Try unlocking the write protection on your camera. The user's manual should explain how to do so thru the camera's software settings.
Otherwise, you can open it up on your computer using a memory card reader (a piece of hardware that your can buy at Wal-Mart for less than $20) and copy off your pictures that way, then erase them off the card while connected to your computer. You can also turn off the card's write protection while it's connected to the computer via the card reader.

Can erase all pic at one time


The best way to erase all your pics at one time is to format the memory card. In fact, the memory card should be formatted each time you finish downloading the pics to your computer. Formatting not only erases the pics but also cleans up the directory structure and file information. FixYa is full of people asking how to retrieve pics from memory cards that haven't been formatted recently.

If your memeory card is a SD card then -
SD and Micro SD memory cards has a smallslide switch on the edge of the card, which write protects data on the memorycard. Slide the switch from the READ position tothe WRITE position, which is furthest away from the contacts.You can then delete the phots using your computer OR format the memory card using the camera.

My card says it is write protected for no seeming reason and is not letting me erase my pics from it.


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked/protected", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. The second most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. There are also other common causes if the above didn't help, with troubleshooting steps for this problem listed here.

Cant take pics,says card protected. used earlier and was fine, now wont take pics at all


Hello,

Have you checked your memory card to see if it IS in fact protected? It is amazingly easy for some camera memory cards to become accidentally protected.

Check and see if you card has a switch that allows it to be set to read only. And if it does make sure it is not set to read only.

Having pics on both the internal memory and a memory card is asking for trouble. Take out the card and download the internal memory to your computer. Then, go into the menu and find "format" and erase the internal memory. Then, download all the pics from the memory card using a separate card reader. Then, insert the card into the camera and do the format thing again to erase and optimize the card. Now you have a fresh start...never use the internal memory again.

My samsung camera wont let me take pics or videos b/c it says "CARD LOCKED" everytime i try to take pics


When this problem occur you need to set the memory card unlock or not protected. Remove the memory card from camera and you can see a small button in the memory card, so you need to slide that to set the memory card unlock or not protected.
