Card proection? card protected? what does this mean


Answers :

It meand that the protection of whatever is on your card is activated. Somewhere on the cars will be a small, sometimes a very small switch which you flick across and this stops anything , camera or computer writing to the card. It.s not an electrical switch but just piece of plastic which will block a hole somewhere on the card. Similar to the old 3.5 floppy disk. If the hole is blocked it's protected and if the hole is open you can write to it. Look very closely at the card and you'll spot it. Whatever position it's in, switch it to the opposite direction and the protection warning should vanish.
