You might want to describe what camera you're using.

I see that you've posted a similar question earlier for the Toshiba PDR-3300. Have you gone into the menu and checked the 'Protect' setting? I've just done a quick google on this camera and it as the following to say about removing file protection:

Playback Mode: This mode lets you review captured images on the memory card, as well as erase them, write-protect them, or set them up for printing on a DPOF device. Menu options in this mode include:

* Multi: Shows an index display of all images on the SD memory card, six images at a time. Also switches back to Single display mode.
* Protect: Write-protects the currently-displayed image, preventing it from being erased or manipulated (except via card formatting). This option can also remove protection.

Sorry, the 3300 in my reply is a typo. The link and details I posted are for the 3310. You can download the instruction manual in PDF format from here. If the procedure to unprotect the image isn't working then I guess it could be a fault with the camera.

Have you ruled out the memory card, wabit? It could be 'locked' for some odd reason. Try if you have the same problem with another memory card. If the camera works with the other memory card, your first card is the problem. If your camera doesn't work with the other memory card either, it's not the card that is the problem, but the camera.

Agree with Rokcet Scientist wabit. Make sure that the slider on the side of your SD card is fully forward, at the end where the contacts are. See page 25 pf the manual linked above
