Having problems with your Fuji FinePix A800 Digital Camera ?

Hello! I have a problem with my cam. When I put the memorycard into the cam, it says - memory protect! What does it mean and what should I do? Thanks in advance!!


Answers :

Actually your memory card is 'memory-protected' ! You cannot use it without making it 'unprotected'.
\015\012
\015\012Try these steps to unprotect it :
\015\012
\015\0121. Remove the memory card from the camera.
\015\012
\015\0122. On the down-end (which faces outside when it's inside the camera) of the card, you will find a small sliding switch.
\015\012
\015\0123. Move the switch to the opposite direction (left or right) of the present position.
\015\012
\015\0124. Now, it is unprotected and you can use it!

When I install a memory card in my camera I get the message read only memory card, remove write protection to capture or write to card. The switch on the memory card is in the correct position, this is a card that I have been using with no problems until now. I also installed a brand new memory card and got the same message. I think there's a problem internally with the camera.
