    i am having the same problem with the sd card. I have tried 3 different ones (i'm using the reg one not the one with the adapter and when i try to reformat the card protect pops up as well!

    The camcorder insists that my 2gb SD card is write protected, even though I have the latch set to "unlock" mode. I am able to copy, play and erase files on the SD card via my computer. The camcorder refuses to format the card, still says it is write protected!

    To be sure I wasn't in error, I locked the card and tried to copy a file to it, via my computer. Wouldn't work, because the card was write protected. Then I unlocked the card again, and was able to copy to it. Placed the unlocked card back into the camcorder...still refuses to let me record, claiming it is still locked!

    I can, however use my 8gb card, after first formatting it via my camcorder. Does chop the memory in half...but looks like the camcorder handles up to 4gb, while it claims to do only 2!

    So, expect others to have the same problem...there does seem to be a glitch in the camera, where for some reason it will not recognize a memory card being writeable. Have no idea why, but for some the answer may simply be to try another SD card, up to 4GB capacity. Which BTW, will give you twice as much recording time as Aiptek's camcorder claims to have.

IT IS AN AIPTEK PROBLEM. PUT A SMALL SECTION OF OPAQUE TAPE (NOT SEE THROUGH TAPE) OVER LOCKING SLIDE ON CARD. THIS WILL WORK BUT DO NOT COVER THE ELECTRONIC CONTACTS.

First check the memory card to see if the lock tab is in the UNLOCK position. On the top left of the memory card is a slide the moves up and down. The slide should be in the up position for it to be unlocked. A locked memory card could cause the camera to read a CARD PROTECT error message.
If you still receive an error message, verify that you are inserting the card correctly so that the spring locks in as you fully insert it. When performed correctly an Icon will appear in the lower right hand corner of the LCD screen. Also try inserting the card while the camera is on.
The memory card may also need to be formatted through the camera’s settings-- Note: Formatting will delete all files, so be sure to transfer any important files to your computer before doing so
To Format: Insert the memory card into the camera and press the mode button to get to the mode screen. Enter into Tools/SETTINGS and find FORMAT. Once you select format you will receive a YES or NO option. Select YES and you will see a FORMATTING message. Once the formatting is complete, see if the camera reads the card and functions properly

    The camera can support an 8 Gigabyte SDHC up to Class 4 which will provide up to 4 hours of HD video. It may support up to a 32GB card, once they are made available by the major brands. We suggest using the SD Card brands Dane Elec. or San Disk. Mini SD and/or adaptor cards are not compatible

Why does my s120 keep saying memory card write protected?


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.

My memory card keeps saying it is in write protection and I keep flipping the switch on the side but it doesn't work, how do I fix it?


The write protection is initiated by your camera, not the lock switch on the side of the card. Check your manual for the procedure to cancel write protection.

My camera wont take pics and keeps saying card protect


Hi kyla04,

This could be as a result of the memory card being right protected by the right protect switch on it.


What you need to solve this problem is remove the memory card out and use the right protect switch and unlock it , you would just require to move the switch from it's position , please find the image below for more assistance.

Recently purchased an Aiptek IS-DV. It has


Your problem has a very simple fix. The camera which you have is not compatible with SDHC cards. It will only work with regular SD cards.

Your camera is incompatible with the later SDHC specification at the basic hardware level and so cannot format the card which you have purchased.

Note that SD cards are available up to and including 4GB and SDHC start at 4GB so you're not the only person to have made this mistake. In practice there are very few devices designed to use regular SD cards which will work correctly with 4GB SD; Aiptek only designed and tested the IS-DV up to 1GB SD capacity (see page 48 of the user manual), so this is the effective limit to the largest capacity memory card which you can use, if you try larger capacity cards they will either not work at all or will make the camera operations sluggish and you also risk damaging the card itself so that it will no longer correctly format. Aiptek never released any firmware updates to improve the SD compatibility on your camera.

I'm sorry not to be able to offer any way to use your current SDHC card but at least I may have prevented you making another purchasing mistake. Please return the favour by rating my answer.

I need help with my memory, it says full memory but theres no memory card.


That's why ist says so. According to the manual, there is an internal memory. (I don't seem to be able to put pictures there.) Anyway, since the onboard memory does not seem to exist, the camera has no place to write the image to. Hence, it displays the message "memory full", which is easiest. 

Try using an SD Card.

MY MEMORY CARD IS WRITE PROTECED MY CAMERA WONT WORK


Remove the memory card from the camera. On the side of the card, there is a tiny button. Push it to the other side of the tiny groove on which it sits. Voila your card is no more write protected. If you are still lost, let me know.
