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, allowing the camera (or any other device) to write to the card.

Write protection is a physical device that prevents you from writing or changing information on a disc. For digital cameras this is usually a "lock" slider on SD cards.

Try sliding it to the other side if your getting an error that it is write protected when you're trying to use the card. If that doesn't work please post your model number for your camera.

Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

    My 6 month old camera does this too. It's a Olympus SP-600UZ. The SD card is not in "lock" position. My "Interal / SD" in my camera is set to "Auto". This happened a week ago and I got a new SD card and was able to use it twice and now it's doing it again.

Look at your memory card. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

I just wat to delete certain pictures from my flash drive and it's not working. What should I do? the flash drive is called ATTACHE.


Hi there

You flash disk is write protected and you cannot delete or add new file from the flash disc. Just click right mouse and choose the program each text. One of those is the tools to unwrite protect the flash disk or if there is pop up software in your computer that use to write protect the flash disc.

I hope it helps you

My amp wont go past protect mode


Disconnect all speaker wires and signal cables from the amp. If it powers up (no protect light), the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down (goes into protect), the amp likely has blown output transistors.
