If you are using an SD card, then there is a little movable piece and the left hand side of the card that can be moved back and forth. there should be a little arrow pointing to which position is the "locked" position. If you push the piece on the side in the opposite direction it should unlock the card.

I think that your batteries may have expired due to old age and are refusing to hold a charge. Ni cad batteries have a shelf life and once that time limit has expired, you need to replace the batteries with new ones which will begin counting down to their expire date and also go dead.once ni cad batteries have expired and past their time limitnothing can be done to revive them ,they are forevermore dead and must be replaced.that is the reason why i buy 120 volt ac drills instead of battery powered drills which are always dead by the time i need to use them and wont hold a charge when i try to recharge them.my cordless radio phone batteries go dead after 1 hour on the phone, when they were newer,i could talk for 4 hours and still have 1/4 charge left. soon they will only last 30 minutes and need a 12 hour recharge to come back to 4 bars.so i expect to have to pay 4 new batteries by christmas. One other option may be that your charger is not working properly and developing the required voltage.that also happens but not as often as dead batteries that wont hold a charge.if you have a radio shack nearby, even if its a 20 mile drivethey can test your batteries and also test your battery charger. just ask for a salesman that has a battery tester and a vom [volt,ohm,milli amp meter] also called a multi meter. The vom will test your charger and came also test your batteries, but most salesmen dont know enough about the vom to use it as a battery tester .PS a battery tester is just a vom scaled down for battery testing only, made easy to use for dummies.

Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct your problem. Recommend starting with Fix 1 (new battery). If the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth a try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them:http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.htmlAnd the intro is a video summary of the steps.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.
