Re: SD Protected???

Hi, the SD Memory card has a slider tab that has been switched. I don't know if you are familiar with floppy disk, but they also had a tab in which you could move in order to protect and unprotect the disk. The SD Memory card has the same feature. Good luck.

Re: SD Protected???

Pop out the SD memory card. look for a tiny switch (lever) on the card and move it to the other position (the position that does not say "lock") and try again

What is the capacity sd card for a polaroid izone 550

izone 550W has 16MB own internal memory. In addition it takes SD-cards. I'd say since it's quite a new model it'll handle at least 8GB card which is more than adequate (over 2000 frames on highest resolution)

Look at your memory card. 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.

Izone 550 senses SD card, but won't accomodate or write to it...

I would suggest the format option in the menu. i posted the manual it gives step by step getting to the format option. if it works on one but not the other even after formatting in problematic camera. I would suggest getting a different brand/size. There's a 1gig liimit, but i am currently using a panasonic 2 gig and it seems to be working at its stated size. Although i haven't filled it to see if any problems occurr.
Hope this helps.

Flash detail

Use the right arrow button on the arrow pad. There is a little pic of a lighting bold beside a pic of a camera on the top left hand corner. Push the right arrow button and look at that lightning bolt you will see it changing. There are three different ones. One has a ling through it and that means no flash on had an "A" on it that stands for automatic and then you will see just a pic of the bolt without anything. Not to sure what means either. Hope this helps.
