Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Menu button - right arrow to Setup- right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect message and the card can be used again.

How do I unprotect pics on a 0lympus c-765


As it was the camera that put the protection on ..You need to put the card into the camera..And ..UN-TICK each one to unprotect them...The idea of the protected photos is so you cant erase them when you format the card.

How to remove protected pic


i glanced through the manual but didn't see anything specific. usually the same process as 'protecting' can be used to remove protection from an image or images. additionally, formatting the card will remove even protected images*.

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.

Are you getting an error message or any other indication from the camera? Have you checked the memory card to see whether it's write-protected? What exposure mode(s)? What shutter release mode(s)?

My camera says card protected and won't record.


There is a tiny switch on the left side of the card. One setting is to lock it....the opposite way is to open it for taking pics. It's a safety so you can't accidentallybigdtexan_1.jpg delete any pictures, but also won't let you take any more. (see pic)

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

My memory stick is protected


Hello,
Just wanted to know if there is a slide switch anywhere on the memory card? .. See the image below where it says LOCK:

Toggle the switch if there is any and that should help.
