Unhide folders


I can't find anything about hiding folders. If you did protect any pictures, but you then formatted the memory card all pictures are lost. The protection only helps against deleting from the menu.
If you did format your memory card. you only can recover pictures with special recovery software in your PC, while the memory card is in a card reader.

MY SD CARD WON'T LET ME PUT PICTURES ON IT FROM MY COMPUTER. IT SAYS IT IS WRITE PROTECTED. THE CARD IS NOT LOCKED. AND ALL MY CARDS SAY THE SAME THING. WHAT DO I DO.


Hi brenda28152 ,

This seems to be a problem where the write protect switch on your memory card in is on position.

The write protect switch disables the write feature from your flash drive or memory card, which means that you would not be able to put anything on your flash drive including pictures.

Therefore all you need to do is change the position of the write protection switch so that it's disabled and not write protected , and there you go , you can write files on your flash drive.

Please find the below images for more description , sajjad4help_1.jpegsajjad4help_2.jpeg

In case your problem in not solved do feel free to get back to me..

Hope this helps ..:) your feed back would be appreciated.

My cammera is locked i dont know how and why i try to take picture it says THE CARD IS LOCKED i turn it on it says the same i pretty much cant do anything, how can i unlock it or fix it????


SD type cards have a little switch on the card that can write protect or "lock" it. Take the card out of the camera and check this switch. To unlock it, it should be moved towards the edge of the card which has the electrical contacts.

There is also a software protection feature on some cameras, but this is used to protect a folder or individual picture from accidental deletion, not the whole memory. You set or release this protection from the camera menus.

If it is not that, then maybe it is having trouble with the size of the memory. Memory cards have grown enormously in capacity in the last couple of years, and even relatively new cameras may not be able to cope with the memory size of the newest cards. Have you tried formatting the card in the camera? This would be one way of making sure that the camera can cope with the card, and it will also erase anything on the card. "SD" cards larger than about 1GB are actually SDHC cards. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

I have a digital camera and the model is C1033 , i put a san disc drive card in with a memory card in the san disc and on christmas day it worked fine, a few days later i couldnt take a picture and it says...


Sound like the card is corrupted. Take it out and try in a card reader, search for image recovery software if you can't read the card properly. When you've finished trying to get the images off the card format the card and retry in the camera.

When i try to do anything on my camera i.e.(take picture, delete picture, or crop picture) an error message pops up reading "card protected". How do i fix this?


Look at your 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.

My digital screen says "Memory Card is write protected" what does this mean?


When memry card is write protected, you can not write (save) anything on it. There is a tiny botton which is set to write protect to prevent the content of the memory be written over. When you write over another file (picture) the old one will be destroyed.

If you would like to write to your memory, you have take out the memory and move the botton to other side of the write protect and insert it back in your camera. Now you can take picturs and save them on the memory stick.

You would want to write protect if you do not want accidently replace an old stored picture with the new one.

I hop it helped you

When i turn the camera on protected card pops up on the screen and it doesnt let you take pictures or anything


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. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

The card locked usually means 'protected' Check out the manual for image protection - on/off. Or put card back into computer and delete[NOT FORMAT] from there. A more comprehensive manual is usually found the the CD that came with the camera
