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.

hi..
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.
You need to unlock the card itself. Take it out and look for a tab on the left. It should be pushed up.

Hi,
For the message that show's on your camera here's is what your need to do. 1. Remove the memory card and check for the physical lock toggle.
2. Toggle the lock on and off.
3. Try blowing on the memory card and the memory card port so it will be cleaned somehow. here is the picture of the lock toggle of the SD memory card 919a7e0.png

I have a Nikon Coolpix s51 but my screen is cracked. I am trying to transfer the photos from my memory card and camera to my computer, but i am having trouble figuring out how to do that???


At this point, I would remove the card from the camera. If you don't already have a card reader, invest in one. Connect the card reader to the computer, then plug the card into the reader. You can use Nikon Transfer ( http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61 ) or the operating system's drag&drop to transfer the pictures to your computer.

If you have pictures stored in the camera's internal memory and the screen is at least partially legible, you can try to select "Copy" from the Setup menu to transfer pictures from the internal memory to the memory card before you follow the suggestions in the first paragraph.

Memory card write protected


Check the side of the memory card. Some of them have a little switch that turns on/off write protection. If there is no switch, you can try to format it in the computer first, then put it in the camera and format it again.

Does your MMC have a Lock/Unlock swap features? if it does. Then Unlock it. Or, you might want to format it.

''Memory card is write protected''


Remove the SD memory card from the camera and move the small switch on the side to the unlock position. That should solve the problem.
