SD and SDHC 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.

How do I unprotect pics on a 0lympus c-765


As it was the camera that put the protection on ..You need to put the card into the camera..And ..UN-TICK each one to unprotect them...The idea of the protected photos is so you cant erase them when you format the card.

Cant take pics,says card protected. used earlier and was fine, now wont take pics at all


Hello,

Have you checked your memory card to see if it IS in fact protected? It is amazingly easy for some camera memory cards to become accidentally protected.

Check and see if you card has a switch that allows it to be set to read only. And if it does make sure it is not set to read only.

I cannot delete a picture as the screen says file protected. How do I remove?


if you cant delete any pictures then your sd card is locked which means you take it out and slide the little movable plastic,
if its one pic then you must unlock it in the properties menu

There is write protect error and i can't take pictures


If the camera has an internal memory and that is where the pics are being saved to i need the model number. But in the mean time if you are using an sd card try pulling out the card. Some cards have a slide on them that locks the card so you cant write over pic. What happens is some times handling the cards and inserting them the slide accidentally gets moved. this link is to a picture of the lock.

Protected card pops up and I cant take any pics?


Remove the card from the camera.  There is a small slide tab on the card which shows a picture of a lock.  Move the slide tab to the unlock position.  If this doesn't fix it, replace the card.
