Re: Card locked

If you have a memory card in it just take it out and on the left side there should be a little bar that you can move up and down and on the side of it it should say lock. Just move the bar one the opposite side of it and your problem should be solved.

I have a exilim 7.2 mega pixels 3x digital and have a message "the card is locked". How do I unlock it?

If the card has a slide switch on the side, move it to the unlocked position.

Whenever i insert the 4 GB SDHC memory card into my Exilim casino digital camera(12.1 mega pixels), nothing appears on the screen and it wont work. Why? It wasn't like this before :/

First, check try the card in another device, does it work, if no, the card has possibly failed, if yes check your user guide, make sure this camera can accommodate a 4gb SDHC card, if yes, check 2/3s up the left hand side of the card, is there a sliding notch offering a choice of lock and open, unlock the card.

Card is locked on casio exilim 8.1 mega pixels camera

Look at your memory card. 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.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

The camera says in the screen that the card is locked The memory card is locked and I cant figure out how to un lock it is in the set up or what do I do ? my camera is EXILIM 8.1 Mega Pixels

I've never fiddled with this brand of camera, but there will be the option to lock the pictures in the menu. In your manual, look for "memory", "locking your pictures", things like that. Also, some memory cards have a plastic tab that slides to lock the card- make sure that isn't in the lock position, if your card has one. Good luck, and hope this helps.

Memory card

If you go into the menu you will run across an option saying " Format "This will remove all pictures off your card if you have one inserted or it will give you a " format Internal memory " option this will erase the contents on your camera's memory. If you can connect it to the computer you can also right click on the device in my computer and go to format. You can usually remove and copy pictures individually through both the computers right click menu or in the camera by entering preview mode and entering the preview mode menu for more options about that file or multiple files.
