Hey sterndp,
If the memory card you have is an SD card which I believe it is the card should have a switch on the side of it. This switch is for protecting the images, and what you need to do is move the switch to the unlock position. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

When switching on my camra it shows protected card across the screen and wont work


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.

Shows the error memory card is protected


When this problem occur you need to set the memory card not protected. Remove the memory card from camera and you can see a small button in the memory card, so you need to slide that to set the memory card not protected.

Have fujifilm finepix f40fd. protected card shows. wont clear


I had the same problem with a Fufifilm camera. When I looked closely at the memory card I noticed a little white sliding button on the left hand side. When it is in the down position the card is locked or protected. Just slide the button up and put it back in your camera and it should work.

"Memory card is protected"


This error message indicates that the memory card is locked. The switch on the memory card is in the write-protect position. Reset the switch as shown on the camera screen.

The camera screen displays error message


This error message means that the card is corrupted or formatted for another digital camera. Turn off the camera. Insert a new card or format the card. CAUTION: Formatting deletes all pictures and videos, including those that are protected. Removing a card during formatting may damage the card.
