Unprotect the picture first. In playback mode, scroll to the protected picture, then press the AE-L/AF-L button on the back of the camera.

SOURCE: how to protect pictures so they do not get deleted

Best way is to only delete them 1 by one. Another is to transfer files (pictures) to your computer delete the ones you don't want, format your card and then put the ones you want to keep on your camera back. You can't delete just a few pictures. I carry 3 memory cards. one just has the pictures I want to show people. I load that card from my computer. The other 2 are like great big rolls of film that let me take lots and lots of pictures without the worry of running out of film. I transfer the pictures I want to show people on my camera to the third one and keep the other 2 erased. Most of my pictures are only on my computer and backed up on DVD's.

SOURCE: When I try to delete

What camera? What kind of card? SD cards have a sliding switch along one edge. Slide it away from the contacts.

SOURCE: my memory card is write protected. when i turn on

Hi. Thanks for your question.


SOLUTION 1 - Unlock the memory card.

There is a Lock switch on the left side of the SD card. Make sure the Lock switch is slid up (unlock position). You will not be able to modify or delete the contents on the memory card if it is locked.

NOTE: If you are using a microSD/microSDHC card or a miniSD/miniSDHC card, insert the card into the standard SD adapter.


SOLUTION 2 - Toggle the lock switch.

If the lock switch is not on lock:
1. Slide the switch up and down. Repeat this 3 times.
2. Let it stay on the Lock position for 30 seconds.
3. Slide the switch up to unlock the card.
4. Try to transfer files into the device.

SOURCE: i need to delete some pictures from my nikon

Take out the memory chip and push the little tab down...or up. The opposite direction its in. If you look on the side edge of the chip you'll see a little **** next to a small tab (usually light blue, maibe red, might even be black). Once you moved it (up or down) you'll notice the little **** is now covered by the tab and there is a new **** where the tab was (basically the **** is now on the opposite side of the tab).
If there is no **** don't worry, some are designed different. If the **** is visible you can delete pics, if it's covered by the tab then it is protected so you can't delete any (or vise versa).

I want to delete protected pictures


If the picture on the camera is protected, unprotect the picture first. In playback mode, scroll to the protected picture, then press the AE-L/AF-L button on the back of the camera.

If the memory card is protected, take the card out of the camera. 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.

How to unlock a photo in camara


The protect function allows a user to protect a picture from accidental deletion. To unprotect a picture on your camera, scroll to the protected picture that you want to delete, then press the Menu button (the button to the right of the Play button.) Scroll down the menu and you should come to an option that allows you to Protect/Unprotect the picture. Since your picture is currently protected, deselect that option. You should then be able to delete the picture normally.

Alternatively, you could also format the memory card, however this deletes ALL photos and data you have on the memory card. If you are trying to completely clear the memory, this is the best way. After turning on your camera, simply press the Menu button, scroll to Setup, then scroll down to Format. Select Format, it will ask you if you want to format the memory card, or the camera's built-in memory. Format whichever one you want to clear, if you are using a memory card then your pictures are stored on the memory card. It will take a few seconds to format.

Hope this helps.

I dont know how to delete a protected picture off my canon power shot a470 camera. Can you help?


You have to unprotect it first. It's a bit confusing because the menu item probably only says "Protect..." but it also takes care of unprotecting too. Go into the menu for "Protect..." and navigate to the protected one. Whatever button you press to switch the protected status (it's the SET button on my Canon) you can use it to turn the protection off as well. When you exit the protection mode, you can delete it.

Deleting protected pictures


"Protecting Photographs from Deletion

In full-frame, zoom, and thumbnail playback, the button can be used to protect photographs

from accidental deletion. Protected files can not be deleted using the button or

the Delete option in the playback menu, and have DOS "read-only" status when viewed on

a Windows computer. Note that protected files will be deleted when the memory card is
formatted"

This is from the nikon website. You can down load the entire users manual here:

Pictures were protected for a temporary photo shoot now I would like to have them unprotected to delete. How does one go about deleting pictures from a Nikon D60?


To unprotect a picture, while viewing the picture press the protect button (marked with a key) to the right of the viewfinder. To delete the picture, press the delete button (marked with a trashcan) below the multiselector.

Need to delete protected pictures


Try to remove first the memory card of your camera. After you remove the card you can see a small button at the side of the memory card. Just slide the small button to unprotected. Insert your memory card back to your camera and try to delete pictures.

you should have turned on the protection status on while taking pictures by default. to switch of this status all you have to do is in the preview mode of the camera select that particular picture. now press the menu button. you can see a variety of options there. in those there is an option protection status of "protect this photo". you can turn it off there.
