Canon XSi tells card write protected but card is unlocked

Camera was working fine last night. When turned on this morning the camera's LCD displayed Card Write protected. I took the sd card out and it was NOT on lock. put it back in and attempted to take a shot and it displayed again. I tried a different SD card and it displayed the same error. I tried reformatting both of the cards and then attempted to shoot with both cards and again it displayed that there was a card write protected. I assumed that it was the cards, but wanted to be sure so i took both cards out and put them in my friend's nikon D80 and they both worked fine. I put my cards that i thought were giving me the error into his D80 and it too worked fine. I put his card into my Canon XSI and it displayed the same error. Last thing i tried was resetting all settings back to normal and then shooting. Again.. Same error. Please advise. card is not locked but still the camera says is a protected memory card... please help

Every time I turn on camera,it displays CARD LOCK? and will not work


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.

Canon powershot sd 1000, memory card not detected


Hi,

Please try to copy all the contents of your SD card to your computer. Then format the SD card and try it again on your camera.

If it still can't be detected, try another SD card.

When I turn on my camera to shot a picture, it will not let me. Instead a screen pops up that says "card write protected." What does this mean?

If this doesn't do it, try a different card.

Most probably the problem is in SD card. Please try a different card to check. Also perform scandisk on this SD card to check for errors.
