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 Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to memory/format- right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear all the images from the card and then it can be used again.

How can i get protect write off my camera


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.

Photo is locked on camara unable to remove key symbol


I don't think there's a single manufacturer that makes this clear. But let me tell you their little secret... whatever you did to protect it - do it again. It's a toggle function! They wouldn't want to put "protect/unprotect" in the menu system instead of just "protect", it might look 'cluttered'. Of course, it might be more useful too.

Hi I am soooo annoyed with my camera, I want to download images from my Olympus FE-120 to my pc, but I cant get my camera to go into 'pc' mode, so I get an error message saying the Olympus software cant...


Sounds like you've been taking pictures with no card in the camera so all of your pics are on the camera's internal memory. This is the cause of so many problems that I cannot begin to tell you some of the stories I've heard. You need to get a memory card. Then, you can go into the menu of the camera and find "copy" which will give you the option to copy the internal memory to the card. After you download the pics from the card, with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory and then promise to never use it again.

I hve the write protect problem on my fe 320 olympus. its not allowing me 2 tak pic neither allowing me 2 copy them..


It's most likely that your card is locked. Take out the card and on one side you should find a small slider with 2 symbols (an open and a closed pad lock). Move the slider to the open pad lock position and that should solve your problem. It's a feature on some (mainly SD) cards which lets you lock the card to avoid unintentional deletion of data. Hope that helps

Olympus FE-370 I have 10 pictures on the camera (tok pics without realising there was no card inside!), but I cant seem to save them to the memory card - I have lost the lead for the camera. Is there...


See page 34 of the manual (available for free download from Olympus below).

http://www.olympusamerica.com/files/FE-370_X-880_C-575_Instruction_Manual_EN.pdf

Or in short, select the "Setup" (tools) menu, and then select "Backup". You'll need to have the memory card installed for the transfer.

Removal of write protection


Sounds like you will need to format the internal memory of the camera. This will permanently erase all the data from the memory and then you will be able to use it again. To format the memory: Press the Ok button - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to card 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 memory can be used again.

Picture lock


Protected pictures cannot be erased using [ERASE],
[SEL. IMAGE] or [ALL ERASE], but they are all erased by
formatting.
• Go to Playback mode in the camera. Select the picture to be unlocked with the left or right arrow buttons, and to remove the protection select OFF with the up or down arrow button.
