''Memory card is protected'' no matter what

My Kodak C913 camera keeps telling me that the memory card is protected and to reset switch on memory card. This happens with a brand new 1 GB card, or on the 4 GB cards I have. (I have tried different cards and its always the same message that pops up) No matter how many times I reset the lock, I still get the message. I love the camera but have only had it a few months and its driving me crazy.

Memory Card I just got my new Canon Power Shot G9. The user guide pictures a different memory card then what came with the camera. The guide shows a memory card that has ribbing and a write protection tab. The memory card that came with the camera does not. It is smooth all around except for one squared off corner. My problem is I cannot figure out, since the guide diagram and the actual card do not match, how the card is inserted into the camera? Please help! Thanks, Liz


They tricked you. The picture in the guide is of an SD card, but the card that came with the G9 is an MMC card. On both, there is a row of brass-colored contacts along one edge. This is what looks like ribbing in the guide. These contacts should go i ... Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera

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?


Yes, it's normal. You should never try to delete, format, transfer to camera, or anything else with the computer. It's always from camera to computer...never the other way around. And when you're finished downloading, always use the "safely remove ha ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 Digital Camera
