Hi,

There is a lock switch on the memory card that you can set to protect the card. Have a look at the card and check if you can see the switch. Just push it in the other direction than it is at present and all should work fine.

Please rate.
Cheers

There is a small notch on the right side of the card.... set it to unlock position. Since your protection is slready ON, just set it to the other position.

Please note that data copied in protected mode can be cleared only once you have uploacked it and inserted it into he same device that was using it in locked mode.

Remove write protection on 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.

I get the message 'protected card' Next trick?


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked/protected", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. The second most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. There are also other common causes if the above didn't help, with troubleshooting steps for this problem listed here.

When i put memory card in it comes up write protect can you tell me why and how do i get rid of it


You didn't specify the make and model of your camera or the type of your memory card, so I'm assuming you have an SD or SDHC card.

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.

How do i get rid of my write protection on on the sd card


Hi,

Wecome to Fixya. Memory card has a slide switch on the side or along the edges, you just have to slide it to get rid of the write protection on your memory card. Just remember that if the position nearest on the contacts is already removed the write protection on the SD card.

Thank you for using Fixya,

What does 'Write Protect' mean and how do I get rid of it?


That means that your SD card (or whichever memory card you use) is write protected and you cannot edit the card's content in any way.

Take your memory card out of the camera and plug it into your computer. There should be a place for you to change the memory card's protections that way. Sometimes, as with USB drives, there might be a small sliding lock physically located on the card which will also write protect the device.

I have a Nikon coolpix. The memory card is PNY optima SD 2GB. I get a message saying Memory card is write protected. I have no idea how this happened or how to get rid of it.


SD cards have a sliding switch along one edge. Slide it toward the contacts to enable write, away from the contacts to protect.

If this doesn't do it, then there may be something wrong with the switch mechanism in the camera.

Also, make sure the contacts are clean.
