Have you copied the files to a folder on the Hard Drive. If so Highlight all the files and right mouse click. Select Properties and clear the Read only check box.

This is usually a default setting within the camera itself...

If you can't copy the photos to your hard drive, place the card back in the camera and peruse the settings until you find that one that will remove write protection. If you have the camera manual, it may be quicker to cruise the manual for the correct option.

Peruse, eh?

What have you been eating, drinking, sniffing, wearing that has led to the use of such high-fallooting words then ??

What's wrong with 'browse' (or in my favourite ethnic locale) 'take a gander'...?

I typed it. Give a girl a break. Sheesh.
Posh? Not a word that's ever been used before to describe me (and don't ask what has as I surely won't divulge)!

Physical Write Protect Switch?

by Bizzo In reply to Error write protected

Could you have manually switched the write protect on when moving the card from camera to PC?

It's to do with storage device policies:

I had the same problem; after setting it back to zero, I "gained access" (Mycroft: it lemme in, marra!)

Hope this helps
