Take out your SD card and check to see that the switch is in the "unlocked" position.

What does card protected mean?


Wheb you have a SD, SDHC or SDXC memory card and you put the switch to the lock position, the card is protected, That means nothing can change the files that are stored on the card. Not by wiring, not by deleting and not by formatting. Keep the lock with up, towards the golden connection points.
On the picture the 64 GB card is unlocked. `the 32 GB card is locked 8ab871eb-243a-48dd-a8d8-58e5df95d568.jpg

Memory card locked


SD/SDHC 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.

You neglected to specify the model of your Olympus camera so I'm assuming it's one of those that use SD/SDHC cards.

I have a Kodak Easy Share C182 . I want to delete some pictures and it tells me to remove protection to delete, and it also tells me image is protected please tellmje stepby step how to clear this...


The most common cause for telling you that the card is locked is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position.
- see photo below:
Set the lock slider to locked or unlocked.man-3ds-sdcardlockswitch-287-181.png
  • The down position will enable write-protection, locking the card.
  • The up position will unlock the card, enabling you to save and erase data on the card

With my Canon Powershot A470 it keeps saying card locked


Have you tried to pull out the card and see if there is a little slide lock on the card? if so try sliding the slide lock to the unlock position. if it's already unlocked, try accessing the card via your computer. You might need to format the card if it's new. I've run into this problem in the past with some new memory cards.

Another solution you might try is putting the card into the camera and see if there's a function in the setup menu that will format or unlock the card from within the camera. It's a longshot but worth looking into.

Did you unlock the SD card or accidentally lock it again?. There is a switch on the SD card to unlock it. Try this and then let me know how you make out.
