SD 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.

Any size SD card will work. The capacity limit is with the card, not the camera. All the camera does is serve as a recorder/reader for the 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.

SOURCE: my camera is write protected

Dear Hannahboggs9,
I am not quite sure of what is the make of your Memory card however most of the memory cards have a small switch on side that could be toggled to make it write protected. I am sending you a link with picture to make it more clear.
http://media.digikey.com/photos/Toshiba%20Photos/SDM%20MEMORY%20SERIES.jpg
See the yellow slide lock on left edge of the above card...

Now if there is no lock on your card or if the above mentioned is not the problem then you might want to try formatting the card using your computer with "FAT" OR "FAT16" file system selected from the drop down (DO NOT SELECT FAT32).

If that too doesn't work then you might want to try with a different memory card.
This issue doesn't seem to be with camera.

In case any further assistance is required please write back and I would be glad to assist.

Regards,
Srinivas

SOURCE: coolpix p1500 says ''memory card is write protected''

Is there a slide switch on the side of the card? Move it to "unlocked" position.

SOURCE: Nikon Coolpix L11 Memory Card Error

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.

Camera says card is not formatted and asks if I want to format but neither yes or no works


The little write-protect-switch on your sd card is perhaps the problem - that it was shifted by vibration and stands protect instead of free. or that it already was not good set or by slide or re-connect it was moved , if not may be replace the sd memory card.

When I turn on my camera it says memory card is write protected, what does this mean?


There is usually a small lock switch on the left hand side of the card. make sure it is in the unlocked position.
Reformat the card in the camera if possible, if not, take the card out out of the camera and put in a card reader connected to a computer and format in in the file system required......
Se if that helps.........

Memory card is write protected.


Sd cards have a small switch on their side that locks the card to protect its contents from accidental deletion.
Move it and you will unlock it.

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.
