Write Protection: There is a tab on the memory card so you will you need to remove it from the camera and change the position of this tab to "unlock" it.

"card protected " appears whenever i attempt a

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.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

How to Rip Nintendo Wii Games: VIDEO GUIDE OPEN HERE>>>

If you want to rip, or back up, games for your Nintendo Wii, it's not going to be easy. Nintendo Wii and Gamecube disks both spin in the opposite direction from normal disks to prevent them from being ripped. But there is a way to get around this by ripping the game directly from the Wii onto an SD card.

Step 1 Make sure your Wii is modified with a Wiikey. Without one, you will not be able to rip games for it. You can have Wiikey installed for you, or install it yourself.
  • Step 2 Plug in the Gecko adapter and SD card into your Wii's Gamecube memory card slot. It will then ask you to load a disk.
  • Step 3 Load whatever Wii or Gamecube game you want to rip. It will save the files on the SD card, but the card is too small to fit the whole game. Once it has dumped all the information it can hold, you must remove the SD card and put the files on your computer. Erase the card and put it back in the memory card slot and continue copying the game's information. For a Wii game you will have to do this three times.
  • Step 4 Once you have the entire game on your computer, they will be in usually three separate pieces. Combine them into one file.
  • Step 5 Burn the game file onto a 4.7 GB DVD disk and play it on your Wii. Due to the Wii's protection software, only modified Wii's can play ripped Wii games.

    My brother put my camera SD card in the wii and now when I take pictures it says card protected.

    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.

    Card protection on wii not take pictures

    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.

    Camera says card write protected

    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.

    What does write protect mean?

    "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."
