Question about Fuji FinePix A201 Digital Camera

How can I change the "protected card" so that I can once again take pictures - and how can I keep this from happening again?

How do you get off protected card I have used my camera with great results - I use it 3/4 times per week and have neverhad a problem. However, today when I attempted to take a picture, I turned the camera on and received a message "! protected card" and it will not take pictures. I have no idea what has caused this or how to make the camera usable. Please help. kay Zoretic

Pull your sd card out of the camera... there may be a lock tab along the left side of the card (label facing you and metal tabs up) the lock position is labeled... you can change it with your fingernail... make sure it's unlocked...

Let me know if you're up and running...

Well I have got a picture on my panasonic DMC-F3 camera and it wont let me delete my picture it keeps and saying this picture cannot be deleted can you please help me?


Hope you are trying to do this after downloading the software you have got with the camera. Hope the memory card is not protected. You can check these once and try again.

Memory card filled and I took more pictures. Seemed to put those on the internal memory. What happened too or how can I recover the memory card pictures?


Probably one of two solutions.
First, the memory card should have all the pictures intact. If you are using the camera to review, you may need to just keep going back until the memory card photos show.
Another possibility is that the internal memory supersedes viewing the card memories. You may have to run a USB cable to your computer, download the internal memory photos, and then you can possibly see (on the camera) the memory card photos. It might be a good idea to download those photos to your computer too, if the computer has a memory card slot. Otherwise you will have to go through them and download via the USB again. Once you know the photos are saved, you can either change cards with a new one , or clear the old card and start again.
Good Luck

Yesterday I transferred all my pics from the xd picture card to my computer, nad now I keep getting write error message when I take a pic. The manual says that the card is write protected! How did this...


I don't think the XD card has a lock switch (some do) but what I fully expect is that the memory card requires your to format it to the camera you are using it in. You didn't tell me what camera make or model But you did say you have a manual, look for formatting or it may be called initialize. Formatting clean the surface of the memory card and makes it ready to accept new pictures again.

Whenever I try to take a picture it want take. I keep seeing protected card


Possible that the card has the small lever on it pulled down so that it protects from over wrting.
So remove the card and look on the side for aa small switch showing a direction to protect, move it off and it will allow the card to write again.

I purchased a vivitar 8018 digital camera along with an 8 GB micro SD card. Once the card is inserted and I try to take a picture the camera screen flashes card protected and won't let me take or save any...


SD and SDHC 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.

Canon PowerShot SX20 IS Digital Camera keeps giving me a memory card error. The memory card is a 4gig PNY memory card (lower budget)


Make sure the slide switch on the side of the card is unlocked. Your camera may just want you to format the card in the camera. Download any pics from it first using a card reader if necessary.

"card write protected"


There is a minuscule tab on the side of the card, towards the "handle"-end of the card. Slide this tab to unlock the card and allow write and delete once again.

On my Technika SH-340T when I switch it on ''protected card'' comes up on the screen. What can I do about this?


This is a general problem, not specific to your camera.

Inside your camera, there's a memory card. In your case an SD card. This card has a slider that can be toggled between two positions. Your card's slider is in the "protected" position, and means you can't write to the card. This position is used when you want to be sure you don't overwrite important files (in your case pictures).

The sliders on these cards sometimes change positions when you jam them into a card reader - which might be what happened here?

Simply take the card out, find the slider, and slide it over to the other position. Insert it into the camera, taking care to not slide it into the protected position again, and you should be all set to take pictures!

My 3935 keeps erasing memory cards. All of the sudden, you get a white screen and the camera won't function until you remove the card. This has happened twice; both were Kodak 128 SD. The first time,...


i know it's not solving your problem, but at least it stop from happening again... You can protect images/video clips from being accidentally erased using the protect function in the Playback menu... see also: http://www.fixya.com/BrowseManual.aspx?prdid=218406&mpgid=843814&hlt=erase
