Hello there,

You cannot delete pictures if the memory card inside your camera is "Write Protecte". What you need to do to unprotect it is to turn off the camera and take out your memory card. You will find a small 'tab' that might be pulled up or down. If it is pulled down, you can slide it up or vice versa. Put it back inside the camera and start deleting pictures.

Hope this helps you. Good luck!

How to unlock a photo in camara


The protect function allows a user to protect a picture from accidental deletion. To unprotect a picture on your camera, scroll to the protected picture that you want to delete, then press the Menu button (the button to the right of the Play button.) Scroll down the menu and you should come to an option that allows you to Protect/Unprotect the picture. Since your picture is currently protected, deselect that option. You should then be able to delete the picture normally.

Alternatively, you could also format the memory card, however this deletes ALL photos and data you have on the memory card. If you are trying to completely clear the memory, this is the best way. After turning on your camera, simply press the Menu button, scroll to Setup, then scroll down to Format. Select Format, it will ask you if you want to format the memory card, or the camera's built-in memory. Format whichever one you want to clear, if you are using a memory card then your pictures are stored on the memory card. It will take a few seconds to format.

Hope this helps.

I cannot delete photos from my camera it says


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.

How to recover deleted photos from pentax optio w20 camera


If the photos are on a memory card and you haven't done anything to the card since erasing the photos, there's a change you may be able to recover at least some of them. Do a Google search for "data recovery software" and find a program for your computer and operating system. Put the card into a card reader connected to your computer and run the program.

The camera says Memory card is write protected and will not let me take a photo or delete any photos. How do i delete all of the photos on the memory card?


If it is an SD memory card, check for a little white tab on the left side. Chances are that somehow it got pushed down to the 'write protect' mode. Move it back up and you should be good to go! Good luck.

What do I do? It says... memory card is protected. I can't take photos or delete. :/


Some SD cards have a tiny "write protect" switch on the side. Might you have knowcked that? I would try taking the card out & seeing if you have one.

Otherwise, you can always look for the manual on the manufacturer's web site:

Deleted photo recovery from cameras internal memory


Maybe you can take a try this recovery program called Wondershare Photo Recovery, a picture recovery tool which can recover deleted or formatted photos, videos and music. Get this program here,
Download Windows version
Download Mac version

The free trial version allows you to scan and preview the found photos. How to Do? Take the memory card out of your camera and connect to the computer(with this software installed) and start the scan process.

You should take care - before the deleted items are recovered, please don't save more files to the camera(memory stick) where those data located in case they are overwritten.
I hope you good luck!
