-likely the 'lock' tab on the memory card has been moved....a safety to prevent you from re-writing your card

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

if the tab/switch is missing do not dispair..
1 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

My computer no longer recognizes my Samsung L830 camera


Try NOT connecting your camera to your 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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

L830 Digital camera - says "card locked" Tried to move the tab at the side of the memory card but still locked?


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. The second most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out (sorry, an A540 can only use 2GB or less standard SD cards. These are very inexpensive these days, and are available on Amazon if your local store no longer carries them). There are also other common causes if the above didn't help, with troubleshooting steps for this problem listed here.

Why can I not see the pictures I have taken?


First, make sure that there is a memory card on the camera itself, the camera has a mode that will allow you to take sample shots even if you have no memory card.

If there is a memory card, make sure that you press on the Play button to be able to view the pictures you took.

A New 2G SD Memory Card Destroyed Samsung L60 Camera's Screen


Ron,

I am kinda confused what you mean by black blob, but anyhow a SD card cannot do this to a camera as long as the camera supports the memory card. I feel there is a little more to it then this. The lcd will need to be repaired this will need to be taken to a camera shop to repair this with a new lcd around $50 bucks respectivly. I find it hard to understand this ether as this should not have happend. the memory card if compatable should not have shorted this camera lcd out.

Please do leave a postive rating and feeback for your free answer today.

My samsung digital camera L830 does not come on since I plugged my samsung usb cable from my samsung mp3player to connect it to pc. Any ideas? Thanks


First remove the memory card and batteries, then put fresh batteries back in and try it.
If that doesn't work, push and hold the 'power' button and the 'play' button at the same time for a few seconds.

Card Locked ! Error


Remove SD card, then whilst card is removed, delete all pictures that may still be stored in cameras 'internal' memory (usually just a few) then replace SD card. Should be unlocked now?.
