You neglected to specify the model of your Olympus camera, so I'm assuming it uses SD/SDHC cards.

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.

Try to slide the little switch on the side of the card in the other direction. That switch is like a write protect for the card. Good Luck.

Can't Upload Pictures


Try putting the memory card in a USB card reader attached to your computer, which should see it as another drive. Write-protect the card first.

I can't get rid of Error message on my Konica Minolta Z5 : SD card seems blocked, even after reformatting, because some pix may have been rotated 90 degrees ???


The Z5 can display photos that it took. However, it cannot display edited photos. Due to the way the JPEG standard is defined, a rotation of the picture constitutes editing. If you rotate it four times, or once and then undo, it still constitutes editing. If you open a picture and then save it without doing anything else, it still counts as editing. Thus, if you want to put pictures back onto the card, you'll have to use the original pictures.
The proper workflow is to download the pictures to your computer. Then, if you're going to do any work on any of these pictures, do it on copies. This way, if you totally mess up an edit, you'll still have the original.

How to remove write protect from olympus xd card


You don't state whether you've tried using the tiny switch located on the xD card to unlock it.

If it is already in the unlocked position then push it fully to the locked position and then fully back again.

If this does not work then please report back for additional options.

in the menu there could be a protect setting you should also use the camera to format the card in you'r settings as well theres 2 menu's (on mine) 1 from the shoot a pic & 1 from you'r taken pic's, view photo's & open menu you should find the protect setting & in the regular menu is the format setting .

Protection Error when switching on SD-43HK


You will need to get a service manual and trouble shoot what amp. circuit is defective. if you have no solid state printed circuit board experience, you really should take this unit in to a repair shop and have it estimated. There is no quick fix for this unit. Good Luck.
