Have you tried a new memory card,or reformatted the existing one?
Or go on the menu on the camera and restore all the original factory settings?
If none of those work it might be time for a new camera!

Hi photobug,

I've had some experience with a Stylus 710 (/w XD M & H cards) and an E-Volt-510.(XD and CF). Give us some more info like:
-what kind of ipod (generation/size), size (resolution) of you photos you want to transfer,
-type of computer (mac, windows), what operating system (Tiger/Leopard, 98, 00, XP, Vista),
-the method you are copying the photos (Olympus Master, Studio, Explorer, iTunes, etc.), &
-what are you intensions of copying the files to the ipod (display and view only on the ipod [ipod resolution], backup storage medium [original files], or just to clean up you XD card [original files], or temporary transfer medium to photo kiosk [print later]?

Answer these questions and I may offer some recommendations that worked for me.

SOURCE: write protect message appears on screen

Sounds as if the memory card may be corrupted. In order to remove the write protect, make sure you have downloaded and saved all of the images from the memory card to your computer and then having the card in the camera you will need to run the format option and this will permanently remove the write protect as well as all of the images from the card.
The card should be able to be used again after the write protect is removed.

SOURCE: Write Protect error and I think all my pics dissapeared!

If you are using an SD card, it could be possible that the Write Protect tab (the yellow tab on the top right) is in the 'lock' position. Slide it back and try again. If this does not work, make sure you are using the card and not the internal memory to store images.

My fujifilm finepix jx 300 says protect card even after sliding the switch on memory card to unlock


check if in the card slot is any debris. You could try to clean the contacts of the xD memory card with a dry cloth. Place the card on a flat underground and press firmly on the cloth. Don't press without a flat underground, because you could easy break the card.
It also could be some of your pictures are protected. You have to unprotect the pictures first.

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.

Good day.. After uploading photos to my PC using USB connection of my GE X5 camera " Write protect error " always appears when taking shots.. Please help.. Thank you very much. -TeR-


Look at your memory card. 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.

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.

What does write protect mean?


"Write Protect" means that something is locked and your device (camera) cannot "write" to it's storage area.
What type of "storage media" are you using?
For example:  the camera's internal memory, a CompactFlash card, a Memory Stick, an "xD-Picture Card" (micro, mini or regular sized), or a Secure Digital/MultiMediaCard.
[Did you put something  (a small plastic card of some sort) into a slot on the camera before or after turning it on?
Those little cards usually have a tiny button (also called a switch or lever) on them that will move back and forth to lock (write protect) or unlock it. This sounds like the memory card inside your camera is locked or "Write Protected.

To fix this simply take it out, closely examine the memory for the button- the button will be closer to the word "lock" or "protect" and all you need to do is gently slide it in the opposite direction from where it currently is. Put it back into the camera and see if it still says "Write Protect."

Let me know...
