    Upon closer examination I noticed that there was dirt or some sort of crumb was stuck in the unlocked tab preventing it from fully sliding up. I removed it and now it works!

There is a little slide switch on the side of the card to stop from overwriting data

I inserted kinston 4gb card in my digital camera , while in the unlocked position of switch.But camera shows "memory card error" "card locked"

  • There is a write-protection tab on the mini sd card HOLDER. Every time you insert this into your PC or card holder, this tab slides to the write protect position. Either keep resetting, inserting & reinserting until it doesn't slide or tape it down.
  • There is nothing wrong with the mini sd card. Simply locate the write protection key and push it.
  • The mini sd card has some error: Go for a low level formatting.
  • The card has virus: Remove the virus. The link for the steps is present in the related link at the bottom of the article.

    I have nokia 7210supernova and i got my kingston 2gb micro sd memory card locked and i don`t know any password so how to crack micro sd memory card password

    There should be a switch on the side of the memory card, which says 'LOCK' on one end, and 'UNLOCK' on the other end. Switch it to UNLOCK. If this fails, contact first your network provider(Orange, Voadfone...). If they cannot help, you need to contact Nokia. If this fails, contact Kingston. This will help.

    Nikon Coolpix 5900/4 GB Kingston SD Card

    The 5900 uses SD cards. The 4GB card you have is actually an SDHC card and will not work in the 5900. You'll have to stay with cards 2GB and smaller.

    Tried to unlock Lexar SD 2GB and Lexar SDHC 4 GB - No luck

    First of all, the 4GB card will never be able to work in your camera. Check on its face. It likely says SDHC, and SDHC cards as this format came out after your camera was designed (I know it looks exactly like a normal SD card, but it's not).

    Now the 2GB card should work with your camera as it is a standard SD card. Remove the card from your camera. Look on the side of the card for the tiny slide switch, and slide it to the other "unlocked" position. Reinsert it in the camera, and see if that corrects the problem.

    Hi there
    Check to make sure the cards write protect is off, take the card out of the camera, face the card towards you, look for a small white tab on the left hand side of the card, to unlock it push the tab down, it will be at the side of the card like this 59a6de4.jpg . Put it back in the camera and use the menu to format the card.
    If the format fails then its a possibility that you will need a new card.
