If you just purchased this camera, you can try phoning place of purchase or make a trip there. It sounds as if the software in camera may be messed up.

I have a V1003. It is saying memory card is protected (reset switch on memory card).

There are several possible causes for "memory card locked/protected", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Other causes include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card (which you said you've tried), or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

Take a small flash light and see if there is a part of a memory card in there, if there is cleaning it out would solve the problem. Also make sure you're putting the memory card in the right way. I've you've done that and it's still giving you problems try going into the menu's and formatting the memory card in the camera.

This error message means that the card is corrupted or formatted for another digital camera. Turn off the camera. Insert a new card or format the card.
Try to format the memmory card using a card reader and the PC this should solve your problem if not you have to replace the memmory card.

Try turning the camera off and then back on.Ensure that the memory card is the proper type for the camera. If the memory card is the proper type, try re- formatting the card using the Format option in the Delete sub-menu of the Playback Menu. If it will not format, it is probably corrupted. Replace the memory card

Error on formating new memory card in camera error says memory card is full brand new card i tried 2 in faact same error kodak c310

The lever on your SD card might be turned the wrong way so the SD card is reading protective.
Please turn the lever and try again.

The SD card might not be supported by the model: Your camera Memory card support is SD/MMC up to 2 Gigabyte and SDHC up to 8 Gigabyte

The SD card might not be faulty, try another card, since the camera could give you a message like the one you're experiencing.
Try with a different SD card that is supported by the camera.

From what I can see here, the card's size is too large that your camera couldn't support or handle. Maybe your camera is just limited to 1GB or 2GB. Try plugging 2GB card and see if it detects it. I had similar prob where I bought a 4GB card and it does exactly the same thing. I consulted the vendor, he said it only supports up to 2GB thus, it's a product limitation...well I'm stuck there hehe, can't be helped at all..

If you are certain that your camera can handle 4GB card or higher, try to plug the 4GB card into a card reader and see if it detets it. If it does, try to reformat the card and try it again to your camera.

Also, 1 possible thing is that your 4GB card is password protected. Was it plugged in to any other device? If it was, try to plug it back to the same device where it was connected and disable the password.

Onother thing is the brand. Some camera is brand sensitive when it comes to cards. You may need to try different brand as well.

Hope this helps. :-)

"Memory card is locked"

This error message means that the memory card is write-protected. To take a picture, turn off the camera. Then insert a new card or change the storage location to internal memory
