Having problems with your Olympus Digital Cameras ?

My c450 Olympus digital has slipped into write protect. I can't take more photos or transfer them to my laptop. Help!


Answers :

Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Ok button - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to card setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect message and the card can be used again.
