After locking memory card, do I then unlock it to take pictures and will that then erase the memory card or can you tell me how to so


Locking the memory card prevents you from taking and adding photos to the memory card. It also prevents you from deleting photos from the memory card.
If you want to erase all the photos off the memory card. unlock the memory card, go to the camera's Menu and scroll through the settings ti Format the memory card, then format the memory card.

Powershot s3 is memory card locked


Look at your memory card. SD/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.

I have the samsung s630 and i have taken some pictures on it before i got a memory card. i want to save them to my memory card, but when i insert the memory card those photos wont show up. how do i get...


If you remove the card from the camera and connect the camera to your computer with the USB lead, you should see the camera's internal memory as a disk drive on the computer. If there is a memory card inserted, you will see that memory instead.

Unlocking individual pictures is done with the same function that locked them. It is probably on a menu available when you are viewing the pictures on the camera.

CARD LOCKED appears oo screen, camera wont work?


Does this camera take a memory card, separate from the built-in memory of the camera? If so, remove that memory card and look closely at all sides and edges, to make sure that there is not a read-only protection switch on it.
Many of these memory cards have tiny switches, sliders back and forth, that protect the memory from being erased.
If you slid that switch into the locked position without being aware that it is there, and without knowing that you did, then the error message makes sense.
Remove the memory card and look at it very carefully.

Reads memory card is protected but, it is not


It's the cards, but it's not necessarily a problem.

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.
