I have a 512 SD memo card for my FZ-5. It came from Pany and is a Panasonic brand card. It had a small, whiteplastic tab on the upper left corner of the card. When the tab was in the down position the card was said to be in the 'lock' position. Well, the darn tab fell off the other day. Now, when I put it in my camera, it will not allow me to add photos to the card. The LCD on the camera reads as follows:

"THIS MEMORY CARD IS PROTECTED"

I can playback pics on the LCD but i cannot add any new photos. When i push the shutter button it is like it is locked and nothing happens.

So, is the card junk now or can it be repaired?

I like my KingMax card better. It doesn't have a dumb protection tab. Thanks for the help/thoughts.

Hey, that is cool. It is only about 9 months old. I got it via a rebate deal that came with the camera. I don't have any paperwork on it (i'm horrible at organizing) but I guess i can give them a call, explain the problem and see if they want to make a good PR move. How does that sound?

Thanks.

Will do. Might be a few days before I call them. I'm swamped.

What is the deal with that protection tab anyway? As mentioned above, my other card doesn't have it. It looks like just one more thing to go wrong. Therefore, i think when i buy other cards, i will make sure it DOESNT have that 'feature'. Ugh. :sad:
