    Hi All
    I have a problem with an 1G XD card that was being used to upload photos to a website on a public PC.
    For some reason the card is now write protected and cannot shoot any photos or delete.
    Has anyone come across this problem or has the card gone bad:confused:

    For starters make sure your write protection switch is not set on lock. It is on the left side of the card.

    If your card doesn’t have a write protection switch or it is unlocked, right click on one of your images in Windows Explorer or My Computer. Select properties and make sure “Read only” hasn’t somehow been checked. If it has clear the box and Select all. Right click on one of the highlighted images and check “Archive”. When you Apply and OK you should have all of the images back to archive.
