Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

the camera is locked in - 6c99e31.jpg

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

1) Take the card out, check the card, halfway up the left hand side, there may be a sliding notch. Move it to "Write enable".

Cant put pictures on the viewer


You have to download the driver from either the VistaQuest website or from the CD that came with it when you bought the product. Then search for the file on your hard drive and try to open it. Your system may be incompatible with Digital Multicam so it may take a few attempts.

Here is a link to the manual for the viewer.
http://www.vistaquestusa.com/support/manuals/digital_cams/VQ500/VQ-500ViewerManualRev2.pdf

Basically, after you plug in the viewer, turn on the usb mode (using the power button on the side). The viewer will then begin to download the software needed in the background...(And people wonder why windows has the security problems that it does....) After a while it will ask to restart the computer. Do this.

After restarted, go to My Computer, click on the DPFMate listed under Devices with Removable Storage. That will load up the software described in the manual.
