Follow the instructions in the "Protecting images" section of the manual (page 170 in my copy). If you need a manual, you may download it and more from here.

How do I unprotect pics on a 0lympus c-765


As it was the camera that put the protection on ..You need to put the card into the camera..And ..UN-TICK each one to unprotect them...The idea of the protected photos is so you cant erase them when you format the card.

Sometimes SD cards have locks on the back of them. I cant say this will fix your problem, but if the memory card is locked it will not allow you to delete the photos. If the photos are on your camera's memory, try playing with the options and see if they are protected for any miscellaneous reason.

How do i delete pictures that are protected


you need to go into your menu/camera settings and find the bit that gives you the options for protecting or locking the images.

If you cant find it in your menu or setup options then go to display mode. Go to the photo that is protected then hit your menu buttons to unprotect it.

Won't delete pics


Try formatting the card via the camera, that should get rid of them. Once formatted, take a photo and try deleting.

It may be worth trying another card to establish whether is a card or a camera problem.

There's a third option. Many cameras have a feature which protects pictures from deletion, if they're protected they cant be deleted.

Memory card is write protected


Take your memory card out of the camera and switch the position of the little "lock" tab. That should fix it and you can start saving images.
