Take the card out.  There's a little switch on the card to write-protect it and stop you recording over important stuff.  Move the switch to the other position.
Happy recording!

My camcorder won't record. The memory card icon on the screen shows a lock on it as though it's protected so the camera won't record while in a bag etc. How do I turn that feature off so that I can...

Look at your memory card. 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.

My camera after inserting memory it's showing protected card and i'm not able to take new photo's or delete anything

Most of the time it's because the card is full, try another card. If that don't work check the memory card for a little slide mechanism, it's used to lock the card. It is usually located on the side.

I just purchased this camera and inserted a memory card. Now, when I try to take a picture, I get the 'card protected' error. How do I remove this error and take pictures?

Without knowing the make and model of this new camera I can only speculate on the problem however in my opinion you need to unlock the protected card I'm giving a diagram of an SD card here.
Slide this little switch to the top or towards the gold contacts.
Another thing you will need to do is format the memory card your camera may call this initialize.
Formatting a memory card makes it ready to accept information files from the camera. I hope you have your manual because without knowing the camera make and model i can only suggest where to look for this feature. Most often this function is in the set up menu, once the card is unlocked you need to find this format highlight it and press the okay button once done the camera will function properly as long as you have set the day date and time. Day date and time once set is held in the camera internal memory so you don't have to input the information each time you turn the camera off and back on again. Happy New Year

My camera says memory card is write protected

If you have a slot on your printer or computer for the compact flash card, insert and try reformatting the card itself.

If you use a usb cable, hook up the camera as if uploading pictures to the computer and try reformatting the CF card that way.

To reformat, find the drive in "My Computer" that corresponds to the card or the camera. Right click on it and choose 'format' from the menu. Another window will come up that has a small box to check for 'Quick Format". Check the box and click OK. You'll receive a prompt that all data will be erased. Click OK.

If this doesn't work, it's time for a new CF card.

Memory card is write protected

Take your memory card out of the camera and switch the position of the little "lock" tab. That should fix it and you can start saving images.

Memory card is write protected

thought the cards have a little tab on them so they can be "write protected" it is a little plastic tab on the side of the memory1.gif card you slide up and down. I know most SD cards1.gif have it, CF cards dont so if its anything besides SD memory its probobly the memory card or some little switch or somthing in the camera that tells the camera when the card is in the "Locked" or "Write protected" mode.

Looking at my SD memory cards1.gif they have a little arrow on the edge and they say "Lock" pointing down, the slider is up. Move yours both ways, maybe it has a bad connection in the card (im not sure what it actualy does) or its in a position the camera thinks its locked?
