    That switch is on the unlock position.
    why need to tape it? I don't understand.

  • chiao Sep 06, 2007

    Yes, I taped it, and it still locked on me.
    I tried to insert other cards to my camera and PC, and card reader. And they are all OK to read. I am very sorry and I thank you very much.

    I have a Nikon D40xi camera with an 18-135 lens. I have had it for some months and it has worked fine. Today, I tried to remove the memory card and it wold not come out no matter what I did. I pushed, prodded, cussed and it still there. What do I do now please? I am at my wits end. I want to print the photos that are on it. Just a 94 year old picture taker.

    I have now tried 2 different cards, from 2 different makers, but both said that the card was locked even when the thing is in the unlocked stage. It will not let me formatt or take any pics at this stage. Both cards when placed in another machine read fine and working. What is the deal?

Try placing a small piece of tape over the switch area as in the attached picture. Make sure you don't cover the contacts! Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

    The "switch" on these cards is only a mechanical device and has no effect on the card itself it is read by the camera or whatever device it is put in.
    They are often loose or broken and can then no longer be read accurately.
    Placing tape over it gives a better chance that the camera will read it properly.

    If this doesn't fix it try another card.

How to unlock locked 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.

Display shows card locked,even with new sd card installed


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.

I have not been able to get the write protection removed even after unlocking the memory card


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.

"CARD LOCKED"-just downloaded pictures from memory


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.

It's easy enough for the switch to get moved accidentally, especially when inserting it into a card reader or a camera.

Cannon IXUS 40.Saying, Card Locked.How do you unlock it?


In case it uses the SD card, then there is a lock feature in the card. You will need to unlock the card so that it becomes read/write enabled. In lock position, it is read only, so you can read the files from it but cannot create any more files.

Most SD cards have a switch on the edge of one side of the card. Sliding it up or down will unlock or lock the card. When the card is locked, you will not be able to transfer any audio tracks. Nor will you be able to play any copy protected files. We recommend you always keep the card unlocked.
sd%20card%20lock%20slider.jpgNOTE: We have found that on some cards, if the slider is even halfway towards the lock position, the card will be locked. Make sure that the slider is all the way to the UN-locked position.

Digital camera says sim card locked


If this is an SD card you may need to take out the card and slide the small switch on the card itself to the "Unlock Position"

Good Luck!

Card Locked


If the card is locked, you could the steps below:

- Turn off camera
- Remove memory card
- Take a look on the switch of the memory card itself
* If it's at the TOP = card is UNLOCKED
* If it's at the BOTTOM = card is LOCKED

- So, you just have to make sure that the switch is at the top
for the memory card to be UNLOCKED

After doing that, you just have to put back the memory card to your camera and turn on the camera. Try to check if this works.
