You didn't specify the make and model of the camera, but I'll assume it uses SD cards.

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.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

How do I delete all photos on my chip


Based on what you have said, it appears that the write-protect has been activated on the card. With the card's label facing you and the corner cut-off to the right, you'll see a little slot just a bit above the halfway point on the card. In that slot is a tab. If the tab is down toward the bottom of the card, it's in the write-protect or locked position. You cannot delete anything while the card is in the write-protect mode. Simply slide the tab to the top of the slot to unlock it and your delete function should work.

If it does not, you've got another problem which you may be able to fix by formatting the card. Once again, you cannot format a card in the write-protected mode.

If you can't format it...which will delete any pictures on the card... then the card is probably bad and should be replaced. Cards are cheap and really not worth spending a lot of time trying to solve the problem.

If you can't format a new card, then you've got a camera problem and it's time to call or contact Nikon support.

I want to delete protected pictures


If the picture on the camera is protected, unprotect the picture first. In playback mode, scroll to the protected picture, then press the AE-L/AF-L button on the back of the camera.

If the memory card is protected, take the card out of the camera. SD 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.

How to unlock a photo in camara


The protect function allows a user to protect a picture from accidental deletion. To unprotect a picture on your camera, scroll to the protected picture that you want to delete, then press the Menu button (the button to the right of the Play button.) Scroll down the menu and you should come to an option that allows you to Protect/Unprotect the picture. Since your picture is currently protected, deselect that option. You should then be able to delete the picture normally.

Alternatively, you could also format the memory card, however this deletes ALL photos and data you have on the memory card. If you are trying to completely clear the memory, this is the best way. After turning on your camera, simply press the Menu button, scroll to Setup, then scroll down to Format. Select Format, it will ask you if you want to format the memory card, or the camera's built-in memory. Format whichever one you want to clear, if you are using a memory card then your pictures are stored on the memory card. It will take a few seconds to format.

Hope this helps.

Canon PowerShot SX20 IS Digital Camera keeps giving me a memory card error. The memory card is a 4gig PNY memory card (lower budget)


Make sure the slide switch on the side of the card is unlocked. Your camera may just want you to format the card in the camera. Download any pics from it first using a card reader if necessary.

Need to delete protected pictures


Try to remove first the memory card of your camera. After you remove the card you can see a small button at the side of the memory card. Just slide the small button to unprotected. Insert your memory card back to your camera and try to delete pictures.

Can't delete a photo off my memory card.


you should have turned on the protection status on while taking pictures by default. to switch of this status all you have to do is in the preview mode of the camera select that particular picture. now press the menu button. you can see a variety of options there. in those there is an option protection status of "protect this photo". you can turn it off there.
