Re: my camera says write protect and won't let me take...
Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Ok button - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to card setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect message and the card can be used again.

Sounds like the card has died. unfortunatly this can happen. and could be caused by a number of things including static.
you can maybe try a disk repair in windows.
hit your windows key and press r at the same time. in the command line type CMD and hit enter, it will open up a DOS window. type CHKDSK ?: /f where teh question mark is, is the drive letter that windows has assigned the card when you insert it. if it is an error that is repairible this might work.
Sounds like you are keeping way too many pictures on the card. That's not safe. Download them to your computer using a separate card reader if necessary. Then format the card in the camera and start fresh.

Protected pictures cannot be erased using [ERASE], [SEL. IMAGE] or [ALL ERASE], but they are all erased by formatting. • Go to Playback mode in the camera. Select the picture to be unlocked with the left or right arrow buttons, and to remove the protection select OFF with the up or down arrow button.
If your pic is in the locked mode (Green Key Icon). Bring up picture. Press menu. Press (Playback Menu) and hit OK. Press OK again and it should bring up the pic with option of off or on. Hit off to unlock and you should be able to delete the pic.
