Look at your memory card. 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.

SOURCE: Memory card locked

I noticed that this camera does not work well with cheaper memory cards. The only brand that works without fail is the SanDisk brand.

SOURCE: card locked

Card lock means that someone switched the little gray sliding lock on the memory card. It prevents the camera from saving new pictures to AND copying pictures from the card. All you have to do is take the card out and slide the little gray slider back into the unlocked position. Take the card out of the camera. On the side of it is a little 'switch'. Flip the switch in the opposite 'unlock' position
1)check the card to make sure the write protect switch isn't on the wrong setting. It's on the side of the Secure Digital card (not memory stick).

2) I hope you're not buying Memory Stick. That's for Sony. You should be buying support digital.

3) Check the card contacts--if the card isn't making good contact in-camera, you'll get hold of card errors. This happens when someone touches the contacts on the card. Usually cleaning will work unless something sticky get on it. Most memory cards do have exposed contacts, so you enjoy to be careful when handling them ...

4) Format the card in the camera if you grasp an error message. It may just entail to be formatted.Your battery is always drain quickly, that’s symptom of the battery near to run out.,it’s better to change it, your owner's manual say that Lithium AA's will work well and later almost as long.

Hope this may help….

Hope this may help;

SOURCE: my camera keeps saying card locked and its not

Okey, this can be tricky, but it worked for me.

I have Canon Ixus 60 and Kingston SD 1gb memory card.
After loading set of images on my laptop and putting the card back in to camera, screen displayed "Card Locked!" message.

I did everything to check the common flaws, but still the same message occured.

Material needed:
1 paper clip

The socket for memory card has this tiny detector for sensoring if the card is locked or not (same side as the lock switch on the MC). For some reason it was sticking out from the side. So, little fiddling with paper clip to put the detector back in and another try to put the camera on, everything worked out just fine.

My nikon coolpix s4000 can't read the memory card. Why

Remove the memory card and you will find a switch on the left side of the card. It must be locked, so slide or push the lock on other side to open it and then insert the card back to the Camera.

Your problem carries all the hallmarks of "your card isn't fast enough". Check your manual to see what speed of card is required for HD video. If it doesn't say, try a card that says as least "Class 10" or "10Mb/s" or "66x". If you set the movie resolution down to 640x480 it has a better chance of working

Keep us updated.

Keeps saying card is locked


OK, if your camera keeps saying that the card is locked, you need to take your memory card from the camera.
The card should look something like this. Have a look at the lever on the card, which will lock or unlock the memory card for use.


Now, just slide the switch to the other end to unock your card.

Let me know if you need any further assistance.

Kind regards
