Digital camera says my SD card is pin protected

Hi there

Can you help please.

I downloaded some photos from my Lumix digital camera. Put the SD card back into the camera and it came up with an error message on the camera: SD Card Pin Protected.

Do you know how I can unprotect it please?

Many thanks

John

Hello

Have you looked at the card closely, there is a small switch at the side lock / unlock, try unlocking the card and the camera should be able to use it again.

How to put photos onto SD cards


In Windows, click on Start/Computer. A window opens showing all the drives connected to the computer. Under "removable drives" locate the SD card. Hover your mouse pointer over the SD card icon and it should tell you how much free space is on the card. If necessary, delete some photos or other data to make more space available so you can add the photos you want. If there's already plenty of space, try formatting the SD card in either ex-FAT or NTFS format. Then try copying the photos again. If the SD card does NOT in appear in removeable drives then the SD card may be faulty. Try a different SD card.

"Memory card is write protected". How do I get this off my camera screen


SD 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.

Why wont my computer recognize my sandisk memory card anymore


Sometimes it happens that your slot doesn't work you can use a another option like Olympus LS-10 digital recorder as a card reader for accessing the data. Insert the SD card in your LS-10 digital recorder then connect the recorder to the computer with a USB cord then it will show you two options for the onboard storage inherent and one for the SD-Card. Select first photoshop elements to read the card and then Windows Live photo Gallery to view and copy your photos.

I have bought the philips 10.4 inch digital photo frame and im trying to put pictures on it and store them in the internal memory. When i put my card in it starts to install them but then says not enough...


Tough the picture frame states 1000 photos, it really depends on the size of the picture. To resolve this purchase a 2 or 4 gb memory card and download your pictures onto the card. You can insert the card in the slot of the picture frame and then connect to your computer and download your pics from your computer directly onto the memory card.
