    Are you using an SD memory card or an xD card? Your camera will accept either, but the answer is different depending upon which one.

Make sure that the card is detecting to the PC as you insert into the cardreader If so the card must be formatted after assuring the quality of the files.
If files are not detected please use a search for finding files and deleting . Format and now try the card on the camera.

SOURCE: the camera reads memory card

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.

SOURCE: My camera is showing protected card in the face

The normal answer to this problem is to start talking about the 'lock' slider on the side of the memory card. However, your problem must be different because your camera uses the xD-Picture card... and it has no such slider! In this case, the most likely reason is that the card has been corrupted in some way, and the camera's error message is more of a general nature, triggered by some inability to write to the card. Your best bet is to make sure that you've copied all you want off the card and then use the camera's 'format' function to reformat the card. I advise using the camera for the format function because this guarantees the correct file system. If you use your computer to format it, you may easily get the wrong one. However if you need to do it this way, see which file system is currently in use on the drive before you start. Go to "My Computer" and right click on the correct drive and choose "Properties". Examples of filesystems are "FAT" (probably FAT16), "FAT32" and NTFS; to make sure your reformat is successful, ensure you use the same filesystem as before.

Actually, I'd like to thank you for drawing my attention to this, because I've been advising people with SD cards that the error must be caused by the slider... however, from what I've learned now, it's also possible that their cards can be fixed by reformatting, too.

SOURCE: My camera says card protected

There is a tiny switch on the left side of the card. One setting is to lock it....the opposite way is to open it for taking pics. It's a safety so you can't accidentallybigdtexan_1.jpg delete any pictures, but also won't let you take any more. (see pic)

What does card protected mean?


Wheb you have a SD, SDHC or SDXC memory card and you put the switch to the lock position, the card is protected, That means nothing can change the files that are stored on the card. Not by wiring, not by deleting and not by formatting. Keep the lock with up, towards the golden connection points.
On the picture the 64 GB card is unlocked. `the 32 GB card is locked 8ab871eb-243a-48dd-a8d8-58e5df95d568.jpg

You should be able to read the card whether its protected or not. In fact I always protect the card before putting it into my computer so as to prevent the computer from doing anything to the card.

Memory card is write protected


thought the cards have a little tab on them so they can be "write protected" it is a little plastic tab on the side of the memory1.gif card you slide up and down. I know most SD cards1.gif have it, CF cards dont so if its anything besides SD memory its probobly the memory card or some little switch or somthing in the camera that tells the camera when the card is in the "Locked" or "Write protected" mode.

Looking at my SD memory cards1.gif they have a little arrow on the edge and they say "Lock" pointing down, the slider is up. Move yours both ways, maybe it has a bad connection in the card (im not sure what it actualy does) or its in a position the camera thinks its locked?
