How do i get rid of my write protection on on the sd card


Wecome to Fixya. Memory card has a slide switch on the side or along the edges, you just have to slide it to get rid of the write protection on your memory card. Just remember that if the position nearest on the contacts is already removed the write protection on the SD card.

Thank you for using Fixya,

Every time I turn on my camera a message appears on the screen that says "write protect". What is "write protect" and how do I get rid of the message?

1) It could be your camera has write protect switched on. Go through your camera's menu and look for picture protect and remove it.

2) Your SD card could be write protected. Take out the SD card and check, there's probably a sliding notch on the left hand side, move the to write enable.

Write protect message appears on screen

Sounds as if the memory card may be corrupted. In order to remove the write protect, make sure you have downloaded and saved all of the images from the memory card to your computer and then having the card in the camera you will need to run the format option and this will permanently remove the write protect as well as all of the images from the card.
The card should be able to be used again after the write protect is removed.

The tape is write protected, remove the tape and make sure the green strip is set to REC as opposed to SAVE.
