Remove the memory card and you will find a switch on the left side of the card. It must be locked, so slide or push the lock on other side to open it and then insert the card back to the Camera.

Memory card error appears.cant take any more pictures. what do i do now...

Your camera can handle MMC and SD cards. Modern SD cards are most likely SDHC cards and can't work in your camera. `please look for maximal 1 or 2 Giga Byte cards and the should not have SDHC or SDXC printed on them.

If your card is full, and it won't take more pictures, try putting most or all photos on a computer. Then delete the pictures you transferred. Make sure you also backup you pictures on an other medium.
Also check the lock switch on the memory card is NOT in the lock position.

Samsung PL100 - strange problem

Put the card back into the camera and format it.

In the future, always format the camera after you finish download your pictures, instead of deleting them.

How do I delete pictures when the camera will not display them

Hi can you take the memory card out and look at them on a pc or laptop ? if so you could delete them there.
You could delete everything on the card by formating the memory card.
Sounds like there is some sort of problem with the card or camera if you cant see the pictures. Can you see any pictures on the camera? Do you have another memory card you could use to do a few test shots on and then see if you can delete them.

I cant use my cam the screen appear only the "WRITE PROTECT" word with a pic of like key.but still i see my old picture.i cant take new picture.

Take the memory card out of your camera and look at it. 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.

Take the memory card out of the camera and look at it. 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.

Two things to try: 1. Go into the camera menu and find "reset" to get the camera back to factory default settings. 2. With the new card installed, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions. If the new card now works, you will probably need to do the same with the old card but download the pictures first using a card reader if necessary because formatting will completely erase it.
