Question about Canon PowerShot S51S Digital Camera

4 Answers

Locked Card Does anyone know how to unlock a memory card on the Optio W20? I follow the instructions (press 4-way controller down in play mode, select protect, hit ok) but then I don't get the same screen as what the instructions say will appear. I'm supposed to see a screen than gives me the option of protecting one image or all images, then there should be one that says protect or unprotect. Whenever I try to do this, I can only select protect, but my camera then says the card is locked - it won't let me do anything else!?! How can I access the unprotect all images screen? Thanks. I get the message on the camera "card locked"{

The memory card in my pentax optio 60 is full. Can I record over it and if so how The memory card in my pentax optio 60 is full can i recoed over the top of it and if so how David


Certainly. If you're sure you've copied all the pictures you want to your computer, simply format the card to wipe it clean. Rotate the mode dial to the screwdriver-and-wrench position and turn the camera on. Use cursor-down to select "Format" and press the OK button. The instructions are in the "Formatting an SD Memory Card or Internal Memory" section of the manual (page 22 in my copy).

Memory cards should be formatted each time you finish transferring your pictures to your computer. FixYa is full of people asking how to retrieve pictures from cards that haven't been formatted regularly.

How can I access the photos in the camera memory? Is there a way to copy them to the memory card?


Press the MENU button in Playback mode. Use the four-way controller to select [Copy image & sound]. Press right on the four-way controller. Use the four-way controller to select "Camera to SD" and press the OK button. All files are copied to the SD card.

Erasing the memory card;


All pictures in the internal memory and/or on the memory card can be erased at once. This is accomplished through either formatting or the "all-frame erase" function. I copied the following instructions from the advanced manual, which can be downloaded here: http://www.olympusamerica.com/files/d545zadvman.pdf. Adobe reader should open that file with no problem. If it doesn't, that's another issue altogether.

1. Enter playback mode by pressing the play button.
2. Press the OK MENU button.
3. Press the right arrow button (next to the lightning bolt) to access [MODE MENU]
4. Then, press the down arrow to access the [MEMORY(CARD)] tab.
5. Select the [ALL ERASE] function.
6. Select Yes and press OK MENU.

(You'll need to use the arrow buttons to navigate the menus. Please see pg 16 of the manual for instructions on how to do so.)

Note: when the memory card is in the camera, it will erase the pictures off the card. When the card is removed, the function above will erase the internal memory.

I cant get my pentax optio M20 unlocked


Do you have an SD card? If so you need to remove the card from the camera and look closely at the front of the card. You will see there is the little grey tab slider button on the left side. If it is pushed down into the locked position then you'll need to slide it up to unlock it. Then place the SD card back into your camera and all should be well..... Good Luck and Hope this helps you!

How to unlock the memory card of my digimax S500/S600


Your card is protected.

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.

Memory card locked!??


What you need to do is take out the card, and on the side of it there should be a little gray thing which can slide up and down. It needs to be slid all the way up. I hope this helps!!

Card Locked?


There is a switch in the memory card, you just have to slide it upward.

If you are using a new memory card, format it first.

Do the following:
- Press Menu/ Ok button
- Go to Set Up 2
- Select Format
- Select Yes
- Press Menu/ Ok button

It means that the camera is in 'Green' mode. Turn off the green mode by pressing the 'Green' button (also used as the delete button when in playback mode).
