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.

All these answers are correct but if the white plastic slider gets knocked off or is missing the card reverts to locked.solution find similar card and swop the white slider to gain access to card contents.

Take the card out. On the left side of the card is a tiny white switch. Reverse the position.

SOURCE: memory card

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.

SOURCE: CARD LOCKED

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.

MEMORY CARD LOCKED SIGN COME UP UNABLE TO TAKE PHOTOS, HOW DO I UNLOCK THE MEMORY CARD?


Hello Carol,

If it is a SD or SDHC card you can see a little sliding switch on the left hand side of the card on the label side.
When this is slid down it locks the card.
Push it back up to unlock the card.

Hope this help.

It says card locked, I figured it out!!!!


As mentioned above, I took the card out of the camera and found that there was a little yellow tab that needed to be moved to unlock the card....very simple, like the old cassettes, Videotapes or floppy discs. Just posting the question opened my eyes!!!

There is alittle slide on the memory card.
Take it out. Look for it. Depending what you have it may be yellow, look on the left. If it's down, slide up and it will be unlocked. :)

Card locked canon powershot sd750


Check the switch on the side of your SD memory card. It is a small sliding switch which has a lock position. Sounds like the switch is in the "locked" position. Unlock, reload card, & you should be good to go. If not, the card is probably damaged.
