Try moving the lock switch to on and then off again: I've had this happen on various types of flash memory and this usually clears the fault. next, make sure that the memory card contacts are clean by gently wiping them with a cotton bud slightly moistened with alcohol.

If that doesn't work then try a replacement memory card. 256MB SD cards are such poverty spec items that you can often get them for free on Yahoo FreeCycle. If you buy one it will be for peanuts.

If the replacement card doesn't work then you have a camera problem, but may be able to bypass the fault by using CF cards instead as your camera takes those as well.

Camera saying memory card locked slide lock write psition


The Nikon N75 is a film camera. It doesn't use a memory card at all.

If you're referring to some other digital camera that does use an SD/SDHC card, look at the memory card. SD and SDHC 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.

Hi I have a Canon 500D and the camera, not the sd card, is is on card lock and I do not know how to remove it. I have looked in menu and gone to 'protect Images' and it says "Card write protected'. ...


Hi Carolyn. There could be several reasons for locked card. 1. pin on side of the SD card must be in UP position, not DOWN2. Reformat your card via computer to FAT323. Card reader inside camera has one "little piece" inside for monitoring if the pin on SD card is pulled down or not. If this "little piece" is bent or broken, your camera could mean that SD card is locked. In this case easiest way is to return camera back to shop. Or if you like, disassembly camera, but you will lost your warranty.

Have canon rebel xs , getting card write protected error


If this is a Canon Rebel XS there is no memory card in a 35mm film camera If this is a Rebel XSi then generally this error is caused by the memory card lock switch here is a diagram to show the correct orientation of this switch

Also after you have unlocked the card you should format the memory card in the camera it is going to be used in. Failing to do so may produce other errors and possibly corrupt pictures and files Formatting clean the memory card to produce optimum performance between the camera and card

Says card protected and wont let me take a photo


A film camera is saying this?

Assuming you are referring to a digital camera of some type, take the memory card out of the camera and look at it. 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. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Shows card write protected.. checked card replaced card. not card problem


Hi,

Thanks for using Fixya.

(i) Unlock the memory card.

There is a Lock switch on the left side of the SD card. Make sure the Lock switch is slid up (unlock position). You will not be able to modify or delete the contents on the memory card if it is locked. 9632f20.gif


(ii) Toggle the lock switch.

If the lock switch is not on lock:
1. Slide the switch up and down. Repeat this 3 times.
2. Let it stay on the Lock position for 30 seconds.

3. Slide the switch up to unlock the card.

4. Try to transfer files into the device.
Thanks for using Fixya.
Good Luck and have a nice day.
