Hi,
Remove the write protect lock off by taking the card out\015\012of the camera, face the card towards you, look for a small white tab on\015\012the left hand side of the card, to unlock it push the tab down, it will\015\012be at the side of the card like this 59a6de4.jpg .

There is a tiny switch (usually yellow) on the side of the memory card that is marked lock and unlock. Switch it from its current position to the other and you should be ready to go. A magnifying lens and bright light are usually needed to see the markings.
