On most memory cards, there's a switch that prevents writing to the card. It's on the left edge. Make sure it's "up" (toward the connectors) and not down.

if that doesn't help, try a different memory card. If it still happens, then we know the problem exists with the camera and not the card.

Look at your memory card. 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.

My Coolplix L18 wont let me do nothing


Hi

Take the memory card out of the camera.
You will see a small switch on the card (it is the lock switch)
Slide it to the opposite side and there you go!

It's easy to accidentally lock your card without even knowing it.
lol my mom just had this exact same problem and it was driving her crazy (she too didn't realize the card had a physical lock switch)

Have funn,
Bye

Card lock


there is a little switch on the left side of SD cards; if it's down, your card is locked and you cannot copy anything on it or delete anyfile, also you cannot take any picture by it. so you have to change the switch postion. just this! I hope this helps...

My DXG model 552 is locked?


Try pulling the memory card out of camera too see if you can take a picture with out the memory card in place.

If you can do this the memory card is locked. Look at the memory card and find small swith on the side. Look for the lock symbol and be sure the switch is not in the locked position. Move the switch as needed.

Put the card back in and try it. This should solve your problem

Card locked


The card usually has a slide lock on its face, which you can switch to a lock position. This protects the images from being deleted. You may have inadvertently hit that switch. Pop the card out and take a look and see if you see it there. If so, switch it and try again and it should work.

Your memory card has a small white "switch" on the side. Move the switch and your card will unlock. It is a saftey so you don't erase anything accidentaly.

Memory card locked!??


The card locked usually means 'protected' Check out the manual for image protection - on/off. Or put card back into computer and delete[NOT FORMAT] from there. A more comprehensive manual is usually found the the CD that came with the camera
