These need to be pushed in quite hard - provided you have them round the right way. Gold connectors in first, of course, but you still need to orientate the card correctly.

SOURCE: Locked card

Remove the SD card from the camera. Slide the tiny switch on the side of the card to its other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card in the camera. But if you've already tried this, see this link for additional things that you can try.

SOURCE: Memory card locked

Hello

Ok, here is something you can try:

In your case the problem is not with the card but rather with your camera's card reader. This is a rather hard problem to fix yourself but here is what you can do.

Open the card slot of your camera and peer inside with a sharp light or torch. You should see a little metal tab or switch inside the card slot. This is the write protection switch. Contrary to popular belief , the switch on the card does not impact the operation of the card itself but rather tells the camera that the card should be locked by depressing the little pin inside.

If you put a protected card into a camera with no protection switch , the card would operate normally.

However , with time and repeated use , the switch will start to bend slightly until it will no longer depress when a unlocked card is inserted.

With a toothpick or needle , slightly and very gently push this tab up a little bit. (some camera's will require you to pull the tab down), This will allow the switch to operate once again and should solve your problem.

Kind Regards
Andrea

SOURCE: SD card locked

The lock switch on the SD card looks like a bit of plastic without any electronics. A bit like the write-protect tab on a 3.5" FDD.
So there must be a sensor in the reader / camera which detects the position of the switch. Maybe there is dirt in the sensor. The best way to check would be to try another SD card, but you could try blowing out any possible dirt and see if that fixes the problem. Can the camera write to the SD card?

Try moving the switch to lock and unlock status.

Camera says card locked


SD and SDHC 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.

My new memory card is say it locked but lock on card is not locked it is a sd 4g


The A410 works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card, not an SD card, and will not work in this camera. You have to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

How do i unlock my sd card


There is a slider on the left hand side of an SD card which sets the card to Locked (lower position) or Unlocked (higher position - i.e. towards the top of the SD card). The first step is to check the position of this slider.

Note that the position of the slider does not affect the SD card in any way - it trips a switch inside the camera (or other SD reader). The slider MUST be in the upper position or the camera will say Card Locked - so if the slider has fallen off (they are very fragile!) the camera will assume it is in the Locked position.
