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

Memory card is write protected


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.


You should be able to read the card whether its protected or not. In fact I always protect the card before putting it into my computer so as to prevent the computer from doing anything to the card.

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.

How to delete pictures from a d-460


Judging by your explanation, the photos are on your sd digital memory card rather than the internal memory.
Since you are unable to delete just those 15, it sounds like you might have accidentally enabled the "protect" function.

Get out your manual (or download a new one) and read about how to protect/unprotect photos, and also read about how to format your card in camera - something you should do on a VERY regular basis for the health of your memory card.

While you have the book out, read ALL of it - twice! You'll be amazed how much you'll learn.

Only 18 out of 300 images are shown on my laptop. HELP!


The first assumption is that you can see all 300 pics on you camera.  If this is correct, then they must be in one of two places:
- in the camera memory
- on the memory card.
The next assumption is that you are connecting the camera direct to your laptop.  So:
Take out the SD card and see if the pics are still on the camera.  From what you say, they should not be.
If they ARE NOT - then get a card reader.  Get one anyway, they are always useful. Now plug the card reader in, put the SD card into the reader, and now look at it.  You don't say what laptop, or what operating system, so it has to be whatever you would normally use to look for files.  See if there are any extra folders that could be holding your pics.
If the pics ARE still on camera, then maybe the card write-protect switch is set to read only.  If this is the case, get another card, format it in the camera, and copy the pics onto the new card. Now put that into the card-reader, and see what folder and file structure you have.
Your camera only has 16mb of internal storage and that is not a lot. Maybe only 40 low quality JPEG files. So if you can see all 300 or so, they should be on the card and not the camera. If the laptop file system cannot find them, them maybe the H-P software can.  Three folders does not sound a lot for 18 pics unless they are high quality JPEGs.
My guess is that they are on the card, and the camera to PC link is not picking up the card.

Fujifilm FinePix Z20fd protected card??


The memory card should have a little switch on it, try it in the other position. It is a safety lock to stop it getting wiped.

Write Protect error and I think all my pics dissapeared!


If you are using an SD card, it could be possible that the Write Protect tab (the yellow tab on the top right) is in the 'lock' position. Slide it back and try again. If this does not work, make sure you are using the card and not the internal memory to store images.

Nikon Coolpix 5200 Getting Message ""Memory Card is Write Protected"


Inspect your SD card carefully. Some SD cards come with a write-protect lock switch on the side of the card. When looking at an SD card from the top there is one required notch on the right side (the side with the diagonal notched corner) and on the left side there is usually a switch. This is the write-protect switch. When this write-protect switch is in the down position (away from the end that is inserted) then it is write protected and read-only. When the switch is in the up position it is write enabled.
