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.)

Set read/write tab on sd card to accept info?


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.

Canon fs300 says card has been set for erasure prevention; won't let me record


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.

The card is set for erasure prevention how do i change that


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.

i hope this is helpful to you.
Thanks

Anybody please help me!!! when I take picture my cam keep saying ''CARD LOCKED''.. how to fix this problem??? Please...


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.

Hope this helps.

WHY RIGHT PROTECT SHOW IN THE SCREEN


This is usually caused by the SD card, and is nothing to do with the camera. On the SD card there is a small slider - which allows you to lock the card (to prevent accidental erasure).

If you put in on the table with contacts upwards, corner cut top left, then the slider is on the right hand edge, about 1/3 the way down. If it is slid to the top position (nearest the contacts) the card is unlocked. If it is slid down (away from the contacts) the card is locked. (Sometimes it looks unlocked, but its so tiny, its actually in-beteen the settings. To make sure, slide it to locked, then back to unlocked again).

If it is a damaged / "cheap" card, sometimes the slider falls out, in which case the card is locked. You can still read from it, but not write to it until fixed or replaced.

Have you tried the camera with another SD card, to see if the problem persists?

hi there
if you look at the card there is a tiny little slider on one side and it locks the card to prevent erasure. slide it in the opposite direction and that should fix it.

Erasure prevention


Sounds like a CCD sensor problem ( no image in capture mode but ok in playback ). Replace CCD block and will work fine.
