If it's a brand new card, it needs to be formatted with the camera. If it's been used before, the files may have been corrupted when plugged into your (or another) computer.

Issue: [Memory card locked] message appears on the screen.
Solution: Change the memory card lock switch to the normal setting

The SD card has a lock switch to prevent existing data from being erased. To record images or movies this switch must be in the normal (non lock) position. Different brands of SD memory cards may identify this switch differently. Regardless the procedure should be the same. Please remove the card from the camera and ensure that the switch is not in the locked position. sdcardlocked.jpg

You should be able to retrieve photos, but not writing or erasing if the switch is switched to write protect.

If it's not functioning correctly, the camera may need service at Canonusa.com.

My Canon Powershot A480 says the SD card is full even though it is not. How do I fix this?


You most likely have a problem with the memory card reader inside the camera. Have it repaired,it's not expensive at all and it's the only option for correcting this problem. This place is excellent and the most affordable for Canon Powershot repairs (it's all they work on): www.CamerasAndParts.com Go to their site and you should find the email address for them. Send them an email, they'd be the ones to help you with this problem since it's a Canon. Good luck

Powershot A480 saying card locked. cannot snap, but could only view the pictures on the card.


Look at your memory card. SD 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.

Saying memory card error card locked!


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. There are also other common causes if the above didn't help, with troubleshooting steps for this problem listed here.
