SOURCE: Memory card locked

I just got done fumbling around with the same problem. All you need to do is take the card itself out of camera and there's a mini switch on the side of the card that slides up and down for lock and unlock.

SOURCE: sandisk memory card

Has this card EVER worked with your camera? Since you didn't mention the model number of the Canon, it's possible that you have a compatiblity issue here. Most 4GB SD cards these days are actually SDHC cards, which store memory differently (in sectors, like a hard disc drive, rather than bytes, like your main memory). All SDHC compatible cameras also support SD cards, but cameras sold before the SDHC standard was created will not support SDHC memory cards.

There's a chance that Canon has a firmware upgrade to solve this. You would have to look on the Canon USA web site for this, based on the model number of your camera.

Take the card out. On the left side of the card is a tiny white switch. Reverse the position.

SOURCE: CARD LOCKED

There should be a small toggle along the end side (it is tiny and easily missed, but it is there, I just checked my memory card / mine is 4GB SD card from Sony) that you can swtich to unlock and your images may come back that way.

Look for it this way, hold the card face down it should be on the back edge where you use your thumb or finger to push it into the slot on your camera.

My camera says the my memory card is locked.?? i dont no how to unlock it My Ixus 70 says my card is locked, but the card is NOT locked (button on the side of the card is in unlock position). The came


Oops. The little latch on the side in the unlock position, should engage a switch in the camera, indicating the memory card is not writ protected. It is not an electrical switch doing something in the memory card. But is the switch in the camera is defect, you get the same result. If someone once tried to press in a memory card, the wrong way around, this could have been the cause of a damaged switch. Just check the memory card slot, of nothing is in the cardholder, blocking the little switch from working correct. Sure the switch is in the up position, like in the picture? 25288825-qj532vtjsqner5bmetfl14fj-5-0.png

My camera displays memory card locked. how do i unlock it


You didn't specify the make and model of your camera, so I'm assuming it uses SD/SDHC cards.
SD and SDHC 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.

Pull out your memory card, and find the little gray slide switch, if it is away from card connection it is locked, slide switch (little gray slide switch) toward the card connection. This will unlock your memory card.

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.

I noticed that this camera does not work well with cheaper memory cards. The only brand that works without fail is the SanDisk brand.
