Having problems with your Olympus Stylus Tough 6010 / ? TOUGH-6010 Digital Camera ?

How do i take off write protected on an olympus 6010


Answers :

It's not the camera, it's the memory card. 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.

If that doesn't work, try another card.
