Hi

Take the memory card out of the camera.
You will see a small switch on the card (it is the lock switch)
Slide it to the opposite side and there you go!

It's easy to accidentally lock your card without even knowing it.
lol my mom just had this exact same problem and it was driving her crazy (she too didn't realize the card had a physical lock switch)

Have funn,
Bye

Do you mean the memory card? SD/SDHC 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.

How to delete pics off sd card via my vivicamx040


Format the memory card. This clears all data from the card and prepares it for further use.

Make sure the card isn't 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.

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.

How can i transfer my p;ictures from my camara samsung l200 to my memory card because is not saving them?


Welcome to FixYa.

One possible reason is that your memory card is not yet formatted for camera use.
Image or recoridng will be automatically be saved in your memory card, if card is inserted. If not, it will be saved on your internal memory.

Second reason is it is in write protection.The SD/SDHC memory card has a write protect switch that prevents image files from being deleted or formatted. By sliding the switch to the bottom of the memory card, the data will be protected. By sliding the switch to the top of the memory card, the data protection will be cancelled

Before taking pictures you have to slide the switch to the top of the memory card.

Please let me know if you have any questions and if this solution was helpful.


Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a nikon coolflix l18 i am reading (memory card is write protected I would like to know what it means and what should i do? Thanks


Take a look at your memory card. 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.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

My memory card is write protected. when i turn on camera the screen is saying it is write protected, i can't take pictures or delete pictures


Hi. Thanks for your question.


SOLUTION 1 - Unlock the memory card.

There is a Lock switch on the left side of the SD card. Make sure the Lock switch is slid up (unlock position). You will not be able to modify or delete the contents on the memory card if it is locked.

NOTE: If you are using a microSD/microSDHC card or a miniSD/miniSDHC card, insert the card into the standard SD adapter.


SOLUTION 2 - Toggle the lock switch.

If the lock switch is not on lock:
1. Slide the switch up and down. Repeat this 3 times.
2. Let it stay on the Lock position for 30 seconds.
3. Slide the switch up to unlock the card.
4. Try to transfer files into the device.

I turn on my camera and it says "memory card is write protected" what does that mean? because it won't let me take any pictures i can view pictures I've already taken but i can't take pictures. How can I...


It means just that, you can't write new files (take pictures) while its in that state.

Take the card out, and check the left hand side of the card. You should see a small notch that can be moved betwee "Write protect" and "Write Enable".
slide it to the "Write Enable" position.

My coolpix L18 when i turn it on it says that the memory card is write protected how do i get that to stop and get my camera working again?


Your card has the write protect switch turned on so you can not write data to it. Take the card out of the camera and when looking at the front of the card (label side) there is a small switch, make sure it is in the up position.

My digital camara will not save pictures. Messages appear.


If you are using SD memory card, it can be locked. Take out your memory card, on the left side there's a switch. Turn switch up and try again. Hope this will work.
