There is a piece on the side of the card that slides up and down. Try sliding it back the other direction.

SD card can't be read "Card Locked" is all that


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

Reads Card locked when trying to delete pix from mmemory card


SD/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.

The card is locked


Hi!
Check the lock switch on the SD card. If it's off then it's probably a broken switch inside the camera memory card readed. The memory card readers in cameras have a small switch that detects if the SD card LOCK switch is on. This is a hardware problem, you should give it for a repair - it's not a hard repair - I usually cut off the switch and put a wire accross so the camera allways thinks that the card is not locked.

Hope this helps!

Camera reading memory card error, cannot get it to work. Tried removeing the card and replacing batteries. Checked and it is not locked.


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.

Says card is locked but it is not


If there are any pictures on the card, I would back them up onto a PC and then try formatting the card in your camera to see if that helps. You should be able to read off the card even though your camera wonlt write to it.

Canon power shot sx 100 reads card locked


SD Memory cards have a tiny switch on the edge that marks the memory card as read only and prevents any writes. If you get the message "Card locked!" when you turn the camera on then turn the camera off, eject the SD card. With the card facing you (metal contacts facing away) the switch is on the left hand edge, slide towards the top of the card to make the card read/write again.

CARD IS LOCKED ON MY CANON POWERSHOT A420


I have a Canon A650 that was displaying a "card locked!" message. First, take out the card and check small the lock tab on the side of the card itself. Then, try a different SD card in the same camera. I tried an old 256 MB card from an older camera. I still got the "card locked" message. When I put the 1 GB card I was struggling with in my old Nikon, it read fine. So at this point I knew it was my camera and not the card. What finally worked for me was very gently pressing down on the metal flap inside the card chamber that detects the lock with the tip of a straightened paperclip. Hope this helps.

Canon Camera - Memory Card error & Card locked error


Try reading the card independent of a camera i.e. on a computer or a photo kiosk to determine if the card is readable damaged
