On your memory card there's a tiny slider button. Slide it along to the other end and see if that helps.

ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS AND VIDEOS TO A COMPUTER

If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer.
Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

Look at your memory card. 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.

Since you neglected to specify the make and model of your camera, I'm going to assume it uses SD/SDHC cards.

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 can't delete photos off my ScanDisc stick unless I manually do them individually, nor can I upload photos from my computer ONTO my camera. I get a "write-protected" message. How do I undo the write...


First of all, you're not supposed to upload from the computer to the camera. You risk corrupting the card and camera. If you want to delete all the pics from the memory card, just insert the card into the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions.
