You didn't specify what type of camera you have, so I'm going to assume it uses SD and/or 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.

Whenever i turn on the cam, it says that the memory is locked


SD type cards have a little switch on the card that can write protect or "lock" it. Take the card out of the camera and check this switch. To unlock it, it should be moved towards the edge of the card which has the electrical contacts.

There is also a software protection feature on some cameras, but this is used to protect a folder or individual picture from accidental deletion, not the whole memory. You set or release this protection from the camera menus.

Whenever I tried to make s shot it says "protected


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked/protected", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

Whenever I try to take a picture it want take. I keep seeing protected card


Possible that the card has the small lever on it pulled down so that it protects from over wrting.
So remove the card and look on the side for aa small switch showing a direction to protect, move it off and it will allow the card to write again.

I have a Fuji finepix J110w. I am receiving a PROTECTED CARD message when I turn on my camera. It wont take pictures.


Look at your memory card. SD 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.

For the newborn's picture the solution is simple: transfer them to your computer either directly from camera, or by making use of a card reader.
By the way Congratulations for the baby.

Firstly, whenever you put the media card into a card reader, ALWAYS turn write-protect on, to protect the images already on the card.
Secondly, AFAIK, the only way that your computer could have 'wiped' the card is if you told it to Move the images, rather than just Copy them. Again, setting write-protect would have solved this.
