Have you checked to make sure the card isn't locked? On the side of the card there is a sliding switch which locks and unlocks cards. You might check that.

Yesterday I transferred all my pics from the xd picture card to my computer, nad now I keep getting write error message when I take a pic. The manual says that the card is write protected! How did this...


I don't think the XD card has a lock switch (some do) but what I fully expect is that the memory card requires your to format it to the camera you are using it in. You didn't tell me what camera make or model But you did say you have a manual, look for formatting or it may be called initialize. Formatting clean the surface of the memory card and makes it ready to accept new pictures again.

Every time I try n take a pic my samsung sl30 camera says "card locked!" How can I unlock the card?


Slide the lock switch on the SD card away from the lock position. It is a small plastic switch, usually yellow or white, on the side of the card.

Hi there, A message on my camera states that the card is locked. it does not give me the option the delete any photos either, but still able to view pic. Bev


Take the memory card out of your camera and look at it. 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.

My girl took pics of wedding Saturday and viewed pics earlier today. When she went to look at them again, a message " Disc in Drive E is not formatted. Do you want to format disc now?" Of...


do not format -- you will lose the pictures

instead go to another computer that supports SD memory and CDRW. insert into that computer and then take all the PICS, save into that computer. now take a blank CD and take the saved PICs and burn into CD.
Also, to ensure you dont lose these pictures (PICs) you may want to buy a 4G or 8G USB thumb drive (about $10-$15 or less) -- drag and drop all the PICs (saved on that computer) into the USB thumb drive. Now you have on CD and USB drive.

hope this helps

You probably just need to format the card in the camera to get it to work. This will erase the card so download any pics first using a card reader if necessary.

Nikon Coolpix 5200 Getting Message ""Memory Card is Write Protected"


Inspect your SD card carefully. Some SD cards come with a write-protect lock switch on the side of the card. When looking at an SD card from the top there is one required notch on the right side (the side with the diagonal notched corner) and on the left side there is usually a switch. This is the write-protect switch. When this write-protect switch is in the down position (away from the end that is inserted) then it is write protected and read-only. When the switch is in the up position it is write enabled.
