Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
I can't take a picture. it says "Protected Card"
Take the memory card out of the camera and look at it. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

The Sandisk memory card in my camera says memory card full but when I try to view the pictures it says no image. My computer cant read the pictures either. I know its full because the battery died while taking pictures.
