Question about Panasonic DMC-ZS1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

CANT WRITE TO UNLOCKED SD CARD I've tried repeatedly to write files to various sd memory cards in my ZS1 and it always gives me the message that the card is locked and can't be written. The cards are UNlocked physically, and I have no trouble writing to them when they are inside other cameras (Canon & Fuji). Is this a defect of the Panasonic or is it fixable?

Are you sure that the lock / unlock tab isn't getting moved to the lock position when inserted AND then moved back to the unlock position when removed? Stranger things have happened.

Some cards have lock / unlock tabs that are so flimsy that it seems that you can "will" them to move. Try placing a small amount of tape in such a way that the tab is prevented from moving (if you never use the lock feature like me, you could use a drop of glue instead of tape). You might have to remove some excess tape in order to slip it back into the camera if the slot is "tight".

If still unable to write to the card in the camera, but can when in a card reader - the problem could be in the camera. The next logical step would be to try a different card. If the new card fails in the camera but not the card reader; the camera probably needs to be sent out for repair.

I hope this helps - and good luck!

The manual says: the files names does not match the DCF format. Transfer the files on the card to your computer and format the card.
You tried to format and it did not work. Sure the card is not locked? The lock switch should be up, so the card is unlocked an you must be able to format te card and you should be able to write files to the memory card.
Although the camera is compatible with SCHC I wonder if you did not put in a very big card. Perhaps your camera cant work with 8 or 16 GB. Is surely can't work with SDXC cards.
Did you try a normal SD card, and could you format that one?

Take a small flash light and see if there is a part of a memory card in there, if there is cleaning it out would solve the problem. Also make sure you're putting the memory card in the right way. I've you've done that and it's still giving you problems try going into the menu's and formatting the memory card in the camera.

Put the SD card in a stand alone card reader, and copy the data off it to your computer. Next, format the SD card, and put it back in your phone.

Can't access photos on 2 GB SD camera card.


You may try some photo recovery software to rescue the files on your digital camera sd card, here are some for your options.

Photo Recovery (for Windows)
Photo Recovery for Mac

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

Card Locked ! Error


Remove SD card, then whilst card is removed, delete all pictures that may still be stored in cameras 'internal' memory (usually just a few) then replace SD card. Should be unlocked now?.

Turn off write protection on a sd micro card


If you are using it with the SD adaptor, the swith at the side marked lock is not to secure the micro sd card within the adaptor. This is the write protection. If you set this to the 'unlocked' position (up) then you should be able to write files onto it!
