Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX S630 Digital Camera ?

It comes up memory card is write protected. What does that mean?


Answers :

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, write-protecting it. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card, enabling write.

If the switch is already in the unlock position, slide it fully the other way and then back again. If that doesn't work, try a different card.
