Try formatting the card once on a pc and then plug it in your camera....if that does not help either, you'll have to try a different card.

Sounds like there was an error while the camera was writing information to the card. You can try reformatting the card using a computer and a card reader, then replace it in the camera and format it from the menu. If that doesn't work and the camera is locked up you can try to do a "hard reset" by following the instructions on page 176 of the camera manual.

Try a memory card from a friend that has been used for a while. If it locks up with other cards then you have problem with camera. Check if needs to be set to read from memory cards above certain sizes ?

Card Locked ! Error


Remove SD card, then whilst card is removed, delete all pictures that may still be stored in cameras 'internal' memory (usually just a few) then replace SD card. Should be unlocked now?.

Memory card error


Try a smaller memory card size . I was trying to install a 4gb card and the guy at Kmart told me to try a 1gb card and that fixed the locked card error . No where in the instruction book did it address this problem.
