Question about Kodak EasyShare C330 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera no longer working

Each time the camera is switched on an image of a memory card appears and a message saying the memory card is protected and advises that I need to reset the switch on the card. I can only review photos I have already taken. The camera is about 3 years old.

Your memory card must have had the switch moved from locked to unlocked. To fix this, removed the SD card from your camera. Look on the side and you will find a little switch. One end of the switch says locked the other end says locked. Move the switch from locked to unlocked. Replace it in your camera and turn it back on. Try it and let me know if I can help more.

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.

My camera says my memory card is locked but the button on the side is not locked how do i retrieve my pictures i have a canon powershot a480


Issue: [Memory card locked] message appears on the screen.
Solution: Change the memory card lock switch to the normal setting

The SD card has a lock switch to prevent existing data from being erased. To record images or movies this switch must be in the normal (non lock) position. Different brands of SD memory cards may identify this switch differently. Regardless the procedure should be the same. Please remove the card from the camera and ensure that the switch is not in the locked position. sdcardlocked.jpg

You should be able to retrieve photos, but not writing or erasing if the switch is switched to write protect.

If it's not functioning correctly, the camera may need service at Canonusa.com.

My samsung s630 says the memory is full. I cleared photos from the sd card and internal memory, but still can only take four pictures in the lowest quality and size setting.


Memory card might gone bad but can do this following troubleshooting step. Formatting a memory ** This is used for formatting the memory. If you run [Format] on the memory, all images, including the protected images, will be deleted. Be sure to download important images to your PC before formatting the memory. Sub menus
[No] : The memory will not be formatted. Press the menu button three times and the menu display will disappear.
[Yes] : A [Processing!] message appears and the memory will be formatted. If you run FORMAT in Play mode, a [No Image!] message will appear. 1d36119.png
Be sure to run [Format] on the following types of memory card.
- A new memory card, or an unformatted memory card
- A memory card that has a file this camera can't recognize or one that has been taken from another camera.
- Always format the memory card using this camera. If you insert a memory card that has been formatted using other cameras, memory card readers, or PCs, you will get a [Card Error!] message. ** There might be bad sectors on your memory card.

I downloaded some pictures to my school computer and now my camera won't take any pictures. Message is Memory card write protected.


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.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

Cannot delete photos" Card Protected" appears on screen


There should be a small switch on the memory card that allows users to lock it so no one can delete pictures on it. Take the memory card out of the camera and look for this switch on the card and make sure it is not in the locked position.

Write protect message appears on screen


Sounds as if the memory card may be corrupted. In order to remove the write protect, make sure you have downloaded and saved all of the images from the memory card to your computer and then having the card in the camera you will need to run the format option and this will permanently remove the write protect as well as all of the images from the card.
The card should be able to be used again after the write protect is removed.
