Take the memory card out of the camera. Move the lock switch on the side of the card to the unlocked position if it is in the locked position. Replace the card carefully without moving that switch.The unlocked position on most SD cards puts the switch towards the end of the card that goes into the camera first.

If that doesn't help, try a different card. The card you are using may have a problem that could require formatting. Copy your photos to another drive first. (Use a drive/photo recovery program on your computer (with the card in an SD card reader). There are some that will attempt to read even a corrupted SD card.) Then reformat the card. If the card can't be reformatted, it may have failed. Check your warranty on the card and see if it will be replaced by the manufacturer.

I hope this helps.

I have a card locked message


You need to unlock your card. If you take the card out of the camera you will see a little notch on one side of the card. Move the little notch and your card will be unlocked. The reason for the card being able to be locked is so that if you have important stuff on there you can lock it so nothing can be changed.

I have a message that states that my card is locked. How can I get this off?


SD memory cards have a tiny tab on one side of the card to unlock and lock the card.
If that does not work then the card may be faulty, try first removing camera batteries to reset camera, and then replace the card.

Locked memory card


Hi there,

Your camera is telling you the lock switch on the card is locked.

Take the card out of your camera and look on the side. There will be a little switch. One side of the switch says locked and the other side says unlocked. Move the switch from the locked position to the unlocked position and it will work for you.

Remove the SD card from the camera. Slide the tiny slide switch on the side of the card to the other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card in the camera. That should do it.
