My camera was bought used, and the previous owners had videos locked in the memory card. I can't figure out how to unlock them so I can delete them and free up space. Does anyone know how to acess the lock/unlock function?

KodakAug 25, 2010 - The camera screen displays "Memory card is protected (Reset switch on card). ... The memory card is locked so that data (pictures, videos, or files) ... The disk is write protected." when writing to or formatting an SD card. Share.
Kodak, EasyShare, Max, Perfect Touch, and Pulse are trademarks of Eastman Kodak. Company. ..... Access to more manual settings than Smart Capture mode. ..... NOTE: To delete protected pictures/videos, remove protection before deleting.
To delete individual photos, use the Delete button (cursor-up, marked with a trashcan) while in Playback mode. See page 45 of this manual. To delete all photos in internal memory or on a memory card, format the internal memory or the memory card. See page 66.
Take no more videos until you've recovered the missing ones, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" videos. There are many good freeware recovery software options that may help you recover them. This article reviews and outlines several of the better ones:
and here's a YouTube video clip of your freeware options:
Your camera might be using the internal memory in saving those pictures.
You can press the Review button and press the left and right arrow to view the previous, next picture or video. You need to press the Delete button in each of them that you wan to delete. You might want to transfer your pictures and videos on the computer first before deleting them.
Then to set the memory card for the camera to save those images instead of the internal memory, just press Menu, then press either up or down button until you see Image Storage. Choose Auto; this option chooses the memory card if it is inserted on the camera.
The videos will not be in the same folder where your pictures are.
Follow these steps.
1.First, connect your digital camera to your computer. You can do this in two different ways:
a.Use a USB cable. Most digital cameras come with a cable that connects the camera to a USB (Universal Serial Bus) port on your computer. The first time you connect your camera to your computer, the New Hardware Wizard will help you install the software needed to copy pictures and video from your camera. You may need to insert the CD-ROM that was included with your camera into your computer's CD drive or download software from your camera manufacturer's Web site.
b.Use memory card reader. A memory card reader is a piece of hardware that plugs into your computer. When you're ready to download video, you can remove the memory card from your camera and insert it into your memory card reader, similar to the way you might transfer a file between two computers using a floppy disk.

Tip: It's usually faster to use a memory card reader to copy your pictures or video than to connect your camera to your computer with a cable. If you don't own a memory card reader, you might want to consider purchasing one. They are inexpensive and will save you time.
2.Once you've connected your camera to your computer or inserted your memory card into your memory card reader, Windows XP will detect the connection to your memory card and ask what to do with your videos. Click Open folder to view files, and then click OK.

3.Windows Explorer opens, showing your memory card. Your videos are contained within one of the subfolders of the memory card. Double-click each folder to locate your videos.
4.Once located. copy them to your computer and then select all and delete.

format the memory card by using low level format in your camera itself. if it s not working. keep camera in vedio mode and use view finder for shooting. now transfer them to ur computer. if the vedio plays sucessfully in computer means there is some fault with LCD only
