"memory card is write protected " on the screen. How to remove it.


Look at the 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.

Write protect or to unlock pic to delete them


Remove the card from the camera and look for the lock tab. On the image below, it is a yello tab located near the top of the left edge on the long side. This one is shown in the unlocked position. Yours is likely down - at the locked position. Simply push it up and reinsert into your camera and take pictures.

I just turned my camera on and on the screen it says Write Protect. WHat does that mean?


It means the memory card inside it has been set to write protect so that images cannot be lost. If you take the card out there should be a tiny slide switch on the card itself (usually on the side). If you move the switch to the opposite direction you should be able to write to the card. You might want to check what is on the card before formatting to make sure there's nothing you need to keep :)

My samsung camera wont let me take pics or videos b/c it says "CARD LOCKED" everytime i try to take pics


When this problem occur you need to set the memory card unlock or not protected. Remove the memory card from camera and you can see a small button in the memory card, so you need to slide that to set the memory card unlock or not protected.

Remove the memory card from the camera (it is next to the batteries). On the side of the card is a little switch, set this to unlocked. You will then be able to write to the card again.

What does write protect mean?


"Write Protect" means that something is locked and your device (camera) cannot "write" to it's storage area.
What type of "storage media" are you using?
For example:  the camera's internal memory, a CompactFlash card, a Memory Stick, an "xD-Picture Card" (micro, mini or regular sized), or a Secure Digital/MultiMediaCard.
[Did you put something  (a small plastic card of some sort) into a slot on the camera before or after turning it on?
Those little cards usually have a tiny button (also called a switch or lever) on them that will move back and forth to lock (write protect) or unlock it. This sounds like the memory card inside your camera is locked or "Write Protected.

To fix this simply take it out, closely examine the memory for the button- the button will be closer to the word "lock" or "protect" and all you need to do is gently slide it in the opposite direction from where it currently is. Put it back into the camera and see if it still says "Write Protect."
