No pictures on camera - yet getting "memory full" message

If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.After copying your photos to the computer, then you can delete the photos from the memory card using your computer.

Using picasa3 how do i create new folders

Have you clicked on the photo(s) you want to move and then drag them across to the new folder and 'drop' them into it? If you highlight several photos at same time by depressing CTRL and then using your cursor arrows to highlight the additional photos you should be able to move batches of images at the same time.

I don't kn how to remove the write protect on my olympus 1070

Have you tried moving the little switch on your memory card? That would be the main reason for your camera giving you a write protect message. also, try doing a settings reset on your camera in case something in there is giving you that message. If neither of those work then you'll most likely have to get your camera service by an Olympus Authorized Service Center. Hope this helps!

What ???
You have a very strange system. By default, the only assigned attribute to the Users folder is R and the individual user folders have no default assigned attributes.
attrib -s -h changes the attributes to not be a system folder and not hidden, but this is immediately followed by attrib +s which makes the folder a system folder. But neither Users or the user's folder is suppose to be a system folder.

Changing defaults

1) When you type the text using the keypad(screen), press 'Abc' and select 'T9 Abc'. That will solve your first problem.
2) You cannot do that by default. Everytime you need to move the messages using the option 'Move to Phone'.
3) Unfortunately they have not given the direct option. First you need to move the message to phone using the option 'Move to Phone' and again do 'Move to folders' on the same message and choose the folder.
