My pictures get lost without me removing them! How can I stop this from happening?


Your card is corrupting. You need to format the card in the camera using the camera's format feature (look for it in the menus). Note that this will also erase the card, so do such only after saving all pictures to your computer. If you'd like to attempt to recover your "lost" pictures, there is freeware available that might help you. See this link.

While taking pictures from card loaded on computer, we lost all photos. when new photos made with camera,not showing images


Are you sure the camera is not just saving pictures to its built-in memory? With no card in the camera, try to view the pictures on the camera screen. If they show up, then that's what is happening.

You may try some recovery software to rescue the files on your sd card, here are some for your options.

Photo Video Recovery (for Windows)
Photo Video Recovery for Mac

Be careful: Before your files are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

Need to delete protected pictures


Try to remove first the memory card of your camera. After you remove the card you can see a small button at the side of the memory card. Just slide the small button to unprotected. Insert your memory card back to your camera and try to delete pictures.

The card, or memory chip in camera is locked, and i dont know how to unlock it, so now i cant take pictures, or upload my pictures, or even delete photos,i just need to know how to unlock my camera.


Hi,
This used to happen when the write protect lock on in the memory card. Refer the manual to see how to remove the memory card.
After removing the memory card, unlock the write protect tab as shown in the fig. d7656e6.jpg

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.

Saving pictures


The camera has a very limited storage space on itself. It probably isnt saving the pictures on the card because the card is write protected (probably on accident)
just pull out the card and on it is a tiny little switch. just push that into the next position and it is no longer write protected. the write protection is there to prevent you from losing your photos, to put more photos on it you will have to deactive the protection with that switch, its usually white colored

Cant take photos as it says the 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.
