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. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Why is my camera stating write protect?


Look at your memory card. SD and 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.

Got a new memory card for my camera and im getting an "Out of Memory" warning


Most digital cameras will work with only with specific memory cards. You can't just buy any old card and expect it will work in your camera. Approved cards for Nikon E5700 are listed on page 159 of the English version manual. (In the Technical notes.) Also, if you insert or remove the memory card with the power on it could render the card unusable and, of course, you must insert the card in the correct orientation.
I assume you have not taken a heap of images in high resolution and simply filled your new card.

Camper says internal memory is full and i have only taken 12 pics. i think there might be "protected" pics. but i don't even know how to protect pics or to un protect them.


Digital cameras that come with internal memory usually have a very small amount of storage capacity (usually 32 or 64MB). I'm not sure why the manufacturers even bother with internal storage when you can get memory cards that have much more capacity. You need to either download the photos you've taken to your PC and then delete the photos so you can take more shots, or you need to insert a memory card. Depending on your model of camera you need a microSD or SD card. Let me know the model number of the camera and I will tell you what you need to get.

Hope this helps!

I just had pictures developed from my camera. When I inserted my memory card it now says "Write protect." Do I have to buy a new memory card?


Hi,

To remove the write protect lock, take the memory card out of the camera, face the card towards you, look for a small tab on the left hand side of the card, to unlock it push the tab up to unlock it, it will be at the side of the card like this 59a6de4.jpg .

I inserted kinston 4gb card in my digital camera , while in the unlocked position of switch.But camera shows "memory card error" "card locked"


  • There is a write-protection tab on the mini sd card HOLDER. Every time you insert this into your PC or card holder, this tab slides to the write protect position. Either keep resetting, inserting & reinserting until it doesn't slide or tape it down.
  • There is nothing wrong with the mini sd card. Simply locate the write protection key and push it.
  • The mini sd card has some error: Go for a low level formatting.
  • The card has virus: Remove the virus. The link for the steps is present in the related link at the bottom of the article.

    This camera will only handle a 16GB capacity flash card the camera Firmware will not allow for larger cards. I ran into a similar problem (different camera) but solved the dilemma with updating the camera firmware. I can only suggest you check out your camera model on the Sony web site for updates if you purchase Memory Cards larger then 16GB. If you have cards under 16GB check make sure your camera is set for memory card and not reading from the Internal memory. Another crazy thing is make sure your clock is working (day date & time) and set correctly.
