Unable to take photos or delete photos message saying card locked


You didn't specify the make and model of your camrera, so I'll assume it uses SD cards.

Take the memory card out of your camera and look at it. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

I am unable to take photos with my samsung digimax s800 camera as the message 'CARD LOCKED' keeps coming up on screen. I have deleted loads of photos so the memory card is definitely not full. Any ideas?

! this card cannot be used comes up after I took a few photos


Hi,

No need to worry. It's just that as your computer is new so you will have to install the driver (the software that came with the camera) once again.
If you have the CD then install it from there or you can download it from here.( Nikon Transfer)
If you are still unable to download the pics from the camera then 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.

Good luck and have a nice day.
Thanks for using Fixya.

Screen shows 'card locked' ,Unable to take photos Memory card checked. It is not 'locked'. Exchanged yto new card but still ;card locked'.


Remove the SD card from the camera. Slide the tiny switch on the side of the card to its other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card in the camera. But if you've already tried this, see this link for additional things that you can try.

Memory card locked!


There is alittle slide on the memory card.
Take it out. Look for it. Depending what you have it may be yellow, look on the left. If it's down, slide up and it will be unlocked. :)

Try reading the card independent of a camera i.e. on a computer or a photo kiosk to determine if the card is readable damaged
