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?
