Default Can Someone help me please

I have a 16gb Sandisk memory card and for some odd reason its not working now. When I try to delete everything it saying "Cannot delete make sure you mobile device has sufficient memory, that the file is not set as read-only, and that you have permission to copy this file" Can someone tell me how I can make my memory card work again even if I have to take everything off of it. When I try to access the memory card on my mobile phone it saying that the access is denied. I dont want to get another one because I dont have the money now. Any suggestion.

Have you tried to reformat it using your camera's menu choice for format? Personally, I reformat my memory cards prior to *every* reuse using the camera's menu choice for format. That way, I insure that the card is formatted the way the camera expects it to be (since it's performing the format), and I always start out with a fresh File Allocation Table to reduce the possibility of corruption.

If for some reason (file system too corrupted, etc.) you can't format the card using your camera's menu choice for format (most cameras will have a format choice in their menus somewhere), then you may want to try this Panasonic SD format utility (and it also works on non Panasonic cards). You'll see a download link at the bottom of the page:

Check your manual for the phone to see if there's a LOCK function.
