Write Protect - How do i fix it without deleting pics?

Hi Everyone, I have a Fujifilm XD 1 GB picture card in my Olympus Stylus Tough 12 megapixel camera. It was working fine, no problems, I have taken lots of pics on the card.

Then yesterday I turned the camera on and it says ‘Write Protect’ and i can’t access any of the picture files. How do take the write protect off?? I don’t want to delete the files or format the card before i can get the pics off.

Thanks for your help,


Hi and Welcome!

have you already tried to copy the data from the card to your computer using a card reader?
