Dear Wlburns68,
There are many protection features on this camcoder as follows:

  1. If the (DEW) protection feature is activated, leave the camcoder for at least two hours in a dry, warm room with the cassette compartment opened and the battery pack removed.
  2. When you have recorded something that you wish to keep,
    you can protect it so that it will not be accidentally erased.
    a. Protecting a tape :
    Push the safety tab on the cassette so that the hole is
    b. Removing the tape protection :
    If you no longer wish to keep the recording on the
    cassette, push the write-protect tab back so that it
    covers the hole.
    You can have a similar function on Memory cards as well.

  3. One is the Protection that you set on an image or a video to protect it from being overwritten (the point number 2 is at Tape/memory card level and this one is at image level)
I think the issue that your camera has is to do with either (2) or (1).
Please let me know if that helps and if it doesn't still I would love to hear from you so that I can research a little further..

    I have one mds e 11 end dont record .apears protect on the display

    Most likely you have the tab in the minidisc set to protect preventing the recorder from recoding on the disk C11 is the same as Protected.

    Slide the notch on the minidisc to the other side to record. You cannot record on pre recorded minidiscs. You have to remove the disc from the recorder to do this.

    If you open theprotect tab the recorder may write over what you already have on the minidisc.

    How do I remove the "write Protect " from my Olympus camera? I must have pushed some buttons incorrectly and suddenly it shows that "write Protect " sign. I already tried removing...

    Find the flash memory card that plugs into your camera and stores the pictures. It's usually behind a door or flap on the side or bottom. Remove the card, usually accomplished by pushing it in and then it should spring outward slightly -- at least enough for you to pull it out the rest of the way. Check the card for a tiny sliding tab on the side and move it to the opposite end of its travel. See this wikipedia article for pictures and more info about write-protection.
