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.

On the memory card is a slide lock that locks the card from being accidentally written to or erased. embossed with a lock that is unlocked/locked.
Somehow this slide lock has been moved to the write protection mode/locked. Could have happened if you removed the memory card lately.
Remove the memory card and slide the lock to unlock reinstall the card and that should cure your problem.

check if in the card slot is any debris. You could try to clean the contacts of the xD memory card with a dry cloth. Place the card on a flat underground and press firmly on the cloth. Don't press without a flat underground, because you could easy break the card. It also could be some of your pictures are protected. You have to unprotect the pictures first.
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.
Look at your memory card. 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.
plug it....go to controle pannel, administrative tools, device managment, and click on disk managment, after that you will see your hard drive/s , as well as your usb drive, locate it, right click and format....
When this problem occur you need to set the memory card unlock or not
Remove the memory card from camera and you can see a small button in
the memory card, so you need to slide that to set the memory card unlock
To remove the write protect lock, take the memory card out
of the camera, face the card towards you, look for a small white tab on
the left hand side of the card, to unlock it push the tab up to unlock it, it will
be at the side of the card like this .
Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Ok button - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to card setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect message and the card can be used again.
