If you have tried the button on the SD card, and it didn't solve the problem, you may have a problem with the SD card slot. You need to open up the camera and check the switch on the SD card slot.

kilgourt.gif



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.



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.


For non-SD cards: Format the card

The data on the memory card may be corrupted.

WARNING: Formatting will delete all the files in the device. Backup all your data before formatting.

Hi,

This should help fix the issue,

You will have to open MY Computer or COMPUTER from Start button. Make sure the SD Card is connected to PC.

1) In My Computer, right click on the drive letter of your SD card and
2) Eject it.
3) Then pull the card out and stick it back in.
4) Try to write to the card. If it works, Proceed with your copying.
5) If it DIDN'T work, repeat steps 1 through 4 ( 2-3 times )

If this does not work, there is alternate method.

The Memory card has a write protect slider on the side. Try putting tape around the card to make sure that the slider thing does not slip into write protect mode when inserting the card.

D-395open lens you get a blue screen says write protect?


Check for a small slider on the memory card - it sounds like the card is set to "protect" mode, which means you can't write to it. Slide the little slider on the card, reinsert and try it again.

First check the memory card to see if the lock tab is in the UNLOCK position. On the top left of the memory card is a slide the moves up and down. The slide should be in the up position for it to be unlocked. A locked memory card could cause the camera to read a CARD PROTECT error message.
If you still receive an error message, verify that you are inserting the card correctly so that the spring locks in as you fully insert it. When performed correctly an Icon will appear in the lower right hand corner of the LCD screen. Also try inserting the card while the camera is on.
The memory card may also need to be formatted through the camera’s settings-- Note: Formatting will delete all files, so be sure to transfer any important files to your computer before doing so
To Format: Insert the memory card into the camera and press the mode button to get to the mode screen. Enter into Tools/SETTINGS and find FORMAT. Once you select format you will receive a YES or NO option. Select YES and you will see a FORMATTING message. Once the formatting is complete, see if the camera reads the card and functions properly

On your memory card there's a tiny slider button. Slide it along to the other end and see if that helps.
