How to delete protected files on ixus 750

Somehow, I have managed to press the protect command in the menu of my Ixus 750 for two pictures only. I've gone back to the menu and pressed protect again but cannot erase them. I've now downloaded all the other pictures except these two which I can't delete. Any ideas on how to erase them..or undo the protect function?
Many thanks
Lucy Sommers.

Hi,

If it's on the memory card then try this.

It might not work though...but worth a shot.

Hey thaze,
According to the manufacturer you need to press the playback button, which looks like a triangle pointing to the right. Next you need to hold down the func. /set button, and press the menu button. Next you need to use the up/down arrows, or the right/left arrows to choose the desired language and then press the func. /set button. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

For any self respecting programmer/hacker, the instructions at http://users.utu.fi/paanni/camera.html maybe close to what you want.

I assume that you know that there is a tiny tiny on-off switch on the edge of each SD card. If they are locked in the off position....

I have a canon ixus 70 camera and cannot delete protected photos


You have to select each protected photo and and unprotect it.
Of course the 'protect' function is there to protect photos from (accidental) deletion.

Some pictures are "protect"...I cannot erase them,


Press the MENU button, select the Playback tab (right-pointing arrow), select [Protect], and press the FUNC/SET button.

Full details are in the "Protecting images" section of the manual (page 116 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download a copy at

How do you delete pics and movies ?


To delete one image or movie, go into 'play' mode, go to it and press 'down'; it's labelled with a trashcan (UK dustbin) icon. You'll get a confirmation dialog.

To delete all photos and movies on the card other than those protected, go into play mode, and press 'menu'. One of the options will be to erase all the photos on the card. You may need to scroll down a bit, if you can't find it comment back and I'll download the manual to find its exact location.

I'd like to delete all the pics on the card, but its not allowing me to.


Check thath the pictures are not 'protected' and the card is not in 'lock'-position. If you're not able to delete the pictures in the camera, use a card reader and delete them in the computer. You can also 'move' the pictures during download instead of just 'copy' them. This will clear the card. Also formatting the card will erase any files on the card.

Here's the manual (free to download):

http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/CANON/IXUS%20700-_E

Protection / unprotection of pictures is dealt with on page 130.

Note that FORMATTING a card will delete ALL pictures (irrespective of protection).

Hope this helps

Power Shot A630 says card locked, will not take or delete pics


There is a switch on the side of the SD card, slide to unlock position then go to the SETUP menu, format the card (before doing that, make sure you have saved all pictures from the SD card to your computer)

Memory Card Error


Check in the Manual that the camera can accept 2Gb.
If it say it can then return the card for replacement.
