My canon EOS 100D digital SLR is saying 'card write protected' when ever I turn it on. It just started to appear on my screen for no apparent reason one day and it won't let me take pictures anymore. It's not the card it's the camera, I have tried sliding the switch on the side of the memory card and even tried new cards in my camera but it happens with every card I insert.
