Hi,

You have not mentioned the model number but this will help if your camera takes SD or SDHD cards.

Do you know that the SD card has a little switch on its side?
It is a small sliding thing on the other side from the cut out corner.

If this is in the lock position it will stop you saving your pictures to the card. This is to protect pictures that you want to keep.

To save pictures to the card the switch must be in the up position.

Hi,
Please try the following:
Take out the memory card from your camera. On the back side there should be a very small lock. Try pushing it to the other direction.

My olympus cam t-100 Showing d error of write protect, actually i was replace my card last nite from my cell to cam or i can also delete all pics from cam. how can i recover back same like before i do


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.

Nokia C6 can't just open pics, says Memory full, delete some data first !! I have to restart my phone, just to see the pics


Hi inserting of other memory card could not help....because this problem comes from the malfunction of the phone's OS.Formatting the phone will also not solve.But the only way to get rid from this problem is to flash the phone.Because,the files which is stored in your phone memory is hidden/infected by the virus.You can do it by following this link Click here1.Or you can visit nearest mobile repairing shop.Again here is the link to get/download your flash file All nokia bb5 flash file.Good luck.Thanks for visiting fixya

I have a v-lux 2 and want to get rid of the built in memory. . it is full. . . how do i do that?


I don't think you can 'get rid of' it but think it only comes into use if there is no additional memory card in place. So take any other memory card out and then try to delete or clear out the images in the built in memory in the usual ways (double clicking delete to get to 'Delete All' is handy). One other thing is that marking pics as 'Favourite' prevents their deletion, but if you switch 'Favourites' to off in the menu this removes any protection

Won't delete pics


Try formatting the card via the camera, that should get rid of them. Once formatted, take a photo and try deleting.

It may be worth trying another card to establish whether is a card or a camera problem.

There's a third option. Many cameras have a feature which protects pictures from deletion, if they're protected they cant be deleted.

Locked cam


If the pictures are protected, see page 43 of this manual.

If the memory card is protected, look at the memory card. SD 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.

Protected phone memory.


Try saving all the data you want saved to your PC, then take your sd card out, (always use the menu to remove the sd card), go into the menu and reset the phone to factory settings. it will clear out lots of unseen dust files that are left behind when opening and deleting files, applications and pics etc...
