Deleting photos off 8gb scan card

Getting ready to take a trip and I was cleaning up the SD card. WAnting to delete all photos from it while in the camera. I have a Nikon 90. Never had a problem with doing this before but now its telling me that "the option is not available with the current settings. Also says that for a number of the other items listed in the Playback menu.

Any idea what settings they may be talking about. Right now it is set on Auto, all the way. Can't figure out what I have done to change it. Help soon!

Try inserting the card into your computer and deleting it from there.

Thank you so much - its the card having problems - not my camera - thank goodness and luckily all the pictures (all 900) had been saved!

I have one camera that needs to have the card removed and re-inserted sometimes more than once before it will work in the camera...bad card I guess.

Some cards have a small sliding "lock" on the edge of the card. Make sure that is "unlocked".

Beyond that, when viewing photos on the camera and zooming in and out, sometimes I'll "lock" a photo file. Select the locked photo, then rehit the lock button to unlock that file.

Lazypup gives great advice. People seldom reformat their cards. With all the files that are created and deleted on a card, occasionally little bits of code can be left behind, or get jumbled. They can corrupt the card. So every once in a while, reformat the card. It wipes it clean and lets you start anew.
