Inserted 4 GB memory card. new camera trying to take a pic and I keep getting the message card protected.


Memory cards particularly SD or SDHC have an option to protect the files from accidentally deletion. This is done by moving the small part of the memory card to the 'lock or unlock' position. Try to look for this small switch on the side of your memory card.

I have just inserted a new memory card but error message 'out of memory' appears?


You may have to format the card using your camera or computer. Remove the card from the camera and insert it in a card reader preferably on your computer and see if it will read the card there. You may get a message telling you to format the card. You may also have a write protect switch on the card that needs to be moved to the opposite position. Good luck!

I get problem with card when i inserte it it gives message card


Look at your 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.

Hello Laurakeeney1

I would check to make sure your SD card in not Set to Write Protected, if it is not follow this link for a Flash Memory format utility that I use to fix any problems i have with Flash memory

First check the memory card to see if the lock tab is in the UNLOCK position. On the top left of the memory card is a slide the moves up and down. The slide should be in the up position for it to be unlocked. A locked memory card could cause the camera to read a CARD PROTECT error message.
If you still receive an error message, verify that you are inserting the card correctly so that the spring locks in as you fully insert it. When performed correctly an Icon will appear in the lower right hand corner of the LCD screen. Also try inserting the card while the camera is on.
The memory card may also need to be formatted through the camera’s settings-- Note: Formatting will delete all files, so be sure to transfer any important files to your computer before doing so
To Format: Insert the memory card into the camera and press the mode button to get to the mode screen. Enter into Tools/SETTINGS and find FORMAT. Once you select format you will receive a YES or NO option. Select YES and you will see a FORMATTING message. Once the formatting is complete, see if the camera reads the card and functions properly

Nikon Coolpix 5200 Getting Message ""Memory Card is Write Protected"


Inspect your SD card carefully. Some SD cards come with a write-protect lock switch on the side of the card. When looking at an SD card from the top there is one required notch on the right side (the side with the diagonal notched corner) and on the left side there is usually a switch. This is the write-protect switch. When this write-protect switch is in the down position (away from the end that is inserted) then it is write protected and read-only. When the switch is in the up position it is write enabled.
