    There may be software on the camera that added write protection to the card. What model Nikon do you have?

There is a little metal piece inside some cameras that is related to read/write of the memory card.
It has been reported that displacement of the part, whether bent or moved out of position, will cause the card read/write error.

If you have tried inserting different cards, and it still does not write, it could be related to this problem.

A temporary solution is to make sure that the tiny switch on the side of the memory card is in the unlock position and tape it up with a scotch tape, just like you do to the floppy disk in the old days.
It works for a number of reported cases, though no guaranteed, it may work for you if you want to give it a try.

I downloaded memory card onto computer, memory card say procted & Reset switch on memory card message, how do i clear it


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.

Not reading the memory card


You need to get rid of the pics in the internal memory. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions. Now, your card should work properly.

Hi..

Suddenly the card you have inserted is locked so that's why is says write protected. To unlocked the it get or remove your card from your camera. You can see in your memory card there is a small button her try to slide the button to unlocked. Insert your memory card back to your camera and try to take a picture it will take a picture.

Good luck!

Thanks for using fixya
