The delete button deletes images stored on the memory. It is located on the back of the camera and looks like a little garbage can. It is the middle button going vertically down on the right side of the display screen. First hit the button below it that looks like a printer. It will display a picture. Then use the left/right buttons down where the OK button is in the middle. This will take you backwards or forwards in your photos. Next push the delete button it will ask if you want to delete yes or no, use the left/right buttons again to choose yes or no. Then push OK in the middle and it will delete your pic if you chose yes or save it if you chose no.
You can also go in on Play mode [under the /- button where garbage can is] and press the Menu button...go left or right until you find DELETE screen and then follow directions from there. All these directions are on your CD that came with the camera.
Hope this helps. MAKE SURE you have downloaded whatever you want to keep on your computer before deleting.
In the menu go to the camera settings symbol (camera and wrench). Go to the "image storage" and choose "Internal". Leave the menu. Press "preview". You'll see only pic's from the internal memory. Press "Menu" ... "Copy" and choose all.
After that go back to "image storage" and choose "Auto" and -if necessary- delete the files from the internal memory (remove the card before!)
To Unprotect go to MENU down on the lower left when ur looking at screen press menu while u have one of the protected pics up. Go to Protect folder-select-ok-hit W at top-ok
it is now unprotected and u can delete from here!
When in the playback menu, toggle the zoom out, as if you had already zoomed in on an object and then wanted to zoom back out. This should cause the pictures on your camera to be displayed in thumbnail mode. When you hit the trash/delete button in this viewing mode, you will be given the option to delete the entire folder's contents. You can also highlight a selection of thumbnails, then delete them all at once by choosing the "Select" option.
If your pic is in the locked mode (Green Key Icon). Bring up picture. Press menu. Press (Playback Menu) and hit OK. Press OK again and it should bring up the pic with option of off or on. Hit off to unlock and you should be able to delete the pic.
I am very skeptical when buying anything online however I faced the same problem when I lost over 500 pictures of our first family vacation to Disney World. This was a nightmare for about two days until I discovered a software easy to download on the website www.CardRecovery.com. I paid about $40.00 and I am a satisfied customer! Amazing and if this ever happens again the download is reusable. Tryi it I highly recommend. Dawnette Escobedo from San Antonio, Texas
could be a couple things. first: your memory card most likely has a slide switch just switch that back to the unlock mode second:
second: from olympus guy put the camera into play back mode. This is where you can see your
picuters on the camera. Then go into the menu and try to go to card
setup. This is 3rd tab. So hit ok hit right for mode menu. then hit
down to you see card setup. Then hit right arrow 2 times and you will
see formatt. Then go to yes and it will say caution somthing. and hit
Now if you have picuters on the card this will delete them so if you
care about them you might want to think about data recovery. But if not
try this and let me know.
"""I don't use the camedia software to download pics from the camera,
neither do I use Xp's picture and scanner wizard. I simply plug my cam
to the usb port and xp detects it as a USB mass storage device. I then
copy the pics from the removable device displayed on My Computer
window. Would you say that this method is not safe?""""
This is best way to do it i think. If you dont want to go into
Cameida. The xp scanner camera wizard works good most time i dont know
why it messes up some camera cards and its really random. One thing i
would say. Formatt the card everytime you download your picuters. Not
in the computer by right clicking on the driver, NEVER DO THIS!! will
blow your card basicly. Do not delete pictuers from you computer with
camera pluged it. Basicly most cameras us a diffrent file system the
your computer. So that can start to mess things up. Just put the card
into camera and do a format.
Your formatted pics are still there until you take more pics and overwrite them. Just remember not to take any more pics on that card just yet (sorry I didn't see this post sooner).
It's no problem at all to get them back. As an example, try the below linked freeware program. It's tiny to download (a little over 1meg), and very easy to use. You'll have your pics back in ten minutes after reading this:
- Turn on camera - Press on PLAY BACK button (wherein you are viewing pictures) - Press MENU button once - Scroll to the right until you PROTECT menu tab - Scroll down to SELECT or ALL PICS - Highlight ALL PICS - Press MENU button * It will be displaying pictures and another submenu telling you to UNLOCK or LOCK pictures - Use your zoom switch to change the submenu to UNLOCK - Once you've seen UNLOCK - Press MENU button so pictures will be released/unlocked
Those are the steps on how to UNPROTECT pictures on your A503.
