Card Reading Write Protected

All of a sudden every time I power up my 410, it reads Wite Protect! on the screen and beeps real loud and long at me. I don't know how the card could be "Write Protect!" suddenly. How do I unprotect it? Is the card or the camera bad?

Hi there

some card do have a physical lock onto itself to protect files.

please check your card and look for a small switch, its usually at the side. click it up or down and try re inserting it to your cam. if this still isnt any help, it must be a setting on your cam.

hope this helps. :)

Have you tried a new memory card,or reformatted the existing one?
Or go on the menu on the camera and restore all the original factory settings?
If none of those work it might be time for a new camera!

It reading protected card every time i inserted


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.

Screen reads memory card write protected cant get it off


SD type cards have a little switch on the card that can write protect or "lock" it. Take the card out of the camera and check this switch. To unlock it, it should be moved towards the edge of the card which has the electrical contacts.

Write protect error olympus c 150 (cant get rid of read only)


Hi!

You might wanna check on your memory card. It could be that it is currently on write-protected mode. What you want to do is to check it now and then look for something like a push button. If its on the top position, push it downwards. Vice versa.

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.
