Yes. The format operation will delete all pictures, protected or not. The protection only prevents accidental deletion via the delete button.

Erasing a protected imaage on cannon t3 rebel camera


Use the menu to unprotect the image then you can delete. Also you can format the card but that will remove all the images on the card so make sure you've saved it elsewhere.

How cani unlock my camera? i cant delete my pictures?


Erasing a memory card: when erasing a memory card, individual photos are deleted from their directories on the card. You can erase one or more user selected images at a time, or erase all images at one time. However, any images that you've selected to be "protected" through another menu option will not be removed during the erasure process.

Formatting a memory card: format a memory card sample menuFormatting, on the other hand, deletes all images from a memory card, even the ones that may have been protected. It recreates the file system including new directories and folders where images are saved on the card.

Unlike erasing, formatting improves the overall performance of a card.

Low level formatting: some digital cameras offer a low level format in addition to the standard format option. With a low level format, all data on the card is deleted. New directories and folders are also recreated during this process.

A low-level format of a high speed memory card helps ensure smooth continuous shooting at a constant interval. For optimal video performance, it's also recommended that a low level format be done sometime prior to recording.

In camera, not computer: though opinions vary, many recommend formatting a memory card in a digital camera, not via a computer. If you plan to use a memory card that was previously used in another camera, format the card in the new camera before taking any shots.

Hope this helps and just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

My camera is saying that my card cannot be used ( sd card) I erased the pictures on it and still it comes up with that. last time I used my camera it worked fine. What do i do?


Try formatting the card in the camera using the camera's format feature located in its menus. If offered "low level" format, select it. Note that this will also totally erase the card, so do this only after you're certain that all needed photos have been backed up to your computer.

How do I erase my memory card? Thanks, Chris


Hi,

You can format your memory card using the camera's menu to "format" removes all files and reinstalls the cameras' directory to the memory card for use in the camera.

Note:- Formatting the memory card erase all the data including protected images and other file types. So, once you formatted the memory card there is no way to restore them.

Rating the solution is highly appreciated...Good Luck

My Camrea tells me that the card is protected


Before inserting your SD memory card, slide the write-switch to unlock position. Insert the SD card, go to ‘setup menu’, then ‘format’ , format the SD card. All pictures will be erased. Refer your manual on page 87.
