There is usually a switch on the adapter you are using that is there for write protection. The Micro sd card does not have one. Make sure it is not in the lock "position". See this website for more on memory cards and common problems. http://www.retire-asia.com/microsd.shtml I cut a little piece from the site that might help you
"There is no switch on the Micro SD card itself, but a standard-size-SD adapter (which the MicroSD needs to be plugged into for use with a card reader) and SD cards such as the SanDisk 4/8GB have a sliding write-protect switch similar to a 3.5 inch floppy disk. Data cannot be written if the slider tab is in the 'lock' position. The tab could be damaged or missing altogether. This is probably the first thing to check if you have an SD card write error problem. Using sticky tape (Scotch tape etc) to cover the switch slot might solve this problem, but it may need two or more layers before it works. Some SD adapters need the tab to be placed somewhere between the lock and open positions before data can be written to the card."

Even though i have a brand new sd memory card my Fujifilm Finepix Z camera still says "protected card" and won't let me do anything at all


Look at the memory card. 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.

Problems with formatting memory card


I'm guessing you're trying to format a new 4GB SDHC card? If so, am sorry to say that your camera was designed before the SDHC format came out. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different.

You'll need to instead purchase a standard SD card (those that are 2GB or less). Forunately these are very inexpensive these days, with 2GB cards going for around $6 with shipping.

But if you must use 4GB, Transcend makes a 4GB standard SD card, but I can't guarantee that it will work with your camera as anything above 2GB for standard SD may have compliance issues.
