Says sd card error


Are you sure it's an SD card? Even though SDHC cards will also fit into the slot, they will not work in the A540. If the card is larger than 2GB then it will not work.

Olympus tg-310 says write protect even though sd card is not on write protect


SD and Micro SD memory cards has a small slide switch on the edge of the card, which write protects data on the memory card or add photos to the SD card. Slide the switch from the LOCK position to the UNLOCK position, which is furthest away from the contacts.
You may have a software write protection enabled.

When I try to delete a picture/video it says WRITE PROTECT with a ! point


Hi there, Can you take pictures on it? It sounds like the SD card is locked. If you take the SD card out, you should see a slider on one of the sides. Push it up to unlock the card - then you should be able to delete. If it is already up, then there is a write protect option on your camera you need to disable. Alex

Card locked


Hi,
An SD memory card usually has a little white slider on the outside of it. I says in small letter, with a little arrow "LOCK" . Push the slider in the opposite direction of the arrow i.e. to unlock it.
If this is the case, then the camera should be able to communicate and write to the card.
There is also the possibility that the device in the camera which detects this slider is damaged. In that case the camera should be repaired. I think, though you will be OK moving the slider.

There is also the possibility that the card is corrupted. See the Link below

You may be restricted to using only SD cards, and many 4gb cards are actually SBHD. My sister had this problem with her camera and by putting in a new 2 gb SD card, her camera worked fine. You may need to shop online in order to find an SD card, but they're widely available online. It costs about the same for 2 2gb cards as one 4gb even though they aren't as convenient.

How do i unlock my sd card


There is a slider on the left hand side of an SD card which sets the card to Locked (lower position) or Unlocked (higher position - i.e. towards the top of the SD card). The first step is to check the position of this slider.

Note that the position of the slider does not affect the SD card in any way - it trips a switch inside the camera (or other SD reader). The slider MUST be in the upper position or the camera will say Card Locked - so if the slider has fallen off (they are very fragile!) the camera will assume it is in the Locked position.

Hi there
Check to make sure the cards write protect is off, take the card out of the camera, face the card towards you, look for a small white tab on the left hand side of the card, to unlock it push the tab down, it will be at the side of the card like this 59a6de4.jpg . Put it back in the camera and use the menu to format the card.
If the format fails then its a possibility that you will need a new card.


Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!
