There is a write-protection tab on the mini sd card HOLDER. Every time you insert this into your PC or card holder, this tab slides to the write protect position. Either keep resetting, inserting & reinserting until it doesn't slide or tape it down.
There is nothing wrong with the mini sd card. Simply locate the write protection key and push it.
The mini sd card has some error: Go for a low level formatting.
The card has virus: Remove the virus. The link for the steps is present in the related link at the bottom of the article.
SD vs SDHC is a question I get alot. First let me explain your issue. Unless your CARD READER is rated for SDHC chances are its an older model and cant handle the card, even with driver updates. You will need to check the manufacturers website of the device you are using as a reader to see if there are newer drivers. If its a laptop go to the manufacturers page and and be sure and choose Windows XP as your OS. Ok, now to the difference. SD cards are called solid state memory. The internal workings of each hasnt changed much except that the SD card used standard file formatting that was understandable in Windows XP and earlier operating systems. the SDHC (HC stands for High Capacity) uses the same architecture in teh card but changes the way data is stored and read that enables it to hold more data on same size device. (note architecture means design of card type not inside guts) Thus your system and Operating system may not be capable of addressing the new coding and file system changes on teh SDHC cards. Many older cameras (2008 and before) dont recognize SDHC cards either. Good news is they make an SD card (plain) in a 4 gig and you may be able to replace yours at the retailer with teh correct one needed (unless you bought via ebay or other method) Yours is a good question and is often asked, so dont feel bad in anyway. Just look at it this way.. you learned the lesson recently when the pricing between the two is about the same.. I learned the lesson 2 years ago when an SDHC cost about 80$ compared to 19 $ for a normal SD... SMILE!
Try the card in your computer using a SDHC card reader to see if it will read your picture files. If that doesn't work then you'll have to shop for data recovery software on line. Ontrack Data Recovery is a very reputable recovery company. They offer recovery services by sending them your card or by purchasing their do-it-yourself software.
I'm not sure but, my thoughts on the matter.
The camera my not support a 4 gig memory card, check the website or your owners manual for the size of memory cards supported. See what sizes of Memory they sell for it.
Formatting is NOT a big deal. You just have the camera do all that, just find where option that is.
