    Even with the side toggle switched to the unlock position, it remains locked.

SOURCE: SanDisk 8GB SDHC card cannot be read by either computer or T-Mobile Dash phone.

Solution :

Put the card in your phone, link the phone to your pc and format the card through your pc. You should see two additional drives, one for your phones memory and one for your card. I had the same problem with my phone but it is now sorted !

Hi Tony,

Have your My Computer window open and re-insert the card into the reader. If it doesn't show immediately, then right click and choose refresh. It should show up then.

Memory card locked


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.

The R725 works with SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in devices not designed for them. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I have a SanDisk SDHC Card class 4 4 gb and it won't work in my Canon Power shot SD630, I get a memory error that says card is locked, however card is not locked, what camera canI use this card in?


The SD630 works with MMC and SD cards, 2GB or smaller. It does not work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

Your SDHC card can be used in any camera that accepts SDHC cards.

I just got a Polaroid DVF-720 digital camcorder and I got a SanDisk 8GB SDHC card but it will not format it says format error Manual says it will handle up to 32GB SDHC card


Are you sure the SD card is working properly? Try using a card reader and format it on the PC.
Also, make sure the Lock switch is flipped to the "unlocked" state.

Somehow we locked our Sandisk Extreme SD HC 4gb card. And now when we put it in the camera, it says card locked. Can anybody help how to unlock it?


SD and SDHC 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.
