Hoping that you can help...
I purchased the above camera a few months ago.
The other day, i tried to delete a few pictures and it would not process my request. The camera says "This picture cannot be deleted". The camera has a facility where you can protect certain pics from being deleted. I have not protected any pics. I have tried to "unprotect" the pics but this does not help. I am currently using a Silicon power multimedia card tm 512mb and a serial number of sorts 512m0534sp.
When I try to multi delete on the camera, it says to me
"can't be set on this picture".
I have been through the entire user manual and cannot find any solution to this problem. I have also been on the panasonic website and have contacted Panasonic South Africa and they are not familiar with the problem. They suggest i use an SD memory card or a panasonic memory card.
I have been to a local photo lab this morning and they helped me overide this on their computer, Upon arriving home, the same problem occurred.
Can you help?

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.

It's easier to download pictures using card readers. Just insert the SD card in the reader and plug it in you computer. Double click the folder DMIC and you can drag and drop the pictures. You can buy card readers in any computer store for $5-$10.
