I have a Sandisk memory card, and everyone I try to take a picture or delete a picture from the camera itself or on the computer, it wouldn't allow me. This has been happening for over 2 months now and...

Try the locking mechanism on the side. It can lock sometimes if it is loose,as you put it into the slot. If necessary tape it in unlocked mode. It (the switch) will appear on the upper left hand corner of the SD card or micro SD adapter.

Check if you have the tiny lock on either left or right side panel of the SD card. Check if it is slid to lock state.

Good luck.

How to remove write protection from my sd card

While looking at the front of your SD card, the label on your card should have "lock" printed on the left upper corner of the label. On the left side of the card should be a very small tab. If the tab is closest to the top of the SD card, it is unlocked. Likewise, if the tab is closer to the middle of the card, it is locked. The tab slides up and down; up is unlocked and down is locked. Hope this helps!

Micro sd 2gb (sandisk) is problem keylock or code

Good day,
There is a switch on the adapter that allows to lock or unlock write-protection. This feature is used to ensure you do not mistakenly delete your pictures, videos or contacts. It is on the top left hand side picture above. Pull the tab up or down to lock or unlock as you wish.
Hope this helps.

SIR my sndisk 2GB mamory card is locked .i forgot the password .how can i unlock my mamory card ?

SD cards (or MicroSD, using ad adapter) are locked using a mechanical switch on their left side, and not using password! Simply, take the SD card (or the SD adapter) and change the switch position.
Usually the UP position is the Unlocked position...

When i want to send picture to memory card it comes up and says its not ready

This happens with 2GB cards.
If you are using an SD adapter (where you put the micro SD in the adapter to make it a full size SD card) and you have an built-in card reader, it may be your card reader is a little old and wasn't made to support 2GB cards.
One other thing to check is that the card is not locked. Look for the lock sysmol in the corner and make sure it is unlocked..
