Insert your SDHC card back into your camera. Go to the menu and search for the Format card function. Select Yes.

just perform a "format" function using the camera; ask my kid to become my model & took a few shots; download to PC & perform a "delete" function on the card same error pop up again; is it only "format" function from the camera will erase the data & unable to use "delete" function from PC?

thanks

I have written an informational thread about the cause and how to fix the reader. But cannot remember the title. Do search it.

don't delete images from computer, make sure you have download all and done a backup copy.

always use camera to format the memory cards, so will less change of having card read/write error

you need to learn how to use the clubsnap search function better.

just search for threads started by you.

this is the thread, i hope it helps the threadstarter because i don't know what is going on either.

That's the correct link! :thumbsup:
What the "lock" tab on the SD/SDHC card does is simply to push a spring contact inside the card reader. When the spring contact touches the circuit board, the SD/SDHC card can be written on.
