Question about Pentax Cameras
Card is locked and I am unable to figure out how to unlock it
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.

Here's the solution, I just had the same problem LOL!
1. take the memory card out
2.On the memory card there is a little switch (it will be the little tiny piece on the side of the card thats a different color) slide it up.

If the card is locked, you could the steps below:
- Turn off camera
- Remove memory card
- Take a look on the switch of the memory card itself
* If it's at the TOP = card is UNLOCKED
* If it's at the BOTTOM = card is LOCKED
- So, you just have to make sure that the switch is at the top
for the memory card to be UNLOCKED
After doing that, you just have to put back the memory card to your camera and turn on the camera. Try to check if this works.

There should be a small toggle along the end side (it is tiny and easily missed, but it is there, I just checked my memory card / mine is 4GB SD card from Sony) that you can swtich to unlock
and your images may come back that way.
Look for it this way, hold the card face down it should be on the back edge where you use your thumb or finger to push it into the slot on your camera.
