Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I just bought the olympus X-42 and it took pictures fine. Then I uploaded them onto my computer. After that I wanted to take more pictures and now it says, "Write Protected" I looked at the instructions on how to remove it, it says, "Use a computer to cancel the read-only setting." I don't know where that is.

This is almost always a setting with the "write protect" or "lock / unlock" tab on the SD or SDHC memory card itself - and is easily remedied. Remove the memory card from the camera if it isn't already, and look along the left edge of the card. Find a small tab and slide it forward (to the unlock position) and carefully slip the card back into the camera and try again. If it reports locked again, carefully remove the card to see if the tab has moved back to the locked position.

In exteme cases: If the tab is moving to the locked position during the insertion process, you could place a small amount of tape along the card edge - over the tab - and carefully insert the card again. You might have to remove some tape to allow the card to fit into to slot. If you never lock the card - you could put a very small drop of super glue on the tab to hold it in place. Wait for the glue to set completely before inserting into the camera.

Please rate this reply if it was found to be helpful. Good luck!

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

If you were uploading the pics to a program on your computer, it may not be capable of video transfer, only still jpegs. You could use a card reader to download the videos to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you could try to play them with another program on your computer. You could also download a free copy of Quicktime from Apple.com to play the videos. typrice_25.jpg

Goto any radio shack and get a external memory card reader this will allow you to get your pictures if the camera or cable is defective.
