Hi can you please tell me how to turn off the card protected feature? i dont even know how i turned it on.

i think you need to access the card protect feature on the memory card and try to flip it in the other direction. Maybe u might have mistakenly turned the card protection on.

Every time i turn on my camara it says protected card but its not the memory card its not locked! so whats wrong with my camara??


The message which you are getting because you memory stick is write protected.There is a small thing which make a card write protected.

As I dont know which card you are using so here I am giving an simple example with images.
Just click HERE and first read the instruction.It is from SANDISK as it is the most trusted memory stick brand so i am giving its resemblance.

Follow the same steps and make you card working.
If you still persists or you have any more query then get back to me here.

All The Best.

I have a "! Protected Card" message on my screen

Look at the memory card again. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

SD memory card not aknowledged,on start up goes to internal memory. when card is pushed up further says "this card is protected". does work after lots of manipulation of the card and constant turning on...

1. With the card out of the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen directions. 2. Download any pics you want to save from the card using a card reader. 3. Be sure the slide switch on the side of the card is in the unlocked position. 4. Insert the card into the camera and follow the format procedure again.

Protected card

Hi Jen,

It sounds like your memory card is locked. To unlock do the following:

  1. Remove the memory card from the camera.
  2. On one side of the card will be a switch.
  3. Change the switch to unlocked by pulling up or down.
  4. Replace the card in the camera.

The card should now be unlocked.
Now you will be able to take pictures (If the memory card was the problem)

KInd regards!!!

Cant delete

Well... If it's telling you that it's write-protected, then you most likely have an SD memory card in the memory card slot.

Take this card out of the memory slot. Inspect the memory card for a small, white tab on the side of the card. Notice that this tab slides up and down. Move it in the opposite direction of it's current position.

Insert the card into the camera, turn it on and see what happens then.

Keep in mind that the camera also has built-in flash memory. If it wasn't the SD memory card, then perhaps there is a setting in the camera's options that was used to write-protect the internal memory as well? (Doubt that's the case with the internal memory, however. Never heard of a camera doing that before.)

I'm sure that checking the mem card and sliding the white tab forward will fix your problem. Let us know.
