Kodak M853 error message

My camera gives me a blue screen with the error message, "Read only memory card, remove write protection to capture or write to card." I don't know how to fix it or how to get it off my camera. I am only able to look at my photos in review, but not take any or delete the ones i have stored. It wont let me do anything, none of the buttons work, it just stays on that screen unless i press the review button, then I can just look at my pictures. I thought it was just a problem with my SD memory card, but i took the card out and put it in my mom's camera and it worked fine, her card also worked fine in mine and i was able to take photos and delete them. So I'm assuming it is something with the card in my camera. I tried looking through the manual but can't find anything about it...

Thanks!

    Thanks for the response. I checked the memory card and it was unlocked, so i will probably end up transfering the pictures to a cd and then re-format the card. Thanks Again!

My first inclination was that maybe the lock on the side of the SD card was on but after you mentioned that it worked in your mom's camera, I don't think that's the case. You may want to check that though. There's a little switch on the side and just make sure that it's switched to the "unlock" side.

The only other thing would be to format the memory card. When you do that, you will lose all the pictures on it. So, if it happens to work in ***********'s camera, I would transfer the pictures you already have saved on there and copy them to a cd before formatting the memory card.

In order to format your memory card, press the menu button, then go into the setup menu. There should be a list of settings. Scroll down to the format option and choose to format the memory card.

I hope this helps :)

To understand the photo loss situation, consider a scenario: You format a memory card in Digital Camera, and start to capture some pictures. However, while capturing pictures, your camera shuts down due to low battery. Now, after recharging battery, when you try to access those photograph on the card, you receive the following error message on camera screen:

The Card requires formatting: Additionally, the camera is unable to capture any new photographs.

The main cause for the above error message is corruption of memory card due to conking of battery while a read/write operation was running.

These memory card needs to be formatted before you save any new pictures. It is always a good practice to take backup of card and format it before use. This enables you to fight with any damage done to the memory card and to erase the old data saved on the card. However, the probability of card getting corrupted again (after you have saved new data) still exists.

First try formating with an external SD Card reader connected at PC and test it.

Formatting memory card


Normally that means your card is locked.
Look at the side of the card, there is a tiny switch - this is the write protection switch.
You may be catching it accidently with a finger nail.
