Inserting Memory Cards
Inserting memory cards upside down or backwards 
could damage the camera or the card. Check to be 
sure the card is in the correct orientation.

The Write Protect Switch
Memory cards are equipped with a write protect switch to 
prevent accidental loss of data. When this switch is in the 
“lock” position, the memory card can not be formatted and 
photos can not be deleted or recorded (a beep will sound if 
you attempt to release the shutter). To unlock the memory 
card, slide the switch to the “write” position.
