Try turning on the write protect before inserting the card into the card reader. This will prevent the computer from writing to the card. When you finish downloading, turn off the write protect, put the card back into the camera, and format it. The write protect switch is on the edge of the card. The position farther from the contacts write-protects the card.
Take the memory card out of your camera. 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. Then put the card back into the camera.
These 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.
If that isn't the problem, then perhaps the Wii has given the card an incompatible format. Try formatting the card. There is a function in the camera menus to do this. This will erase anything on the card, but it appears that you can't access it anyway.
I assume you mean the card protection on the SD card??? Turn off the camera, pop out the SD card, slide the little switch on the side of the SD card from locked to unlocked, re-insert the card the way it came out, and turn the camera back on. If it still doesn't work, take thed batteries out, reinsert them, then turn it on again. It should be ready now to record onto the external memory. If it still doesn't, get the manual out and check on transferring fiels from internal to external memory.
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.
"Write Protect" means that something is locked and your device (camera) cannot "write" to it's storage area. What type of "storage media" are you using? For example: the camera's internal memory, a CompactFlash card, a Memory Stick, an "xD-Picture Card" (micro, mini or regular sized), or a Secure Digital/MultiMediaCard. [Did you put something (a small plastic card of some sort) into a slot on the camera before or after turning it on? Those little cards usually have a tiny button (also called a switch or lever) on them that will move back and forth to lock (write protect) or unlock it. This sounds like the memory card inside your camera is locked or "Write Protected.
To fix this simply take it out, closely examine the memory for the button- the button will be closer to the word "lock" or "protect" and all you need to do is gently slide it in the opposite direction from where it currently is. Put it back into the camera and see if it still says "Write Protect."
The card locked usually means 'protected'
Check out the manual for image protection - on/off.
Or put card back into computer and delete[NOT FORMAT] from there.
A more comprehensive manual is usually found the the CD that came with the camera
