Canon XSi tells card write protected but card is unlocked

Camera was working fine last night. When turned on this morning the camera's LCD displayed Card Write protected. I took the sd card out and it was NOT on lock. put it back in and attempted to take a shot and it displayed again. I tried a different SD card and it displayed the same error. I tried reformatting both of the cards and then attempted to shoot with both cards and again it displayed that there was a card write protected. I assumed that it was the cards, but wanted to be sure so i took both cards out and put them in my friend's nikon D80 and they both worked fine. I put my cards that i thought were giving me the error into his D80 and it too worked fine. I put his card into my Canon XSI and it displayed the same error. Last thing i tried was resetting all settings back to normal and then shooting. Again.. Same error. Please advise. card is not locked but still the camera says is a protected memory card... please help

How do i sent my canon e0s card write protect to unlock


Look at the memory card. SD and 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.

When I turn on my camera to shot a picture, it will not let me. Instead a screen pops up that says "card write protected." What does this mean?


Look at your memory card. SD and 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.
If this doesn't do it, try a different card.

Camera says card write protected


I just figured it out- on my memory card there's a small "switch" on the left hand side that you can slide up and down. Make sure that this is up the top, not down towards where it says Lock. If it's down, this makes the card Write Protected.
