SOURCE: "Write Protect" on Olympus FE-115

Check the manual to discover how write protect is achieved with your particular camera/card Some card rely on a silver foil stick[Smart Media] other have a switch. Compact flash rely on a control on the camera. So you will have to have a good browse through the manual - do not forget that there is a Full manual in PDF on the software disk.

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- Select Format - 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.

Says write protect when you turn on and cant take pictures


Look at your memory card. SD and SDHC 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.

Wat is write protect


It's the memory card. SD 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, allowing the camera (or any other device) to write to the card.

There is probably a setting on your camera that prevents you from writing to the card. There may also be a switch on the card that prevents the card from being written to.
