My memory card is locked am not given lock number how to remove lock 2gb micro


Look closely at the memory card itself. There should be a tiny picture of a lock indicator on the card and a little tab to click or move to the lock position. There should also be a picture of an unlocked lock to signify which direction you need to move that little tab in order to unlock the memory card. Try sliding it to the unlock position to solve your issue.

Memory card error it says card is locked I slid the switch back an forth but still says memory card


I'll include a diagram of the little lock switch so you know the correct position to be able to load pictures to it. Another reason for getting the card locked error is if the memory card hasn't been formatted in the camera it's being used in. Formatting is necessary after downloading pictures to the computer as well.

Check the little white tab on the side of the SD memory card to be sure it doesn't say "locked". If the tab is in the right position the camera will have to be repaired.
