Look at your memory card. SD 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.

SOURCE: card locked

Take the SD card out and unlock the card by moving a small slide on the side of the SD card, sometimes you can accidentially lock it when re-inserting the card.

Most SD Memory cards have a little switch on the side to lock them, try switching that to the other position.

When this problem occur you need to set the memory card unlock or not protected. Remove the memory card from camera and you can see a small button in the memory card, so you need to slide that to set the memory card unlock or not protected.

I only have 7 pictures on here. I've tried taking the memory card out but still get the message that the memory is full. Don't know what else to do. Help

Check whether the sd card has the 'lock' switched on. Its a physical slide button on the side of the sd card which may sometimes cause this error. Thumb me up if I helped. :)

Hi, I own the Canon PowershotA540, recently I discoverd that once I put the SD card in my computer to download the pictures it downloads them, but once I put the card back into my camera all the pictures...

This sounds like the program you are using to download the pics is set to erase them from the card when the download is complete. You need to dig into the program and adjust the settings. That's as much as I can tell you since I don't know what program you're using. Your camera is fine.

Digital camera about 4 years old, take pics, they are on screen when reviewed, but when I put SD card in computer they do not come on the computer. Couple of days later, took more pics, put SD card in...

Possible that the SD card is having errors, So take a scan on the card and confirm. Also check the card on another PC to confirm if there are images on the card. If not there can be errrors in the camera. It will be ideal to have another SD card ( borrowed) to be inserted to the camera to confirm.

Just got new easyshare, cannot review pics and pics will not copy

All cameras need a memory card of some description. A 1GB SD card would be more than big enough from any photographic shop. Make sure that the lock switch on the side of the SD card is not set.

Check the memory whether the lock ( a small switch on the memory card) is activated. If so deactivate it.

Can't remove pics from SD card

I don't know how much value you place on the photos you have stuck there but will they copy?
If they are somehow set as hidden or read only, they may a problem.
If they will copy, paste them onto your PC and then use the formatting function whether on the camera or your PC.

Just try treating it as an ordinary drive.
If they don't respond to that, I would say you have a good number of bad 'sectors' on that card.
