On SD cards there is a small lock that prevents writing to the cards. Check that.
If you are sure there is nothing on the card, remove it from the camera and insert into a card reader attached to your computer and see if anything is there.
You can try to delete everything on the card from the computer then reinstall it in the camera. MAKE SURE YOU FORMAT THE CARD IN YOUR CAMERA BEFORE TAKING ANY PHOTOS.

When i switch on my digital camera write protect message is displayed on it , my camera is olympus fe-190


If your camera uses a SD memory card then the write protect switch maybe on.
SD and Micro SD memory cards has a smallslide switch on the edge of the card, which write protects data on the memorycard. Slide the switch from the READ position tothe WRITE position, which is furthest away from the contacts.

How to fix write protect from my olympus FE 190 model


Good day,

This tip will explain how to remove the write protect from your SD Card.

This is a easy fix and won't take a minute.

First remove your SD Card from your device. You will see on the side of the SD Card that there is a small switch. If your SD Card complains about being write protected simply put the switch in the opposite position. Some of the SD Cards even have the word LOCK on near the switch indicating the direction the switch must be to LOCK the card.

Once the switch is changed you can put the SD Card back into your device and the problem of write protection would be solved.

Please feel free to let me know if this tip was able to help you!

Regards

My camera wont take pictures when i have my memory card in it it says write protect. but when i take the memory card out it will????


When you remove the card, the camera is using its built-in internal memory which is very small and won't hold many pictures. Does your card have a slide switch on the side? If so, it should be in the unlocked position.

How do you upload pictures from an olympus fe-370 camera


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive.

Memory card showing 'no image' after trying to upload


Sounds like you didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function when you disconnected the USB cable. This can corrupt the card and even the camera. You could try using a separate card reader to download the pics from the card. If that works, and the pics are safely downloaded, then you should format the card in the camera to erase and optimize it. If it doesn't work, take the card to a Walmart that has a Kodak Picture Kiosk and it should be able to read your card. You can print the pics or even make a cd of them. Then, format the card in the camera.

Write protect


Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Menu button - right arrow to Setup - Press Ok- right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect message and the card can be used again.

Write protect message appears on screen


Sounds as if the memory card may be corrupted. In order to remove the write protect, make sure you have downloaded and saved all of the images from the memory card to your computer and then having the card in the camera you will need to run the format option and this will permanently remove the write protect as well as all of the images from the card.
The card should be able to be used again after the write protect is removed.
