SD/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.

SOURCE: Nikon Coolpix 5200 Getting Message ""Memory Card is Write Protected"

Inspect your SD card carefully. Some SD cards come with a write-protect lock switch on the side of the card. When looking at an SD card from the top there is one required notch on the right side (the side with the diagonal notched corner) and on the left side there is usually a switch. This is the write-protect switch. When this write-protect switch is in the down position (away from the end that is inserted) then it is write protected and read-only. When the switch is in the up position it is write enabled.

Take your memory card out of the camera and switch the position of the little "lock" tab. That should fix it and you can start saving images.

SOURCE: The camera says Memory card is write protected and

If it is an SD memory card, check for a little white tab on the left side. Chances are that somehow it got pushed down to the 'write protect' mode. Move it back up and you should be good to go! Good luck.

SOURCE: "memory card is write protected"?? but it's not the memory card!

It's not the camera. 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.

I have a Nikon D5300. I can see the photo count number increasing, but I cannot view the images and they are not going on the SD card. Where are they? The SD card is not full.


many small Nikon cameras have memory to store images ON THE CAMERA. If you have a memory card installed that the CAMERA CAN READ it will put images on the card. if the memory card is corrupted the camera will not use it.

First Backup all IMAGES on Memory Card to COMPUTER make sure you saved ALL images. This is IMPORTANT.

After you SAVED all images you PUT Memory card back in camera and FORMAT it (Format is in TOOL Menu that looks like a wrench)

Now if you can take an images and it saves to memory card you are done. To see if they go to MEMORY CARD. Turn off camera and remove MEMORY CARD and Check.

If it STILL does not work you may have a defective memory card.

I have a Kodak Easy Share C182 . I want to delete some pictures and it tells me to remove protection to delete, and it also tells me image is protected please tellmje stepby step how to clear this...


The most common cause for telling you that the card is locked is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position.
- see photo below:
Set the lock slider to locked or unlocked.man-3ds-sdcardlockswitch-287-181.png
  • The down position will enable write-protection, locking the card.
  • The up position will unlock the card, enabling you to save and erase data on the card

I accidentally protected a picture on my camera nikon d60, how to unprotect it and delete it


There are 2 ways to do it. Firstly you can format the card - this will delete all images, including protected ones. Second method is to display the image in full frame view mode (or highlight it in thumbnail view) and then press the AE-L /AF-L button. This will remove the protection - or protect an unprotected image.
Hope that helps

If that doesn't work, try another card.

Write Protection: There is a tab on the memory card so you will you need to remove it from the camera and change the position of this tab to "unlock" it. Clear Memory: To clear it, first make sure all of your images are off of it (on your computer) and then use the camera to "format" the memory card. Formatting the card erases ALL OF YOUR IMAGES - so be sure you've got them saved! This function will delete anything on the memory card and give you all the space available.
