SD 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. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Get it off "protected card" mode?


If the card is a Secure Digital (SD), SDHC or SDXC there is a write protect switch on the card which can be slid up and down. Up means it can be written too, down means the card cannot be written too. If the card is in the position where you can write to it but the camera is saying the card is still protected it maybe a faulty card or the camera may have a fault.

It says my memory card is protected


On the side of the memory card, there is a small slider that locks and protects the memory card from being overwritten. Yours may be in the locked position. Simply pull out your memory card form your camera and unlock your memory card by sliding the tab.
Hope this helps,

Finepix J20 Digital Camera- says:PROTECTED CARD!


My bet is that the little switch on the SD card is in the "lock" position. Switch it off and try again...

Card protected


When the card is protected you need to remove it first. You can slide the small button at right side of the card so that it will be being protected. After you've slide the small button you can use your camera.
