What you have to do is to gently remove the memory card from your camera. Take a look at it because SD cards have a switch located on the left which you can use to lock/unlock your data. I hope it helps!

SD Card Problems with Vivitar Vivicam 5118!


What size is the memory card. If it's larger than 4GB then it won't work in the 5118.
Try using another card. Don't format it in your computer but do format it in the camera before trying to take pictures.

A message always shows "MEMORY CARD IS WRITE


If you take out the memory card and look at it... it has a little button on the side... slide it over.... and then slap it back in the camera and that should take care of the problem.

You can also get the memory card locked/protected message if you are trying to use a SDHC card in a camera that does not support High Capacity (HC). High Capacity is any SD card with over 2GB of memory space.

Hope this helps.

I inserted kinston 4gb card in my digital camera , while in the unlocked position of switch.But camera shows "memory card error" "card locked"


  • There is a write-protection tab on the mini sd card HOLDER. Every time you insert this into your PC or card holder, this tab slides to the write protect position. Either keep resetting, inserting & reinserting until it doesn't slide or tape it down.
  • There is nothing wrong with the mini sd card. Simply locate the write protection key and push it.
  • The mini sd card has some error: Go for a low level formatting.
  • The card has virus: Remove the virus. The link for the steps is present in the related link at the bottom of the article.

    Hi Team,, I have Nikon s4000 camera. I have an issue in cam, when i inserted a memory card, its showing "MEMORY CARD IS WRITE PROTECTED",, Please do needful.


    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. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

    I have a Canon Powershot SX10IS, and I put in a memory card, but the screen is showing that the "card is locked," It won't let me delete anything. What can I do?


    Why does my camera say "Card Locked" or "Write Protected"?

    The basics. In the same way that the recordings on audio cassettes and VHS tapes could be protected by breaking off the little tab on the back corner, the material on a memory card can be protected against being overwritten. Instead of a tab to break off, write protection is done by a tiny slider on the edge of the card (opposite the cut corner). Before the camera will take pictures, it's necessary that this slider on the card operates a microswitch in the camera, which it will only do if it's NOT in the 'lock' position. The slider actually does nothing inside the card, which is why I don't call it a 'switch' even though it seems like one. Its only purpose is to be detected by the microswitch in the camera's slot, and it's the camera that takes care of the write protection, not the card.

    Diagnosis.
    Obviously the first thing to do is to check that the slider is NOT in the lock position.

    andythechikn_2.jpg

    If the camera is giving you this error in the unlock position, it means that the slider has failed to operate the microswitch, or that the microswitch itself is faulty, or possibly that there's some file system error with the card. To diganose the problem, it would be really helpful if you could try two or more different memory cards in the camera and see if just one, or all of them exhibit the problem.

    If only one memory card exhibits the problem: In this case, it's clearly something to do with the memory card. Is the slider worn, bent or missing? A missing slider will write protect the card in the same way that sliding it to the 'lock' position will. There's another possibility. I've recently discovered that
    some cameras which use xD-Picture cards also give this error even though those cards don't even have lock sliders! Furthermore, some users have reported fixing this error by reformatting the card. Therefore, I feel it's also possible that your error may be fixed by reformatting. Before you do this, make sure that you've copied all you want off the card and then use the camera's 'format' function to reformat the card. I advise using the camera for the format function because this guarantees the correct file system. If you use your computer to format it, you may easily get the wrong one. However if you need to do it this way, see which file system is currently in use on the drive before you start. Go to "My Computer" and right click on the drive which is the memory card, and choose "Properties". Examples of filesystems are "FAT" (probably FAT16), "FAT32" and NTFS; to make sure your reformat is successful, ensure you use the same filesystem as before.

    If some memory cards work, and others don't, or the same cards sometimes work but only sometimes:
    The slider is really tiny, so it's possible that the number of people reporting this error is caused by lack of precision in manufacturing sizes. It must be hard to make a microswitch that can feel such a small thing. Does a better brand of card work? Can you bear to simply stick to the better brands, or the ones that work most reliably? As a remedy of last resort, you could try wrapping a small strip of sticky tape over the slider to increase its thickness, but I think this is a risky solution. There's a risk that the tape will come off in the slot and cause even more problems, or that the tape will be so thick that the card will jam in the slot and you'll have trouble getting it out.

    If all of your memory cards behave in the same way: In this case, it's clearly something to do with the camera. It could be that the microswitch is broken, or there's some software error. Although it's less likely, let's cover the software error first; please find the 'system reset' function in your settings menu and use it to clear everything. Any good? If not, try the sticky tape solution in the last paragraph in the hope that it's a size/fit problem with operating the microswitch, but if that fails we're out of options really, beyond a repair of that microswitch.

    How do I remove the "write Protect " from my Olympus camera? I must have pushed some buttons incorrectly and suddenly it shows that "write Protect " sign. I already tried removing...


    Find the flash memory card that plugs into your camera and stores the pictures. It's usually behind a door or flap on the side or bottom. Remove the card, usually accomplished by pushing it in and then it should spring outward slightly -- at least enough for you to pull it out the rest of the way. Check the card for a tiny sliding tab on the side and move it to the opposite end of its travel. See this wikipedia article for pictures and more info about write-protection.

    Memory Card


    They tricked you. The picture in the guide is of an SD card, but the card that came with the G9 is an MMC card. On both, there is a row of brass-colored contacts along one edge. This is what looks like ribbing in the guide. These contacts should go into the camera first. The memory cards will only seat if they are inserted correctly, so if it goes in far enough to close the cover, you have it in right.
