Hi,

Try to see if the lock switch on the memory card wasn't accidently moved to lock the card. Move the switch to the other direction and see if this fixes your problem. It's wort a try.
Please rate!!

Have a nice day!!

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. Slide it toward the contacts to enable write, away from the contacts to protect. See if that makes any difference.

How do I get "memory card is write-protected" NOT protected?


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.

My camera says Write Protect! And my memory card is unlocked..it appeared when i was uploading pictures and all of a sudden `write protected`appreared and I cannot use my camera or take any photos...w


Have you tried a new memory card,or reformatted the existing one?
Or go on the menu on the camera and restore all the original factory settings?
If none of those work it might be time for a new camera!

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.

ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER
If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.
