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. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

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.

My kodak easy share camera is not allowing me to format a memory card when i insert it and therefore doeas not allow me to take photos. how can i format a memory card


Hi,

This sounds like the write protection lock is on. Take the card out of the camera and look on the left hand side for a small switch. slide the switch up and pop it back in the camera and see if it will let you format it.

If the write protect lock is off then the card maybe faulty.



Good luck.

Check the menu, many cameras allow you to enable photo protection, you may have some photos protected. You won't be able until that protection is removed.

Card Protected


If you read the manual there is a section on protecting frames. You should be able to go into the menu on the camera and unprotect all, which should allow you to then write new photos and remove old ones on the card.
