Question about Toshiba PDR-4300 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Card protect message doesn't allow any activity with camera how to remove?

My Toshiba digital PDR-4300 suddenly suddenly shows a "card protected" message and will not allow erasing any photos, taking pictures, or formatting the card. Troubleshooting guide says to "remove write protect: but does not say how to do it. Under Protect Photos section you are instructed to go to page 35 to find out how to remove write protect but the page is concerned only with remote controllers which I do not have. How do I remove write protect to be able to take a photo again and erase the card?

    Thanks for the easy fix. I should have remembered from the computer "floppy disc" days that write protect was on the disc and applied that thought to the card, but no, I thought it was the camera itself.

Hi there
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 down, it will be at the side of the card like this card protect message doesn't allow any activity wi - 59a6de4.jpg .
Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

How to turn off write protect?


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.

Inaccessible options


I downloaded the owners manual for the 4300 and on pages 99 and 100, it has detailed instructions for doing those functions. Also note, that it says to hold down the erase button for 2 seconds to bring up the menu you need. If you have followed those instructions and can not do a format, you should check the SD media card and make sure that you have not accidently moved the "write protect" switch on the card. If it is write protected, you can not format.

Card Error Message


1. Always choose reliable quality SD Cards. Toshiba Digital Cameras are tested for maximum performance with Toshiba SD Cards, Delkin SD Cards and Panasonic SD Cards. These are leading brands in the development of standard SD technology. Performance by other brands of SD cards may vary. 2. Check the LOCK switch on the SD Card. The camera can not save images to an SD Card when it is in the lock protected position. 3. If the SD Card is NEW, it may be necessary to FORMAT the card. This only applies to NEW SD Cards. If you format a card with images, all images will be erased. You can FORMAT your card periodically to maximize capacity and erase 'unseen' files, please be sure to download all images before choosing FORMAT as all images will be erased. 4. The Toshiba PDR-3310 is designed for use with SD Cards. MultiMedia Cards are similar in size and shape to SD Cards, although with close inspection you will find that SD Cards have a different 'PIN" connection configuration, are slightly thicker in size, and have a manual slide LOCK switch on the side. The PDR-3310 may work with some MultiMedia Cards, but is not designed or guaranteed to accept MultiMedia Cards. Please be sure to look for SD Cards from Toshiba, Panasonic and Delkin, the leaders in SD Card Technology.
