Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
A picture in projected status needs to be deletred
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.

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.

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.
Please don't hesitate to ask more questions if this is needed. Thank You for using FixYa.

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).
