    I KNOW THAT UNLOCKING THE CARD DOES THE TRICK, BUT 90% OF THE TIME, THE CARD LOCK SWITCH RETURNS TO THE LOCK POSITION WHEN I INSTALL THE CARD INTO THE CAMERA; NO MATTER HOW CAREFUL I AM IN TRYING TO PLACE IT IN THE SLOT. IS THERE A SIMPLE WAY OF KEEPING THE CARD IN THE "UNLOCKED" POSITION?????

P. 140 of the users manual listed the protected card problem. Solution is to switch your SD card from lock position to unlocked. That solved the problem for me.

If it's an SD card, there is a little tab on the left side. Pushed down it puts the card in "write protect" mode that prevents the camera (or the computer) from writing to the card and/or erasing files that are already on it. Make sure the tab is pushed up and the camera should be able to write to the card.

Guys - this is for all those who have been suffering from protected card problem and tired of being advised by so called experts on this site to toggle the swtich to unlock position.

This is what i did to solve my problem that i faced for the first time yesterday which infact prompted me to become a member of FIXYA to find the solution. i am not an expert nor do i know much about photography or cameras so suite yourself and follow my advise at your own risk ( relax its easy ) .

I put a very little super glu ( any quick fix glu from small tube) to keep the lever of the SD card to the unlocked position. MY CAMERA IS BACK TO NORMAL AND I CAN NOW TAKE PICTURES.
Warning -
1. Dry completely before inserting ( takes 1 minutes )
2. Be prepared mentally never to take the card out to insert in laptop. use the cable instead.
3. decide never to use the locked position. always save in Hard disk of laptop instead of saving in the SD card.This way you dont need the locked position.....ever.

Let me know if this works. i have a fFjifilm finepix 1000 d and i was in no mood to replace this super cool DSLR camera.

Check the card. There is a little button on the side...unlock it...put it back in the camera...turn the camera on. It should work!

Memory card is write protected


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.


You should be able to read the card whether its protected or not. In fact I always protect the card before putting it into my computer so as to prevent the computer from doing anything to the card.

When I want to take photo a message says: memory card is write protected.How can I solve this problem


Take the memory card out of your camera. 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.

When this problem occur you need to set the memory card unlock or not protected. Remove the memory card from camera and you can see a small button in the memory card, so you need to slide that to set the memory card unlock or not protected.

What does 'Write Protect' mean and how do I get rid of it?


That means that your SD card (or whichever memory card you use) is write protected and you cannot edit the card's content in any way.

Take your memory card out of the camera and plug it into your computer. There should be a place for you to change the memory card's protections that way. Sometimes, as with USB drives, there might be a small sliding lock physically located on the card which will also write protect the device.

"card protected"

If that doesn't work, try another card.

Card protected


When the card is protected you need to remove it first. You can slide the small button at right side of the card so that it will be being protected. After you've slide the small button you can use your camera.

Nikon Coolpix 5200 Getting Message ""Memory Card is Write Protected"


Inspect your SD card carefully. Some SD cards come with a write-protect lock switch on the side of the card. When looking at an SD card from the top there is one required notch on the right side (the side with the diagonal notched corner) and on the left side there is usually a switch. This is the write-protect switch. When this write-protect switch is in the down position (away from the end that is inserted) then it is write protected and read-only. When the switch is in the up position it is write enabled.
