Are the images locked? on internal memory? or is it on a sd card?

(SD and MS cards feature a write lock. Unlock the card.)

also

This maybe useful to anyone whose "lock" toggle has fallen off. The plastic toggle is there to activate a switch in the device (like in digital camera) not on the card. To get the device to see the card as unlocked, just glue a small piece of plastic to fill the slot in the side of the SD card casing. You will loose the SD card lock feature but at least you will be able to write data to the card again Also, if you don't feel like glueing just stick a piece of tape on the side that will work too

How to delete protected images


If you want to delete everything on the card, the easiest way is to format the card. This will wipe out all images (and any other data as well) on the card, whether protected or not. The Format command is in the Setup menu. Details on page 32 of the manual.
To delete individual protected pictures, unprotect them first. From the Playback menu select Protect/Unprotect (the key icon). Details on page 84.

Hi, i plugged in my SD card on the tv and it played perfectly. Now i wanted to download the photos on my computer but it says its corrupted. BTW i have Panasonic SD HC 16 GB


There must be some eject/remove procedure on the tv that you didn't use....you probably just pulled out the card. The problem is by not using the procedure, the tv was still accessing the data on the card. Pulling it out corrupted it. You may be able to get the pics off of it by using a picture kiosk machine at your nearest Walmart store. If successful, you can get your card working again by formatting it in the camera to completely erase it and optimize it for the camera's operating system.

Take the memory card out insert it into a card reader and connect to a system. After you have backed up all the data without opening the files on the mem. card right click on the card icon and select format . Choose full format option. This would erase all the files.

My card says it is write protected for no seeming reason and is not letting me erase my pics from it.


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked/protected", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. The second most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. There are also other common causes if the above didn't help, with troubleshooting steps for this problem listed here.

Protected card on my camera


Check your owners manual about protected photos. There is a setting in the camera's setup that keeps you from accidentally erasing photos.

My Camrea tells me that the card is protected


Before inserting your SD memory card, slide the write-switch to unlock position. Insert the SD card, go to ‘setup menu’, then ‘format’ , format the SD card. All pictures will be erased. Refer your manual on page 87.

Image protection and erasing are covered on pages 64 and 65 of the manual (you can view/download the manual here). If you are going to erase all images, you can just initialize the card (see page 65). It will erase all images, even protected ones.

Protected feature


There are 2 probable solutions. 1. The images are "protected" by the camera & will show "locked" when you try to erase them. 2. The SD card in the camera is locked. The solution to 1 is to unlock the images in the playback menu. See page 46 of the manual. Note that you need to select "unlock" you can't select protect as they are already protected! Solution 2 is to remove the card from the camera & check the "lock" slider that you can see on the side (although no all cards have this). Set the lock off. You can download the manual from the first link on the following page: http://www.vivitar.com/manuals/english/ViviCam6300/CameraManual.pdf Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
