Locked Memory Card

My Memory card says it's Locked in my camera but the little tab has NOT fallen off, and it's NOT on Locked. HELP. PLEASE. my other memory card works fine so I know it's not my camera. I am having the exact same problem. Memory card worked and then it didn't and the tab is NOT locked. Replacement memory card works so can't be the camera. Has to be something with the memory card. Any advice on how to access the pictures - that's all I care about at this point. Retrieval software doesn't even recognize the memory card or device... I have a Sandisk ultra 2.0 gb memory card and i have had it for over a year. Its the only one that i use. I was taking pix with it, and that night when i tried to view them, my camera said memory card error.. card locked. When i took the card out, the little slide thing was NOT on lock....what do i do to save my pix???

I use a Nikon D300 and have Sandisk Compact Flash memory cards. i ahve not come across this problem but would suggest that you insert the memory card into your camera and reformat the memory card. This should clear any errors in the system BUT IT WILL ALSO WIPE ANY PHOTOGRAPHS YOU AHVE TAKEN when formating the memory card.

The camera says the memory card is locked what do i do


On an SD card there is a switch at the side which can be moved to protect the card contents (locked) or permit writing to the card (unlocked). Just move this to the unlocked position.

I got cannon power shot sx130 is it reads memory card error the memory card is not locked but the eject button is not working how to fix this problem. thanks


Try to switch off the Camera and restart it gain. Again, Sometimes, its due to some auto-run software running in the card which prevents that from ejection. You can try to even format the card in the camera itself. That may work also.

As a last resort, check up your camera and get that memory card removed out of your Camera.

Message says memory card is write protected and does not allow me to take any more pictures


What kind of card is it? An SD card? If so, there should be a little tab/switch on the side of it that you can flick to resolve the issue. If not, have a look at this: How do you remove write protection from mini SD 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.
