SOURCE: how do unprotect card how do i delete pictures

Remove the memory card from the camera, look along the one edge for a tiny switch, slide it towards the contacts to unlock the card, the switch that is in the furthest position from the contacts is in the lock position to prevent deletion of the photographs. Now! if the switch is already in the unlock position slide it back and forth to reset, if this fails replace the card.

How to unlock a photo in camara


The protect function allows a user to protect a picture from accidental deletion. To unprotect a picture on your camera, scroll to the protected picture that you want to delete, then press the Menu button (the button to the right of the Play button.) Scroll down the menu and you should come to an option that allows you to Protect/Unprotect the picture. Since your picture is currently protected, deselect that option. You should then be able to delete the picture normally.

Alternatively, you could also format the memory card, however this deletes ALL photos and data you have on the memory card. If you are trying to completely clear the memory, this is the best way. After turning on your camera, simply press the Menu button, scroll to Setup, then scroll down to Format. Select Format, it will ask you if you want to format the memory card, or the camera's built-in memory. Format whichever one you want to clear, if you are using a memory card then your pictures are stored on the memory card. It will take a few seconds to format.

Hope this helps.

How to delete protected images


If you want to delete everything on the card, the easiest way is to format the card. This will wipe out all images (and any other data as well) on the card, whether protected or not. The Format command is in the Setup menu. Details on page 32 of the manual.
To delete individual protected pictures, unprotect them first. From the Playback menu select Protect/Unprotect (the key icon). Details on page 84.

It sounds as if the card was not formatted for the camera before it was put to use. My suggestion is that you attempt to download the images that you do have to the computer, then format the memory card. Always format a new card and after each time you download pictures from the card to the computer.

If you want to delete ALL your pictures, the easiest and best way is to format the card. In fact, the card should be formatted each time you finish downloading your pictures to your computer. FixYa is full of people asking how to retrieve pictures from cards that haven't been formatted regularly.
