You didn't specify what type of card, so I'll assume it's either an SD or an SDHC card.

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.

Cannot download pics from GE X5 camera


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

First, get a card reader (they're very cheap) and use it to download the pics from the card. Then, re-insert the card into the camera and go into the menu and find "format"....follow the on-screen instructions to completely erase the card and optimize it for your new camera.

My daughter tryed to download and now the camera will not take pic and it says "card protected"how do we fix it????


Take the card out of the camera. There is a tiny plastic switch at the edge of the card. Your daughter must have accidentally put it in the "lock" position to prevent taking photos. Unlock the card and use normally.

Every time I try n take a pic my samsung sl30 camera says "card locked!" How can I unlock the card?


Slide the lock switch on the SD card away from the lock position. It is a small plastic switch, usually yellow or white, on the side of the card.

I downloaded pic from my fuji camera on my pc and now my camera says "protected card" what can i do


Take a look at your memory card. 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.

When turned on..It says Card locked! can't take pics and can't erase pics...No where in menu does it say anything about card locked. There is also a "hand symbol" Never seen this before.


It's not the camera, but the memory card. 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.
