    The Polaroid i835 camera will not take a picture with the SD card inserted. The SD tab is in unlocked position, I've gone through the formatting step, and chose SD as the storage media, and I still get "card protected" on the LCD.

What are you trying to do with the card?
remove the card from the camera,by opening the compartment its in,press and it should pop up/out, then:
if you are trying to wipe the pictures off,then there is a little bit on the side of the card that protects it from being wiped! slide this in the opposite direction,and voila! problem solved

It says my memory card is right protected and wont let me take a picture


I am going to assume that the camera is using an SD memory card. Remove the memory card. On the side of the memory card there is a small gray (usually) in color that moves up and down, one postion ^ is for lock (write protected) the other is unlocked. Move the small slide, re-insert card and try again.

Removal of write protection


Sounds like you will need to format the internal memory of the camera. This will permanently erase all the data from the memory and then you will be able to use it again. To format the memory: Press the Ok button - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to card setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect message and the memory can be used again.

I have a stylus 410 when turned on it displays 'write protect'


The memory card is corrupted and the only way to remove the write protect is to format the memory card when it is in the camera. To format the memory card:
Press the green arrow button to go to review mode then press the Ok button
Press the right arrow button to go to Mode Menu
Press the down arrow button to go to the Card tab
Press the right arrow button to go to Card Setup
Press the right arrow button to go to Format option
Here you will see Format Yes or No
Press up arrow to go to Yes and press Ok

The camera will indicate Busy because it is clearing the write protect and erasing all images permanently from the card.
Once completed the card will be able to be used again.

Stylus 600. When I turn camera on a blue screen comes up with a message [xD] Write Protect. What does this mean and how do I make it go away?


In order to remove the message of write protect you will need to format the xD memory card. The card has somehow become corrupted. To format the memory card - press Ok - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to Card Setup - right arrow to Format - Up arrow to Yes and then press Ok. This will permanently delete all images from the memory card and you will be able to start taking images again.

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.
