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.

SD memory cards have a little write protect switch on them. Take it out of the camera and slide the switch to unlock.

Memory card is write protected


SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

What replaces pictureproject with the coolpix L10 ? will nikon view NX2 work for coolpix L10 ?


Picture Project was replaced by Nikon Transfer and Nikon ViewNX2. Both of those programs will work perfectly well with the L10. You can download the current versions of all (free) Nikon software from
http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

Once the pictures are on your computer, you can use View NX2 to look at them and do some editing.

My memmory card says it is write protected what to do?


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Other causes include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.
By the way, if you're using a brand new SDHC card, the L10 is indeed an older camera and can only utilize 2GB or less standard SD cards.

I can not delete pictures the memory card is reading it is write protected?


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.

Screen is Blank..Nothing shows up


Hey mneeth,
I would first try formatting the memory card, but remember when you do this it will erase all the images on your memory card so upload your images to your computer first. If this doesn't work I would try resetting the camera to its factory settings which can be done from the setup menu. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Locked Camera


The memory card has a yellow tab on it. Remove the memory card from the camera and just slide the tab and re-insert the card. That should work.
