Hi due to so many questions asked about this here it is. How to deal with memory card locked/write protected error.
SOLUTION 1 - Unlock the memory card.
There is a Lock switch on the left side of the SD card. Make sure the Lock switch is slid up (unlock position). You will not be able to modify or delete the contents on the memory card if it is locked.
SOLUTION 2 - Toggle the lock switch.
If the lock switch is not on lock: 1. Slide the switch up and down. Repeat this 3 times. 2. Let it stay on the Lock position for 30 seconds. 3. Slide the switch up to unlock the card. 4. Try to transfer files into the device.
For non-SD cards: Format the card
The data on the memory card may be corrupted.
WARNING: Formatting will delete all the files in the device. Backup all your data before formatting. Memory card write protected, memory card locked, memory card will not read, can't use memory card.
take out the memory card and move the switch located somewhere on the memory card usually on the side to the unlocked position. Then the memory card isn't locked this is so you don't accidentally delete important things Thanks and enjoy, Lee
1. Apple users have reported that the switch on the memory cards performs the file lock function in either extreme positions Lock/Unlock. In some cases they have achieved success in centering the Lock/Unlock switch allowing access to the read/write operation of the memory card
2. Connect to PC
Access drive via windows explorer
Right click on drive (MEMORY CARD)
Confirm that RO (Read Only) is not selected.
Try reading card
Repeat properties un-select RO
Try deleting files
Try pulling the memory card out of camera too see if you can take a picture with out the memory card in place.
If you can do this the memory card is locked. Look at the memory card and find small swith on the side. Look for the lock symbol and be sure the switch is not in the locked position. Move the switch as needed.
Put the card back in and try it. This should solve your problem
