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.

Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Menu button - right arrow to Setup- Select Format - You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect message and the card can be used again.

SOURCE: Camera says SD Card is locked but card is open;

First I know you've said you've checked the card's slide switch, but just want to restate this first for others with the same problem who may not know of this switch.

Check to make sure that you didn't accidentally place the tiny locking slide switch on the side of your SD card in the "locked" downward position. The correct "unlocked" position should be slid up toward the direction of the connectors.

If you've tried this, and it's still showing locked, it's likely that the locking switch inside the camera's card slot is stuck. If you look inside the slot on the side of the slot where the SD card slide switch would be, you'll see a glint of gold color on the side. This is the camera's lock/unlock switch. The other glint's of gold that you may see at the far end of the slot are the reader's connectors (ignore those).

Somehow, the locking switch is making contact and has become stuck in the locked position. With a plastic toothpick, or other skinny NON-METALLIC item, tap against this switch to see if you can jar open the contact to its normal unlocked position. Also try blowing compressed air at it, as some gunk may have worked its way in there, jamming it closed. Occasionally, reinsert the SD card to see if the issue has been corrected.

If repeated tries fail, it may be time to consider opening the camera to force open this switch (not recommended unless you have some familiarity with electronics). In this case please see the following (xscrewdriver, hope you don't mind me referencing your blog):

SOURCE: Canon a590 Card (not really) Locked

Remove the SD card from the camera. Slide the tiny switch on the side of the card to its other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card in the camera. But if you've already tried this, see this link for additional things that you can try.

SOURCE: card write protected

Check if the card is truly write protected (check the little slider on the SD card). Its possible it slid into lock position accidentally

Does the card contain pictures shot on another camera? If so, that could be your problem. Download those and format the card in your camera.

L can not copy anything to SD card it says remove writer protection


Take your memory card out of the camera and switch the position of the "lock" tab. One position is for "locked" (i.e., "Write Protected") and the other position will allow the card to be written to (unlocked). Some cameras have image protection built into the on-camera software and you may need to configure this there.

Card cannot create folder


Make sure that the card is not "write protected" or "locked". This is determined by the position of the tab on the long-edge on the left side of the card as shown below:
a4a10506-8ede-4f1a-9769-d26b46c8079e.jpg
Make sure the tab is positioned as shown in the image - not back in the direction of the "LOCK" arrow.
If it still will not work, try formating in a card reader attached to your computer. This will ERASE all content on the card. Then reinsert into camera and reformat once more. You should be ready to take pictures again.

Are you getting an error message or any other indication from the camera? Have you checked the memory card to see whether it's write-protected? What exposure mode(s)? What shutter release mode(s)?

Can't open my canon camera, says Card Locked.


SD cards have a small switch on one side that can get slid to a "locked" position, which will prevent the card from being erased. Just slide it back to the other position. It may have a padlock symbol on it right next to the switch.
