It sounds like your memory card is write-protected. SD and 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.

    What happens with a different card? Or else what happens when you try the card in a different camera?

I need the software for a polaroid i1236 digital camera

You don't need any special software to use your camera.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.

Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.
1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment. Also put the camera in sun tight for few hours.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.
3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine . Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec .. in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.

Sometimes, too, my Polaroid i1236 camera will not power on ... is there an easy fix?

I have also had this problem. I have checked the batteries and they showed good charge. I changed out the batteries and the camera worked OK. I assumed that the camera is very voltage sensetive, and that the battery change must have given it the little bit extra it needed.

My new i1236 Polaroid digital camera will turn

1) The card could be write protected, check the side of the card see if there's a small notch to slide up or down.

2) The camera could have photo protection option switched on, you have to go through the user manual and the camera menu to switch that off.

3) If you don't get too far with the first options, as its new, take it back to the vendor and ask them to demonstrate it to you and to your satisfaction. If there is a problem with the camera, request a replacement or refund under warranty.
