You didn't specify the make and model camera, but I assume it uses SD and/or SD cards. 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. 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.

Write protect


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.

What does 'Write Protect' mean and how do I get rid of it?


That means that your SD card (or whichever memory card you use) is write protected and you cannot edit the card's content in any way.

Take your memory card out of the camera and plug it into your computer. There should be a place for you to change the memory card's protections that way. Sometimes, as with USB drives, there might be a small sliding lock physically located on the card which will also write protect the device.

How do i turn off protected card on my camera? i have a sanyo vpc-e1000


If you mean by removing the memory card protection, turn off your camera and take out the memory card. Look for a small tab in the memory card that can be adjusted up or down. Usually, to unprotect, it should be adjusted upwards or if it doesn't adjust it downwards.

Card protection on wii not take pictures


I assume you mean the card protection on the SD card??? Turn off the camera, pop out the SD card, slide the little switch on the side of the SD card from locked to unlocked, re-insert the card the way it came out, and turn the camera back on. If it still doesn't work, take thed batteries out, reinsert them, then turn it on again. It should be ready now to record onto the external memory. If it still doesn't, get the manual out and check on transferring fiels from internal to external memory.

What does write protect mean?


"Write Protect" means that something is locked and your device (camera) cannot "write" to it's storage area.
What type of "storage media" are you using?
For example:  the camera's internal memory, a CompactFlash card, a Memory Stick, an "xD-Picture Card" (micro, mini or regular sized), or a Secure Digital/MultiMediaCard.
[Did you put something  (a small plastic card of some sort) into a slot on the camera before or after turning it on?
Those little cards usually have a tiny button (also called a switch or lever) on them that will move back and forth to lock (write protect) or unlock it. This sounds like the memory card inside your camera is locked or "Write Protected.

To fix this simply take it out, closely examine the memory for the button- the button will be closer to the word "lock" or "protect" and all you need to do is gently slide it in the opposite direction from where it currently is. Put it back into the camera and see if it still says "Write Protect."
