SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position nearest the contacts enables writing, the position farthest from the contacts protects the card from writing. If the slide is already in the proper position, try sliding it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try a different card.

Write protect on screen


Look at your 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.

When i turn on the camera it says xD Write Protect.


It can be that if you have a SD card in it you might have somehow clicked the protect small lever. if so take out the SD card and check the sides of it and see if you find a small square like lever then try sliding it up or down however it will go. My SD card has it and when I sometimes put my camera away I slide it to write protect mode so that if my kids somehow get a hold of my camera and play with it they wont erase my pictures. Then when I need to use it I slide it back to unprotected mode. Hope that is your problem.

Every time I turn on my camera a message appears on the screen that says "write protect". What is "write protect" and how do I get rid of the message?


1) It could be your camera has write protect switched on. Go through your camera's menu and look for picture protect and remove it.

2) Your SD card could be write protected. Take out the SD card and check, there's probably a sliding notch on the left hand side, move the to write enable.

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."

Let me know...
