Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

I have the HV 20 HD camcorder. I need to erase ALL THE STILL PHOTOS AND yet I think I accidently "protected" them and they won't erase. I need help with both unprotecting and erasing all the photos. Can you help me please?


Answers :

Image protection and erasing are covered on pages 64 and 65 of the manual (you can view/download the manual here). If you are going to erase all images, you can just initialize the card (see page 65). It will erase all images, even protected ones.
