For some reason the lock switch is engaged on your memory card and the card is write-protected (like the diskettes in old days). Release it and you'll be able to delete the pictures.

Says card locked when trying to take or delate a picture???

Your card is protected against deleting now... You have to get it out, just push it slightly, it will jump out of slot and then move small slider on right side of card to 'unlock' position. Put it back and enjoy.
