It would help if you told us what camera we are supposed to be helping with. My guess is that you have an SD memory card in the camera and that you have inadvertently set the tiny "lock" switch on. Take the memory card out and examine it closely.

But I could easily be wrong as I don't really know what memory card your anonymous camera uses.

You didn't specify what make and model 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.

Damaged and Corrupted picture


sounds like your computer is not recognizing the proper format the pictures are saved in.My XP doesn't have a problem reading them(.jpeg), but after 8 cards...not the card, which leaves either the camera or computer...I have experienced some image formats not compatible with some computer programs, but have not ran into this problem with these cameras.

Hi i have a pentax E30,after taking a picture it says the card block and does not show the picture taken it will also say the is no image


Hi,

Do you know that the SD card has a little switch on its side?
It is a small sliding thing on the other side from the cut out corner.

If this is in the lock position it will stop you saving your pictures to the card. This is to protect pictures that you want to keep.

To save pictures to the card the switch must be in the up position.

Camera does not show taken ( saved) pictures


problem is in memory card...i think. try with cleaning memory card contacts. use pure alcohol and small piece of cotton to clean dust or other dirt. if this not help, try some card reader to transfer images from camera to PC. try also with some other camera. it's possible memory card is damaged and you can't do nothing. try reinstall nikon software on your PC.

Write protect message appears on screen


Sounds as if the memory card may be corrupted. In order to remove the write protect, make sure you have downloaded and saved all of the images from the memory card to your computer and then having the card in the camera you will need to run the format option and this will permanently remove the write protect as well as all of the images from the card.
The card should be able to be used again after the write protect is removed.

Memory card is write protected


Take your memory card out of the camera and switch the position of the little "lock" tab. That should fix it and you can start saving images.

Xd memory card


A card access error may indicate that an xD-Picture Card memory card is in a write-protected condition. xD-Picture Card memory cards have a special protection feature to ensure that your pictures are kept safe. NOTE: During this condition, you can still use the printer for printing and saving photos from the xD-Picture Card to a secure location, such as the computer hard drive. To resolve this error, try the following:
  • Reinsert the xD-Picture Card memory card into your camera and turn on the camera. In most cases, the camera automatically makes the necessary changes.
  • Reformat the xD-Picture Card memory card. See the documentation that came with your camera for instructions on reformatting the memory card. Note that this process erases the pictures currently saved to your memory card. To save these pictures, transfer them to the computer before reformatting the memory card. Once you reformat the memory card, transfer those photos back to the memory card using the computer.

Saving pictures


The camera has a very limited storage space on itself. It probably isnt saving the pictures on the card because the card is write protected (probably on accident)
just pull out the card and on it is a tiny little switch. just push that into the next position and it is no longer write protected. the write protection is there to prevent you from losing your photos, to put more photos on it you will have to deactive the protection with that switch, its usually white colored
