Not sure if this is the proper forum but here goes: Have a Konica-Minolta digital camera with a 1.0 GB card. Typically I create a folder on the computer, copy the pics to the folder and then delete the pics from the card, Suddenly I cannot delete the pics and get a message that they are "write protected". Also, I get a message on the camera "card locked" and the camera is unusable. Any ideas on what I have done to cause these problems? How can I remove the "write protect" from the pics and delete them and how can I "unlock' the card? Thanks the help. '

Some SD cards have a teensy slide switch on the underside, if your card has one, slide the switch to the other position.

It's possible you've enabled the locking device on the card, by accident.
Carefully check out the card, and look for the lock, and make sure it's not engaged.
What type of flash media is it (SD, XD, etc.)?
