    you can try by moving the lock back and forth a few times and see if it has just been jammed if not you can always try formating the card in the computer and this may resolve the issue if not it may be a csae of getting a new card

Sd card memory doesn't recognised


On the actual card, make sure that the "locked-switch" is in the middle. The "lock-switch" is the sliding tab on the side of the micro SD card. The dial should be in the exact middle, or as close to the middle as possible, or the card will read something along the lines of "This data card in encrypted," when inserting the chip into the computer.

Hi I have a Canon 500D and the camera, not the sd card, is is on card lock and I do not know how to remove it. I have looked in menu and gone to 'protect Images' and it says "Card write protected'. ...


Hi Carolyn. There could be several reasons for locked card. 1. pin on side of the SD card must be in UP position, not DOWN2. Reformat your card via computer to FAT323. Card reader inside camera has one "little piece" inside for monitoring if the pin on SD card is pulled down or not. If this "little piece" is bent or broken, your camera could mean that SD card is locked. In this case easiest way is to return camera back to shop. Or if you like, disassembly camera, but you will lost your warranty.

How do i unlock my memory card its not allowing me to take photos.


I am assuming that your camera uses and SD card to store the pictures.
If you remove the memory card from the camera, you should see a little slider on the side of the card that says "lock," it is easy to accidentally lock SD cards.
I have attached a picture to show you what a locked SD card looks like.\:codyrt.jpg
Here is another image showing the card in the unlocked position: codyrt_0.jpg

My memory cards locked I should OPEN my memory cards


Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

6c99e31.jpg

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards

Turn camera on and I get a little lock on the screen I can't get past this


Assuming this camera uses SD card, you may have set the card to "write protected". On the side of the SD card, there's a little slider that prevents accidental erasing images.

Card Locked


Hi,
If it is an SD memory card, there is a switch actually on the edge of the card. Try moving it to the other position and reinstall. Most people don't realise it's even there untill they have problems.

If this works , please rate accordingly so others may follow.

Thanks.

If it doesn't, there will be access to view the locked photo's on the camera. Selecting protect/ lock again should remove this.

Locked Card


Take the memory card out of the camera. Look at it carefully and you will seea small tab. Move the tab from the locked position to the unlocked position. Re-install the memory card into the camera and then you're done.

Card Error


If the memory card is not recognized in the PC or it is impossible to access the data on it, the controller on the card is damaged. There is only one way to get the data back, unsolder memory chips and directly access their raw data with a programable chip reader. Software can't help, that is a physical damage!
