You didn't specify the make and model of the camera, so I'll assume it uses SD/SDHC cards.

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.

Remove write protect error


Look at your memory card. 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.

I cant format my microsd because of write sector error


hi
make sure your card reader is not locked. Most card readers have facilities to lock a memory stick. If left in that position, they write protect the memory stick. Meaning you can neither transfer to it nor change and sometimes remove stuffs from the memory stick. Insert the memory stick into another card reader and try formating again or check the memory card itself if the write protect feature is part of its structure. Usually there's a hint of that in form of tiny diagrams and signs of how to lock and unlock the memory stick. hope this helps

Canon PowerShot SX20 IS Digital Camera keeps giving me a memory card error. The memory card is a 4gig PNY memory card (lower budget)


Make sure the slide switch on the side of the card is unlocked. Your camera may just want you to format the card in the camera. Download any pics from it first using a card reader if necessary.

Remove write protection from micro-sd card


  1. Remove the Sandisk SD card from your portable electronic device. Ensure that the SD card can be safely ejected before removing.
  2. Locate the write protect lock. The write protect lock should be on the side opposite the cut-off corner of the SD Card.
  3. Disengage the write protect lock. To do this, gently slide the small switch upward, toward the top of the SD Card. The card should now have write protection disabled.
jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); });

Turning on the camera


Please look at the memory card closely. If there is a write protect switch, it will give you this error. Please ensure that the write protect switch on the memory card is not in the lock, or protected position.

See more information about SD cards here.

Let me know if this helps!

"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.
