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.
You pressed format on your camera.That meant that you formatted the memory card of your camera.All your pictures are saved on the memory card of your Canon digital camera automatically.So you can recover pictures from memory card with data recovery software.I have a professional program on my computer that can recover data after deeply scanning your memory card to look for lost data you accidentally deleted or formatted. But you had better have stopped using the memory card of your camera. Because, once the pictures were overwritten by new ones,they are gone for good.By the way,you can download it and scan your memory card for free to preview whether your erased photos can be recovered.Get it from http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoverystandard.htm
Insert a memory card and format it if necessary. Press the playback button (right-pointing triangle). Press MENU. Select "Copy". Select camera to card. Select "All".
This procedure will copy pictures from the camera's internal memory to the memory card. It leaves the pictures in the internal memory -- you can delete them by removing the card and then selecting "Memory Format" from the Setup menu.
Hi,The solution is to format the memory card or initialize the memory card.Note formatting the memory card will delete all the pictures or data stored.

The answer is it depends on whether or not you conducted a "low level" format or not. Such a format will actually write over the card making photo recovery unlikely. But with Canon cameras, format is normally a quick erase (which is recoverable), UNLESS you manually check the "low level format" box in the menu (did you do that?). But either way, there are numerous freeware software options available for photo recovery that may work for you.
Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:
First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.
Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer. Download this photo recovery software http://www.asoftech.com/apr/ Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.
You may have never formatted your memory card. This can eventually lead to errors like you're experiencing. First download all available pictures from the card. Next turn on the camera in preview mode. Press the menu button, then select the "tools" menu (second one from left). Go down the menu to the menu item stating your memory card's capacity and select it. Next select "Yes" to format. Note that this will also totally erase your card, so again make sure to FIRST download your pictures.
If you used the SD/MMC memory card in another brand of camera or device, you may need to format the card in your new EasyShare digital camera. (You may have noticed a "Memory Card Needs Formatting" message when you inserted the card.)
CAUTION: Formatting deletes all pictures and videos, including those that are protected. Removing a card during formatting may damage the card.
To format the SD/MMC memory card or the internal memory of the camera:
Transfer images to the computer before formatting the memory card.
Press the camera Menu button.
Highlight SETUP MENU, and then press the OK button.
Highlight FORMAT, and then press the OK button.
Highlight an option - MEMORY CARD (deletes everything on the card), CANCEL (exits without formatting), or INTERNAL MEMORY (deletes everything in internal memory).
Press the OK button.
Highlight Continue, and then press the OK button. Wait until formatting is finished before removing the card.
When formatting is complete, the SETUP MENU is displayed.
Press the Menu button to exit the menu.
