Try to right click on the drive and format it.
its likely corrupt so the error is incorrect.
if you have a usb memory reader that may be required.

    not likely once its corrupt what you see is what you get.

    take the card out and put it in a usb memory reader to see if there is
    any difference . you may even have a bad memory card. there are a lot
    of cheap inferior 1 gig memory cards that never work right.

    the fix they were talking about was for individual pics have write
    protection the error your really getting is corrupt memory card
    but they have no error in the camera for that its just supposed to work.

    you can just put the card aside and get another.

When i try to delete a picture it says that it is protected


Unprotect the picture first. Press MENU, select the Playback tab (right-pointing triangle), then "Protect images," then press the SET button. Select the image to be unprotected and press SET.

Full details are in the "Protecting images" section of the manual (page 129 in my copy). If you need a manual, you many download a copy (and more) from here.

Every time I download my images to my laptop, using the laptops card reader, upon reinserting to camera I get the CHA appearing in the camera lcd topview


Try turning on the write protect before inserting the card into the card reader. This will prevent the computer from writing to the card. When you finish downloading, turn off the write protect, put the card back into the camera, and format it.
The write protect switch is on the edge of the card. The position farther from the contacts write-protects the card.

I downloaded some pictures to my school computer and now my camera won't take any pictures. Message is Memory card write protected.


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

Write Protect Error Message


Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Menu button - right arrow to Setup- right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect message and the card can be used again.

However if you need to save these images first: As long as the xD card was not formatted it is possible to recover the images that were accidently erased,lost or corrupted. You can go to the following website link and download an image recovery software program that is free of charge.

You want to download a program called Zero Assumption Recovery. It is a very simple program to use and many people have had much success in recovering lost images.

Data recovery is a booming industry, and many appropriate services and software can be found by searching regional phone and business directories or the Internet for terms such as "image recovery" or "data recovery".

Write protect message appears on screen


Sounds as if the memory card may be corrupted. In order to remove the write protect, make sure you have downloaded and saved all of the images from the memory card to your computer and then having the card in the camera you will need to run the format option and this will permanently remove the write protect as well as all of the images from the card.
The card should be able to be used again after the write protect is removed.

The cause said its from a camera malfunction that you cannot reverse. The corrective action is.. Press the RESET button located on the lower right side of the control button, then turn on the power.
