Please look at the memory card closely. If there is a write protect switch, it will give you this error. Please ensure that the write protect switch on the memory card is not in the lock, or protected position.

See more information about SD cards here.

Let me know if this helps!

SOURCE: my DSE memory card says 'write protected'

Hi there, do this:
To fix this, remove the SD card from your camera. Look on the side and you will find a little switch. One end of the switch says locked the other end says unlocked. Move the switch from locked to unlocked. Replace it in your camera and turn it back on.

SOURCE: 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.

Remove the memory card and look at it, on SD cards there is a small switch on the left that you can use to lock or unlock data.

Turn off protected mode


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.

Turn on camera and get card locked sign


Take the the memory card out. On the side of the card, there is a notch, it moves up and down. If you see it up, move it down or vice versa. It should unlock it. Then put it back and turn the camera on.

This notch serves as a write protect feature of the memory card. If this thing breaks, the card will remain protected and you can no longer writable.

If this fails, try inserting another card, if shows the same error, it means you camera needs repair.

Memory card write protected


Check the side of the memory card. Some of them have a little switch that turns on/off write protection. If there is no switch, you can try to format it in the computer first, then put it in the camera and format it again.

Fujifilm FinePix Z20fd protected card??


The memory card should have a little switch on it, try it in the other position. It is a safety lock to stop it getting wiped.

What does write protect mean?


"Write Protect" means that something is locked and your device (camera) cannot "write" to it's storage area.
What type of "storage media" are you using?
For example:  the camera's internal memory, a CompactFlash card, a Memory Stick, an "xD-Picture Card" (micro, mini or regular sized), or a Secure Digital/MultiMediaCard.
[Did you put something  (a small plastic card of some sort) into a slot on the camera before or after turning it on?
Those little cards usually have a tiny button (also called a switch or lever) on them that will move back and forth to lock (write protect) or unlock it. This sounds like the memory card inside your camera is locked or "Write Protected.

To fix this simply take it out, closely examine the memory for the button- the button will be closer to the word "lock" or "protect" and all you need to do is gently slide it in the opposite direction from where it currently is. Put it back into the camera and see if it still says "Write Protect."
