    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!

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.

    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.
