I cannot put the memory card into unprotected mode again. How can I put it back, because I cannot take shots or even edit some settings if the card is protected. Please answer.

    i cant take a picture or delete any of my pictures, because it says "Memory Card is Write Protected" how do i unprotect it so i can take pictures again?

  • Anonymous Jun 10, 2008

    i just fixed mine. it took forever to fidure out. on the sd card there is a little peice that moves up and down so that it locks it so you can not delete files. all you need to do to unprotect it is slide that little plastic peice to the other side.

    I cannot because I am unfamiliar with your camera and card.
    I can suggest two more things.
    1. look up[Google?] the type of card you have and try to see if you can glean any information from there - some cards have a tiny switch, other rely on a camera switch.
    Does your camera have a switch with a 'Key sybol on it?
    What sort of computer do you have that does not 'know' Adobe document reader?
    It is universal I believe.
    and is free to download.
    Finally go the the customer support at Panasonic - where you may be able to download some FAQ's to search or a Q&A box.

  • john ash

    the switch is self evident on either he card or the camera in they have such a thing.
    As staed spme cards do have them other do not
    the same with the camera there is a switch with a 'Key' symbol if hr has one.
    If you cannot see such a thing then your model does not have it.
    If you stll cannot locate a source for your problems try the customer support at Panasonic

SOURCE: how to unprotect the memory card

Memory card has a slider switch which prevents write access. Move switch to other position.

SOURCE: unprotect memory card

Hi,

To set the memory card in unprotected mode, you have to do the following.

On the side of the SD chip, there is a little switch. Shift the switch away from "lock", then insert the card back into the camera.
This unprotects the card. You should now be able to take pictures and videos.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If this does not solve the problem, then it is very likely that the SD card is faulty. I would recommend using Panasonic, Lexar or Sandisk memory cards.

~1 Panasonic SD card

How do I unprotect pics on a 0lympus c-765


As it was the camera that put the protection on ..You need to put the card into the camera..And ..UN-TICK each one to unprotect them...The idea of the protected photos is so you cant erase them when you format the card.

It sounds as if the card was not formatted for the camera before it was put to use. My suggestion is that you attempt to download the images that you do have to the computer, then format the memory card. Always format a new card and after each time you download pictures from the card to the computer.

Hello! I have a problem with my cam. When I put the memorycard into the cam, it says - memory protect! What does it mean and what should I do? Thanks in advance!!


Actually your memory card is 'memory-protected' ! You cannot use it without making it 'unprotected'.

Try these steps to unprotect it :

1. Remove the memory card from the camera.

2. On the down-end (which faces outside when it's inside the camera) of the card, you will find a small sliding switch.

3. Move the switch to the opposite direction (left or right) of the present position.

4. Now, it is unprotected and you can use it!

please rate me if it helps....tc! :)

On most sd cards there is a physical (tiny) sliding switch on the memory card. Here is a picture of a standard SD card. On the left you can see the gray switch in the unlocked position. Hope that helps. -WN

How to unprotect the memory card


If I understand correctly what your asking what is the brand and size of the memory card. If I were to take a stab at it right now I would assume there is a lock/unlock switch on the card. Have you had this problem with the card before?
Good luck,
