Check the side of the memory card. Some of them have a little switch that turns on/off write protection. If there is no switch, you can try to format it in the computer first, then put it in the camera and format it again.

Why does my s120 keep saying memory card write protected?


Look at your memory card. 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.

After I shoot a picture the camera freezes up. I have to power off and up a couple of times to get it back to shoot mode. It does not store the image when it freezes up.


Can you power up the camera don't take a picture but move around the functions and view pictures on the LCD screen? If the camera does all the functions it's suppose to except hold a picture then I'd say the memory is at question. You might not have a memory card installed in the camera and it's working on the Internal Memory which is now full or not able to load another picture. If there is a memory card in the camera it might have the protection switch in the lock position which then would shift the picture storage to the internal memory. You need to check to see if there is a memory card in the camera if so make sure this card is in the unlock position. If the images are on the internal memory then you need to transfer the internal memory pictures to the memory card for download to the PC. Make sure the memory card is unlocked and formatted to the camera after you download the pictures to the PC

The card, or memory chip in camera is locked, and i dont know how to unlock it, so now i cant take pictures, or upload my pictures, or even delete photos,i just need to know how to unlock my camera.


Hi,
This used to happen when the write protect lock on in the memory card. Refer the manual to see how to remove the memory card.
After removing the memory card, unlock the write protect tab as shown in the fig. d7656e6.jpg

I put my memory card in my camera and it says protected card how do i use it on my new camera?


Hi there,

Your memory card is protected and this is why you cant take pictures.
To solve the problem do the following:

  1. Remove the memory card.
  2. On the side of the card you will see a switch. This locks or unlocks the card.
  3. Change the switch to unlocked by either shifting it up or down.
  4. Put the memory card back into your camera.

Your problem should now be solved!!
Enjoy taking pictures!!

Regards

Protective card when trying to take picture-


If you are using an SD card for the memory, there is a small, locking switch on the side of it. Slide it in the opposite direction to where it is now, and you should be able to shoot and erase again.

Camera wont back up to memory card


Hi there.
Check to make sure the write protection is turned off on the memory card itself, the write protection tab is located on the left hand side of the card and is usually coloured white.
