You can download a user manual here. Your problem, however, does not seem to be related to the camera, but to the SD card. Take the card out and look along the edge for a small 'switch'. This switch will have a 'locked' and an 'unlocked' position. Make sure it is 'unlocked'. If you still get the advisory, try another SD card. (Sometimes those little 'switches' fail.)

See the little tab on the left side of the card? Use your finger nail to move it up or towards the end with the shiny contacts to unlock the card. If you want to protect what you put on the card then push the tab down after you add files to it to prevent accidental erasure and adding new files to it.
Look at your memory card. 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. If that doesn't do it, try another card.
There is a tiny slide switch on the side of the memory card if you look on carefully. Slide it accordingly as indicated to unlock, this is provided to prevent accidental erasure of important data in the card.
Hi, It depends upon the type of card which you are using and the type of device in which you are using the card.
Remove the card from the device and check for any small switch/knob which causes the card in read-only mode. If nothing is present, then try connecting your card to a computer using a card reader and try to format the card.
Just like old 1.44 drives, sd cards have locks on them. Take the card out of the camera. Look at the side of it and locate the slide. This lock and unlocks the card. This is a feature to prevent accidental erasure of the card.
