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.

L can not copy anything to SD card it says remove writer protection


Take your memory card out of the camera and switch the position of the "lock" tab. One position is for "locked" (i.e., "Write Protected") and the other position will allow the card to be written to (unlocked). Some cameras have image protection built into the on-camera software and you may need to configure this there.

Even though i have a brand new sd memory card my Fujifilm Finepix Z camera still says "protected card" and won't let me do anything at all


Look at the 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's your problem?While trying to take a picture it keeps coming up with write projects and won't allow me to take the picture


I assume it's actually saying "write protect" and not "write project".

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.

Cant take pics,says card protected. used earlier and was fine, now wont take pics at all


Hello,

Have you checked your memory card to see if it IS in fact protected? It is amazingly easy for some camera memory cards to become accidentally protected.

Check and see if you card has a switch that allows it to be set to read only. And if it does make sure it is not set to read only.

Take your memory card out and look to see if you may have moved the sliding switch on the memory card, if you have move it back.

Fujifilm finpix z


I had this same problem and as the **** above suggested I read the manual. The problem is not in the camera it was on the memory card. There is a little (yellow in my case) slide button on the side of the memory card itself that you can slide to "Lock". Mine was inadvertantly in the Lock position, once I slid it out of the lock position, the "Card Protected" error no longer occurred on my Fujifilm FinePix Z.
