Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Canon 450D shows "card write protected"

As in the title! No, the card switch is not in the locked position. Yes, I have tried several cards. Yes I have tried a card formatted on my PC.

I think I know where the problem lies, but I want to know if anyone else has experienced the same problem with a Canon SLR, especially 450D XSi or Kiss X2 models.

How can i remove the write protect in my SD 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.

How do I unprotect images


SD and Micro SD memory cards has a small slide switch on the edge of the card, which write protects data on the memory card or add photos to the SD card. Slide the switch from the LOCK position to the UNLOCK position, which is furthest away from the contacts.

It says card write protected. I can not delete photos.


Take the memory card out of your camera and look at it. 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.

"Card Write Protected" has come up on my Cannon


Hi,

Check if the card is truly write protected (check the little slider on the SD card). Its possible it slid into lock position accidentally

How do i unprotect my memory card from a canon 450d?


Hi,
Thanks for using Fixya.
Every SD card should have a write protect switch located on the right edge, about 5mm from the top of the card. In order to unlock the card, slide the switch upwards.

Note that with Mini SD and Micro SD (Transflash) these switches are not present. The card is always unlocked. A switch may however be present on an SD card adapter.

Because of the position of the switch they can often be switched accidentally on inserting or removing the card.

Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

CAN'T USE CAMERA


There is a small switch on the sd card. This can "write protect" the card so that you don't mistakenly write over something important. Move the switch to the unlocked position. If you need further assistance please let me know. also please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.
Thank you,
Lee
