Having problems with your Olympus Stylus 850SW Digital Camera ?

I want to selectively erase photos but I cannot cancel the write protect. I can't open the playback menu.

Answers :

First if the photo's are write protected..this is probably an issue with the card ...see that the card has a button on the side if it is a SD card and you have to put it in unlock mode..
another issue to get into the view mode you have a button on the display side that select the mode after you open it ..and if it opens in shooting mode it will open in view mode also ..but even so you will have to erase them one by one in this way ..
My suggestion is to connect it to a computer using the driver and the data cable ..and after you did that ..look into the my computer folder and if you have a card in the camera it will see it like removable storage device and the pics will be inside that folder..and all you have to do is right click on picture and properties and here un-check the view only for to be able to copy and erase them...
or if you do not have a card but is on the internal memory ..try to see if it sees the camera into my computer folder and it will behave the same ..select the one you want to erase and ...choose delete ..or ..if they ar e not seen ..you will have to use a photo manager to import the pictures..ACDsee 9 will work ..
If this do not work ...or you didnt understood what I explained ..please let me know ..and explain more what kinda device ,,and if it has or not a card ..
