I have a Kodak 8GB memory card I dedicated to READY BOOST to improve
Windows 7 performance in my laptop..  I now want to use it in the camera again.
I was able to use it to take more pictures, however, I can’t delete them because
The card is write protected.  How can I reformat the disk?

When I try to use formating on the camera it says
"reset switch on memory card", but it doesn't say
how to find the switch.  When I right click the card
folder, in the computer, no card switch is indicated.
How do I find the switch? I'm using Win 7.

There should be a tab on the card itself that you can slide one way to lock it and another way to unlock it. All sd cards I seen have the little tab you can move to lock/unlock it. An way this website may help solve the problem. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrBI0dZLYv4
