Having problems with your Fuji Finepix Z20fd Digital Camera ?
My camera has placed a Protected card ! on my camera without my approval
No! I do not think your camera has placed a Protected card ! on my camera without my approval. Pull out your memory card and look for a very small "latch" at one of its sides. Push it the other way and try to access it again. This "latch" is the "lock/protection."
Is the slide switch on the side of the card in the locked position?

I just got back from my first cruise and took so many pictures. I don't have a USB so I went to go place the memory card into my computer but it won't read the card. So when I put the memory card back into the camera it said Memory Card Format "Power Off" or "Format" but I know that if I format it all my pictures will be erased. Is there any other way of uploading my pictures without erasing them?
