Having problems with your Olympus Stylus 770 SW Digital Camera ?

Why does my olympus camera say write project and won't let me take pics?


Answers :

I'm guessing that your memory card is an SD type. These cards have a little switch on the card that can write protect or "lock" it. Take the card out of the camera and check this switch. To unlock it, it should be moved towards the edge of the card which has the electrical contacts.
My sd card does not have the slide on it. The adapter one does though
