Just solved by looking at the memory card itself......there's a switch on the actually memory card......click it & then put it back in the camera!!!!

SOURCE: "card protected"

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.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

depending on the type of card you should see a little slide or something that you can move and in one direction it will say lock or something of that sort and if you slide it away from that position that should fix your problem. good luck!

My picture card is saying no picture when i go to take a picture the card says full it wont let me take a picture??


Hi.

Check AE lock custom button:

Ensure that the memory card has no protective seal or object in front of the protection area. See here.

Ensure that the files are not individually protected (Key sign in settings)

If that does not fix the problem, then the card may be defective. In that case replace the card.

Here a manual.

Canon PowerShot SX20 IS Digital Camera keeps giving me a memory card error. The memory card is a 4gig PNY memory card (lower budget)


Make sure the slide switch on the side of the card is unlocked. Your camera may just want you to format the card in the camera. Download any pics from it first using a card reader if necessary.

Cant take photos as it says the card is write protected


Take your memory card out of the camera and switch the position of the little "lock" tab. That should fix it and you can start saving images.
