To fix this, remove the SD card from your camera. Look on the side and you will find a little switch. One end of the switch says locked the other end says unlocked. Move the switch from locked to unlocked. Replace it in your camera and turn it back on.

The card can also read as 'locked' if there is no memory left on the card and/or if it is not designed for the camera you have. Try all tips above first and if the problem still exists, would recommend buying a new memory card with more space such as a 4GB or more.
It might be due to a bad contact of the placed memorycard.
1. Pull the memorycard out and in the camera several times and retry. 2. If not OK, format the card in the camera. If that does not work, format it in the computer. 3. Try another memorycard and recheck.
Look at your memory card. 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 you have the pictures on the camera(memory card)
try to transfer pictures first using a cardreader. after you transfer all pictures to your computer you can now try to format the memorycard and try it again.
note: it will not work if the memorycard you're using was formatted on a computer before with a fat system and you are now trying to have it read on a computer on an ntfs system.
Look on the front of your memory card for words that say "lock" and it will usually have an arrow beside it. Move the switch over and reinsert your card. It should be able to read it. Kind of like how a floppy disc has a lock, so does a memory card.
