There are 2 ways to do it. Firstly you can format the card - this will delete all images, including protected ones. Second method is to display the image in full frame view mode (or highlight it in thumbnail view) and then press the AE-L /AF-L button. This will remove the protection - or protect an unprotected image.
Hope that helps

    It sure did help. I probably accidentally pressed the AE-L button and had 2 photos protected in my camera for months that couldn't delete.
    Thanks a bunch!

I want to delete protected pictures


If the picture on the camera is protected, unprotect the picture first. In playback mode, scroll to the protected picture, then press the AE-L/AF-L button on the back of the camera.

If the memory card is protected, take the card out of the camera. SD 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.

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.

Pictures were protected for a temporary photo shoot now I would like to have them unprotected to delete. How does one go about deleting pictures from a Nikon D60?


To unprotect a picture, while viewing the picture press the protect button (marked with a key) to the right of the viewfinder. To delete the picture, press the delete button (marked with a trashcan) below the multiselector.

How do i delete pictures that are protected


you need to go into your menu/camera settings and find the bit that gives you the options for protecting or locking the images.

If you cant find it in your menu or setup options then go to display mode. Go to the photo that is protected then hit your menu buttons to unprotect it.

Why is my memory card write protected


Hello there,

You cannot delete pictures if the memory card inside your camera is "Write Protecte". What you need to do to unprotect it is to turn off the camera and take out your memory card. You will find a small 'tab' that might be pulled up or down. If it is pulled down, you can slide it up or vice versa. Put it back inside the camera and start deleting pictures.

Hope this helps you. Good luck!

Sounds like you protected the picture. Either unprotect it first, or else just format the card.
