Question about Olympus Stylus 770 SW Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have a stylus 5010 - some how the camera is hung up it says "write protect" when I turn it on and when I try to use it. I can go into the menu but I cannot do anything as "write protect" shows whenever I try to activate a function. I recently loaned it to a friend and he brought it back this way, there is another camera that we have 2010 that is acting the same way - could this be a virus that he has on his system or is this sometype of reset that needs to happen? Please help.

Does the memory card have a slide switch on the side? It should be set to "unlocked". If that doesn't work, use a card reader to download any pics from the card and then insert it back into the camera. Go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions. By the way...cameras can't get a virus.

Write protection

Look at your memory card. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

I cant take picture using my digital camera olympus u says SD card write protected what should i do? and i cant transfer my important pics in my pc plss help

Remove the SD card from the camera, now look along the one edge for a switch, slide it towards the contacts to unlock the card. The switch that is farthest from the contacts is in the locked position, write protected. If the switch is in the unlock position slide it back and forth to reset the SD card, if no change replace it.

Having gone over a month without a response to my query, I assume my suggestion to use a card reader eliminated the need for a driver.

Download PICASA:

It should populate into the window that launches when you plug in your camera. If it doesn't, launch Picasa and then plug in your camera. Either way, Picasa will go immediately to importing photos and you can pick which ones you want to transfer.
