How to unlock the memory card of my digimax S500/S600

Does anyone know how to unlock a memory card on the Optio W20? I follow the instructions (press 4-way controller down in play mode, select protect, hit ok) but then I don't get the same screen as what the instructions say will appear. I'm supposed to see a screen than gives me the option of protecting one image or all images, then there should be one that says protect or unprotect.

Whenever I try to do this, I can only select protect, but my camera then says the card is locked - it won't let me do anything else!?!

How can I access the unprotect all images screen?

Thanks.

Your card is protected.

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.

Hi, If you take the memory card out of your camera there should be a little toggle on the side of it. If you slide it to the opposite position of where it is that should unlock the card. If you need more help let me know =)

Take the memory card out of the camera. Look at it carefully and you will seea small tab. Move the tab from the locked position to the unlocked position. Re-install the memory card into the camera and then you're done.
