The same thing happened to me and i don't know what to do either but as i was currently researching it i found a solution that when you were editing it or putting it on the computer an issue accured that you pressed something that makes you not able to delete, record, or take pictures....

"memory full" but SD cards are empty

Not sure if it will be this, but has the SD card got locked by accident? There is a little sliding button on the side of the card, which can be locked to protect the content. My camera shows the card as full if I accidentally lock the card. You can just slide it back again to unlock it. I never noticed the button was there until I accidentally knocked it while loading the card in and out of my PC to transfer the photos.

Need help working my camcorder/camera

In order to record, the camera needs to have a memory card installed. This particular camera needs an SD format card. If the camera does not have a card installed, the card is not properly formatted, or the card is full, you will not be able to record. Also, these cards have a write protect lock tab. Make sure that the tab is not in the lock position. The card should be formatted FAT32. If you can read the card on your computer, make sure it is not full and that the card is formatted FAT32. If you have another camcorder or camera that uses SD cards, you might want to try formatting the card, just to be sure.

Screen says 'card locked' but the card is not locked

Step 1 - Check to see if SD memory card or SDHC memory card's write protect tab is set to "Lock" -
Unlock the write protect tab.

Step 2 - Try another SD memory card or SDHC memory card to see if the problem also occurs. If not, the memory card is faulty, if the problems doesn't go away, the camera is broken.

Everytime I put the SD Memory card and I try to take a picture or video it says card protect and won't let me do anything. What should I do?

Take the memory card out of your camera and look at it. 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.

Everytime I put the SD Memory card and I try to take a picture or video it says card protect and won't let me do anything. What should I do?

i had this same problem... take your SD memory card to a computer, and format it then it should work.

Once loaded into a computer: 1) locate drive under My computer that should say SD or removable disk 2) right-click and then click the format tab 3) one the window is open format the SD card . . . it will erase everything on the card but it should solve your issue.

Just put a new memory card in the camera but the screen keeps showing internal memory is full

How to switch the camera over to saving pictures directly onto the SD card.
    1. Menu
    2. Cam settings
    3. Chose AUTO or SD card option and Press OK
Note: If the SD card isn't in the camera or is unreadable the camera will automatically go back to saving you taken pictures on the internal memory.

If you still experience problems:
The lever on your SD card might be turned the wrong way so the SD card is reading protective.
Please turn the lever and try again.

The SD card might not be supported by the model: Your camera Memory card support is SD/MMC up to 1 Gigabyte

The SD card might not be faulty, try another card, since the camera could give you a message like the one you're experiencing.
Try with a different SD card that is supported by the camera.
    After you having successfully switched over to saving onto the SD card. I would guess that you would like to transferre the pictures from your internal memory over to the SD card.:

    My olympus camedia d-540ZOOM writes " write protect" on its screen... so, I can't take pictures, can't edit them.I can't even move the pictures to a pc inserting the memory card directly...

    Take your memory card out and move the tiny plastic switch on it to "unlock" or whatever it says. If that doesn't help, try another card. If that still doesn't help, come back and we'll try something else!

    Camera screen said SD card is locked when I installed an SD card

    The SD card has a lever on the side of it. Move it to the other position.That is to prevent accidental erasing.
