    Go to the menus and set all to default. Test the camera. If it does the same, then the camera probably needs repair. Try a different card. Make sure that the card is the kind which is recommended for your camera. Many of the older cameras had a limit on the size it could read and write to. This camera should take a 2GB card with no problem. Here is a link to updating the Nikon 5700 to newer firmware. That may make a difference. Nikon 5700 memory card on Google.com

If you have a slot on your printer or computer for the compact flash card, insert and try reformatting the card itself.

If you use a usb cable, hook up the camera as if uploading pictures to the computer and try reformatting the CF card that way.

To reformat, find the drive in "My Computer" that corresponds to the card or the camera. Right click on it and choose 'format' from the menu. Another window will come up that has a small box to check for 'Quick Format". Check the box and click OK. You'll receive a prompt that all data will be erased. Click OK.

If this doesn't work, it's time for a new CF card.

Camera shows write protect when open


When what is open? Always keep the battery / memory card door closed. If it is not closed correct, the camera won't work as expected. To protect the file system, when someone should pul out the memory card, while the camera is accessing the memory, it will or shut down completely, or at least protect the memory card against writing to it.
Before opening the battery / memory card cover, always make sure the camera is completely shut off. That means no light is allowed to burn or flicker. The memory card can also be write protected (SD cards) when the lock switch is down like in the picture on the 32GB card.
Before you can make any picture the switch on the card should be up like on the 64GB card on the picture. 3635bcf4-65df-478c-a04d-92e341d15860.jpg

It says my memory card is protected


On the side of the memory card, there is a small slider that locks and protects the memory card from being overwritten. Yours may be in the locked position. Simply pull out your memory card form your camera and unlock your memory card by sliding the tab.
