Having problems with your Samsung Digital Cameras ?
Can't remove the word protection on the screen and can't record
Look at 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.
