Check the card slot for debris and clear it out gently with canned air, small thin piece of plastic, etc on the same side as the lock tab. Try not to use anything metal unless you have a really delicate touch.

Message memory full

If you've take photos and filled the card, you'll need to transfer them to a computer and then erase / format the card in the camera to free up the space on it. If that doesn't work - remove the card. With the contacts pointing up and away from you - looking at the label side - locate the tab on the left edge. Push it UP - away from the LOCK position. If it is loose, put tape on it and carefully reinsert into camera. Try to take pictures again.

I put a new sandisk in and the camera screen keeps going to the Format screen, and wont go away nor go to another screem if i press menu, what to do?

maybe your memory card is 1. not already reformated; try to reformat it in your laptop or pc then try to put it back 2. your memory card is locked; check the side of your memory card, if it is lock. Some memory cards have lock in the side.

When you turn camera on or try to take picture it says card locked

The memory card in the camera has been locked. if you remove the memory card, you will see a small tab on the card and it is likely switched to the "lock" position. This can happen easily by accident if you are handling the card. Simply slide the switch on the memory card away from the lock position and you should be back in business.

Every Time I Insert My Sd Card It Comes Up Error Volume Label Syntax And I Cant Get My Pictures On To My Computer Wat Can I Do To Get It Working Again??? Please Help Me Straight Away. Thank You xxxx

Some times Memory cards need to be reformated by the operating system you are using, so it will put a volume label when you format it, that way you won't get a syntax error.
When you plug in your memory card when your computer should recognize the Memory card just like a hard disk. That is when you need to re-format the memory card just like a hard disk. then try taking pictures then try transfering to your computer.

My sd card is locked every time i take a picture or a video and when i put it on internal memory it does take a picture but not much memory but when i put it on auto setting i can't delete anything and all...

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. Try sliding it all the way away from the contacts and then all the way toward them. If that doesn't fix it, try another card. If that doesn't do it, then you may have a problem with the mechanism within the camera.

Card locked

There's a little yellow switch on the left side of your memory card labled "lock" with an arrow pointing down. Push it up. Note: If it doesn't work right away, try uploading all your photos to your computer and then dumping them off of the card.  Push the switch up again and it should start taking pictures again.

Memory Card Locked

I had to replace two memory cards. Of course I tried the Lock slider thing on the side with no success. The card is cheaply made. I bought a different brand this time, Lexar. I think my old brand was Dane something. It seemed to happen whenever my battery got low. The card looked like a piece of cardboard and acts like one too!
