Dear Hannahboggs9,
I am not quite sure of what is the make of your Memory card however most of the memory cards have a small switch on side that could be toggled to make it write protected. I am sending you a link with picture to make it more clear.

See the yellow slide lock on left edge of the above card...

Now if there is no lock on your card or if the above mentioned is not the problem then you might want to try formatting the card using your computer with "FAT" OR "FAT16" file system selected from the drop down (DO NOT SELECT FAT32).

If that too doesn't work then you might want to try with a different memory card.
This issue doesn't seem to be with camera.

In case any further assistance is required please write back and I would be glad to assist.

Regards,
Srinivas

I have a Nikon coolpix L105 and it says memory card is write protected


SD 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.

Suddenly the card you have inserted is locked so that's why is says write protected. To unlocked the it get or remove your card from your camera. You can see in your memory card there is a small button her try to slide the button to unlocked. Insert your memory card back to your camera and try to take a picture it will take a picture.

"memory card is write protected"?? but it's not the memory card!


It's not the camera. 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. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Memory card says it write protected


Make sure the SD card lock is 'off' and then use thin, opaque sticky tape (ie non see-through; eg insulation tape) to cover the whole gap but keep clear of the metal contacts at the back.
The mechanical lock switch accidentally moves to the "locked" position during insertion due to the poor quality of the switch.
