Hi, The PDF of your manual is HERE. Page 28 refers how to remove protection on stored photo's.

Page 30 lists how to connect to your PC with USB cable.
You should use the software disc with the camera (or available from Olympus) to navigate to delete this option.

It should be on a menu as an option.

If you still have problems, Send olympus customer support an Email with your problem. - Their link is here -

    If it is an SD card - there may be an actual switch on the card.



    Remove the card and flip it.



    Hope this works for you.

How can I reset the protect disc


Hi,

The PROTECT function is used to prevent any valuable images that you have recorded from being erased accidently. These images will appear on the images with the protect indicator (key symbol).
To release the PROTECT from the images, set the PLAY/STILL/MOVIE selector to PLAY, then display the images to be released.
Select FILE , PROTECT and then set it to OFF. You can do the same in Index mode to delete multiple selected images. To release protect from all the images, select index screen and select ALL, the select to OFF.
You can view the instructions on page # 74 of the manual.
Thanks for contacting FixYa.

On my DMC-TZ8 the screen says "this memory card is write -protected " how do I solve this problem , only had camera two months I have took memory card out all seems alright THANKYOU


Your memory card is either write protected or corrupted.
  • If it's write protected, it can be very easily fixed.
  1. Turn off cam.
  2. Take out the mem. card. (it's probably located near the battery. press down on it and release it. Then it will pop out.)
  3. Slide the small switch on the side of the card to the position marked with an unlocked padlock.
  4. Put card back in and turn on cam.
  • If that doesn't seem to be the problem, then it's likely that the memory card is corrupted. This is common with Flash memory that has been used extensively for a long time and this problem is likely not caused by any fault in the camera. You might not be able to access any pictures that were stored on your cam, but you can try using a data recovery software like Recuva if you want to recover pictures ( click name to download ). If you want to use the card again, You can try formatting it (differs from cam to cam, check instructions manual for specific instructions) If this doesn't work, You will have to buy a new card. Make sure you buy a good brand like Lexar or SanDisk.

That's it. hope that helped.

I can't delete photos off my ScanDisc stick unless I manually do them individually, nor can I upload photos from my computer ONTO my camera. I get a "write-protected" message. How do I undo the write...


First of all, you're not supposed to upload from the computer to the camera. You risk corrupting the card and camera. If you want to delete all the pics from the memory card, just insert the card into the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions.

Write protect


When you disconnected the camera, did you use the "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom of your computer screen?

Write protect error olympus c 150 (cant get rid of read only)


Hi!

You might wanna check on your memory card. It could be that it is currently on write-protected mode. What you want to do is to check it now and then look for something like a push button. If its on the top position, push it downwards. Vice versa.

Olympus 850sw- write protect and picture error


Sounds as if the memory card has corrupted data on it now. You will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Menu button - right arrow to Setup Menu - right arrow to Format- Press Ok. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect and picture error messages and the card can be used again.

What do I do? It says... memory card is protected. I can't take photos or delete. :/


Some SD cards have a tiny "write protect" switch on the side. Might you have knowcked that? I would try taking the card out & seeing if you have one.

Otherwise, you can always look for the manual on the manufacturer's web site:

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


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.
