Samsung es60 card locked solution


Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

I turn the caera on and I get a message stating " Card not initialized" Can this be fixed or do I need to buy a new card.


It just means that the card needs to be formatted (or initialized) in the camera. This will erase it so download any pics from it first....use a card reader if necessary. Then, go into the camera menu and find "format" (may be called "initialize") and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the card and bring it back to "like new" status.

Anytime I inserted memory card to my Samsung Digimax S600 Digital Camera it an error message is displayed saying "MEMORY CARD LOCKED". I have tried other memory card but i received the same message. How...


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.

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

Samsung s500 displaying card locked


When this problem occur you need to set the memory card unlock or not protected. Remove the memory card from camera and you can see a small button in the memory card, so you need to slide that to set the memory card unlock or not protected.

My computer dosen't recognize my samsung s85 how do I transfer pictures from the caera to the computer


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive.

CARD LOCKED


Pull the card out of the camera and slide the tiny slide switch on the card to the other position. All the SD-type cards that I have met have this lock on them.

Samsung digimax4010 memorycard locked cant take pictures


To fix this, remove the SD card from your camera. Look on the side and you will find a little switch. One end of the switch says locked the other end says unlocked. Move the switch from locked to unlocked. Replace it in your camera and turn it back on.

Car locked displayed and cannot be removed.


Look on the front of your memory card for words that say "lock" and it will usually have an arrow beside it. Move the switch over and reinsert your card. It should be able to read it. Kind of like how a floppy disc has a lock, so does a memory card.
