Having problems with your GE WM1050 Digital Camera ?

Camera has write protect showing...how do i fix it


Answers :

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.
