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.

If the memory Card has been switched to write protect mode, then all you have to do is remove memory card and find the lever on side and slide it. Then put it back on your camera and see if it works.

When i turn on the camera it says xD Write Protect.


It can be that if you have a SD card in it you might have somehow clicked the protect small lever. if so take out the SD card and check the sides of it and see if you find a small square like lever then try sliding it up or down however it will go. My SD card has it and when I sometimes put my camera away I slide it to write protect mode so that if my kids somehow get a hold of my camera and play with it they wont erase my pictures. Then when I need to use it I slide it back to unprotected mode. Hope that is your problem.

Write protect


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

"Write Protect"?!


It's 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.
