If the card is locked, unlock it. 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 image is locked, cancel its protection. While viewing the image, press FUNC/SET to toggle the protection.

How do I delete all photos on my chip


Based on what you have said, it appears that the write-protect has been activated on the card. With the card's label facing you and the corner cut-off to the right, you'll see a little slot just a bit above the halfway point on the card. In that slot is a tab. If the tab is down toward the bottom of the card, it's in the write-protect or locked position. You cannot delete anything while the card is in the write-protect mode. Simply slide the tab to the top of the slot to unlock it and your delete function should work.

If it does not, you've got another problem which you may be able to fix by formatting the card. Once again, you cannot format a card in the write-protected mode.

If you can't format it...which will delete any pictures on the card... then the card is probably bad and should be replaced. Cards are cheap and really not worth spending a lot of time trying to solve the problem.

If you can't format a new card, then you've got a camera problem and it's time to call or contact Nikon support.

My Nikon P90's memory card is write protected...How do I change this to delete images?


SD/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.

Mesage "unable to use card"


SD Memory Cards have a write-protect switch to prevent image
data from being deleted. By sliding the switch to the bottom of
the card, the data will be protected. images cannot be recorded
when the card is protected. If an attempt is made to record or
delete an image with the camera, the card-locked message will
appear on the monitor.

"Card Write Protected" has come up on my Cannon 450D and I am unable to remove it - any help much appreciated. Cheers.


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.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

I cannot delete images off my sd card because it says its write protected. How do I turn off the write protection on my SanDisk 2GB sd card? is there a setting on my computer that i can change?


Most likely, there is a switch on the side of the card. Flip it over from where it is now and then you should be good to go. If that doesn't work, select the file you are trying to delete and right click and go to properties, then unselect read only in the lower area of the window.

If your pictures are on the SD card in your camera, many of the sd cards have a small micro switch on one edge that will lock your card... you may want to pull it out of the camera and make sure that the physical lock isn't set..

Downloaded files wont delete


Hi.. If the files were loaded to the SD card directlt from your computer via a card reader, try deleting them while in Safe Mode.If loaded directly to your phone, check if there is a setting on the phone or on the file properties to protect the files. If so, adjust it as needed, then attempt to delete the files again.

Need to delete memory


You need to remove the memory card from the camcorder and place it into a pc or photo shops computer. This will allow you to view the saved items on the memory card. You can then save these to disc and delete the contents on the card.
