Removal of Olympus SmartMedia Card Write Protect - Photography

While I was working with some photos taken by an Olympus D520-Zoom, located on a 64MB SmartMedia card, using a card reader attachment to my computer, the Camedia software froze the machine. Without thinking it through, I rebooted without removing the card from the reader. Now, the card reports it is write protected.

    Default Removal of Olympus SmartMedia Card Write Protect

    While I was working with some photos taken by an Olympus D520-Zoom,
    located on a 64MB SmartMedia card, using a card reader attachment to my
    computer, the Camedia software froze the machine. Without thinking it
    through, I rebooted without removing the card from the reader.
    Now, the card reports it is write protected. In the camera and on the
    computer, I can view the photos, but I am unable to work with them -
    download, edit, copy, and the like.
    The only way to remove the write protection, apparently, is to reformat
    the card in the camera, but that will erase the valuable photos.
    Is there a way to penetrate the write protect software on the card?

    Try using Windows Explorer instead of Camedia software to copy to HD.

    That is what I do. i only use Camedia S/W for stiching panoramas.
    I use Photosuite to edit.

    Let us all know how that works out.

    I primarily use it for automatic correction of lens distortion.
