the same error. Last thing i tried was resetting all settings back to normal and then shooting. Again.. Same error. Please advise.
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.

That's just the quirky autofocus of the d80. Try tilting the camera diagonally to focus and tilting back up to shoot.
Unfortunately, autofocus issues like those are the difference between a d80 and a d200/d300 :/

You should have no trouble using the SDHC cards. SDHC stands for Secure Digital High Capacity. The images should load directly from camera to computer, without the need for any additional hardware.

SOURCE: SHOOTING ON A NIKON D80
1. Use Dynamic Focus. It enables you to track the animal if it is moving.
2. Focus on the animal's eyes. If the eyes are in focus, it will make the photograph.
3. I suggest spot metering with quick animals. It may wash out the background but you will get the shot of your 'prey'.
4. If the animal is stationary, stick between f8 - 11.
5. As far as possible, shoot just after dawn and before sunset. You get good light that way.
6. Try to frame the animal against the sky or some other light colour if the animal is dark or against a dark background (or the sky again) if the animal is light.
7. Switch off the beep sounds of the camera.
8. A good sturdy tripod.
9. Patience. Oodles of it.
10. I stay in Africa (for the time being) and enjoy photography. I usually go by these maxims. I hope they work for you.

SOURCE: Nikon D80 SD Card slot problem
Is it slightly thicker on the contact end, Or is something stuck on the flat corner? try getting a needle and picking out any plastic that could be stuck there. Is the card under warranty?
