My canon EOS 100D digital SLR is saying 'card write protected' when ever I turn it on. It just started to appear on my screen for no apparent reason one day and it won't let me take pictures anymore. It's not the card it's the camera, I have tried sliding the switch on the side of the memory card and even tried new cards in my camera but it happens with every card I insert. I have googled the problem and can't find any solution to fix the problem. Would be very grateful if you could help at all

I've been using the same memory card for a while. Recently, after uploading some pics onto my pc from the card, upon putting it back in the camera i got a message on the viewfinder that says, "Memory card is write protected."

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
