Look on the memory card - is the lock switch in the "Lock" position? If so, unlock it.

Sounds like two things are happening here. You may be putting the card in improperly...check the manual to see if the card should be face up or face down. Also, be sure the slide switch on the side of the card is in the unlocked position.

Every Time i Put In My Memorie Chip It Tells Me protected Card It also don't let me erase or go to the menu, how can i fix it


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 memory card is saying Write protection every time i put it in my camera. What do i do to fix it? it is not on lock mode because i flipped the switch on it.


The actual switch that detects whether the memory card is in write protect or not inside the camera is probably stuck in the "write protect" position. With a flashlight, inspect the switch in the memory card compartment.

I put a sandisk pro duo memory card into my camera but it says it cannot format because the memory stick is protected; how do i fix this problem so i can use it with my camera?


There is a small latch on the left side of the memory disk jacket where you will find Lock written, If you pull it to the unlock position then the write protection on the card will be removed. Please do that and use the card.

Camera or memory card "CARD FULL" error


Check to see if in your settings you are putting the pictures onto the memory card or the cameras internal memory. If there is no internal memory, then I guess that's no help. Also check to see if the card is write protected (a little switch on the side of it).

What does write protect mean?


"Write Protect" means that something is locked and your device (camera) cannot "write" to it's storage area.
What type of "storage media" are you using?
For example:  the camera's internal memory, a CompactFlash card, a Memory Stick, an "xD-Picture Card" (micro, mini or regular sized), or a Secure Digital/MultiMediaCard.
[Did you put something  (a small plastic card of some sort) into a slot on the camera before or after turning it on?
Those little cards usually have a tiny button (also called a switch or lever) on them that will move back and forth to lock (write protect) or unlock it. This sounds like the memory card inside your camera is locked or "Write Protected.

To fix this simply take it out, closely examine the memory for the button- the button will be closer to the word "lock" or "protect" and all you need to do is gently slide it in the opposite direction from where it currently is. Put it back into the camera and see if it still says "Write Protect."

Let me know...
