Having problems with your Olympus Camedia C-765 Digital Camera ?

Do you know how to remove the write protect from my SD card. The card is now for some reason write protected.



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.
