Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

SD card doesnt have a lock toggle, but says protected and wont let me take pictures from my fugi film camera...why?


Answers :

I've never seen an SD card without a lock toggle, only earlier ancestral MMC cards lacked it: the toggle is a basic part of the SD card technical specification.

If you lay the card with the contacts downwards and away from you (the clipped corner of the card will be top right) then the lock toggle will be on the left edge of the card. If it's already unlocked then slide it fully to locked and fully back to unlocked again. The locked position is towards the top edge of the card.

Your SD card will only lack a toggle if it has been broken off or if you have misidentified it and you actually have a CF or xD card. If this is the case then please report back for further advice.
All SD cards should have a toggle, unless it has fallen out, or its one of the "specials" usually found in Sat-Navs which were made to be read only (with maps on). You don't say which Fuji you have - some used to take xD cards, which don't have a slider, but are easily recognisable by their one curved side of the card. I'll assume you have an SD card for this reply.
\015\012----------------------------------------------
\015\012Here's a recap of what you are looking for:
\015\012
\015\012On the SD card there is a small slider - which allows you to lock the card (to prevent accidental erasure).

If you put in on the table with contacts upwards, corner cut top left, then the slider is on the right hand edge, about 1/3 the way down. If it is slid to the top position (nearest the contacts) the card is unlocked. If it is slid down (away from the contacts) the card is locked.

If it is a damaged / "cheap" card, sometimes the slider falls out, in which case the card is locked. You can still read from it, but not write to it until fixed or replaced.

First check is to turn the camera off, remove the card, move the slider to locked, then back to unlocked. Replace in the camera and turn on.
---------------------------
\015\012As to your choices if it is broken (or a read only map SD card), then you might like to try the camera with another SD card, to see if the problem persists? (A reputable photo store will often lend you a card for the 20 seconds it takes to do this test)
\015\012
\015\012Repair is very fidgety (even assuming you can find the slider). Most people tend to migrate their stuff to a new card.

\015\012Hope this is helpful.
