Having problems with your Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera ?

How can I delete" write protected" and protected photos from sd card individually?



Answers :

Unprotect them first, then you can delete them normally. See page 129 of the manual at http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/3/0300001393/01/eosrebelxs-1000d-im-en.pdf

If the memory card is protected, unprotect the card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Hi, I've a Panasonic LUMIX FZ38 (fw version 1.0). When I want to clear the SDHC content via pc (camera in Mass Memory Mode), or to transfer the pictures via cut, it says ''Unable to delete...the storage card is write protected''. but my card isn't protected! And it's impossible to set the photo folder out of ''Read Only Mode''. Instead, if I put the same SDHC in a memory card reader, I can do everything I want. Do you think it's normal?
