Question about Samsung Digimax L830 Digital Camera
Can't unlock my memory card to take a picture
Sounds like the 'lock' tab on the memory card has been moved to the 'safety' to prevent you from re-writing your card accidentally
Fix it by:
1 remove memory card from camera
2 look for the very little tab/switch on the front of the card
3 slide it to the unlocked position (opposite of now)
4 put it back into camera...should now allow you to take pictures
if the tab/switch is missing do not dispair...
-use a small piece of clear tape to cover this 'tab/switch' opening
-this is the same concept as cassette/vhs/ 5 1/4" floppies...removing the 'tab' to lock it
