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.

How do I delete all photos on my chip


Based on what you have said, it appears that the write-protect has been activated on the card. With the card's label facing you and the corner cut-off to the right, you'll see a little slot just a bit above the halfway point on the card. In that slot is a tab. If the tab is down toward the bottom of the card, it's in the write-protect or locked position. You cannot delete anything while the card is in the write-protect mode. Simply slide the tab to the top of the slot to unlock it and your delete function should work.

If it does not, you've got another problem which you may be able to fix by formatting the card. Once again, you cannot format a card in the write-protected mode.

If you can't format it...which will delete any pictures on the card... then the card is probably bad and should be replaced. Cards are cheap and really not worth spending a lot of time trying to solve the problem.

If you can't format a new card, then you've got a camera problem and it's time to call or contact Nikon support.

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.

How to delete protected images


If you want to delete everything on the card, the easiest way is to format the card. This will wipe out all images (and any other data as well) on the card, whether protected or not. The Format command is in the Setup menu. Details on page 32 of the manual.
To delete individual protected pictures, unprotect them first. From the Playback menu select Protect/Unprotect (the key icon). Details on page 84.

How do you format an sd memory card?


Hi,

You should be able to use the camera's menu to format the SD card, just go into the setting menu to format it.

Also make sure the write protect lock is off on the SD card itself. To remove the write protect lock, take the memory card out of the camera, face the card towards you, look for a small white tab on the left hand side of the card, to unlock it push the tab up to unlock it, it will be at the side of the card like this 59a6de4.jpg .

I downloaded some pictures to my school computer and now my camera won't take any pictures. Message is Memory card write protected.


SD 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.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

Cards not working with camera


If you used the SD/MMC memory card in another brand of camera or device, you may need to format the card in your new EasyShare digital camera. (You may have noticed a "Memory Card Needs Formatting" message when you inserted the card.) CAUTION: Formatting deletes all pictures and videos, including those that are protected. Removing a card during formatting may damage the card. To format the SD/MMC memory card or the internal memory of the camera: Transfer images to the computer before formatting the memory card. Press the camera Menu button. Highlight SETUP MENU, and then press the OK button. Highlight FORMAT, and then press the OK button. Highlight an option - MEMORY CARD (deletes everything on the card), CANCEL (exits without formatting), or INTERNAL MEMORY (deletes everything in internal memory). Press the OK button. Highlight Continue, and then press the OK button. Wait until formatting is finished before removing the card. When formatting is complete, the SETUP MENU is displayed. Press the Menu button to exit the menu.
