Hey,

I try reformatting with switch in locked and unlocked positions. I select trash can then format card. It shows an amber light as if formatting then returns No image on the card. I then try to take a photo and unit reports card full.

Any hints

If you have the HP M407, the maximum capacity sd card it can use is a 1gb. I had the same problem and a 1gb card solved the problem. Hope this helps.

Take the memory card out of the camera. Move the lock switch on the side of the card to the unlocked position if it is in the locked position. Replace the card carefully without moving that switch.The unlocked position on most SD cards puts the switch towards the end of the card that goes into the camera first.

If that doesn't help, try a different card. The card you are using may have a problem that could require formatting. Copy your photos to another drive first. (Use a drive/photo recovery program on your computer (with the card in an SD card reader). There are some that will attempt to read even a corrupted SD card.) Then reformat the card. If the card can't be reformatted, it may have failed. Check your warranty on the card and see if it will be replaced by the manufacturer.

I hope this helps.

Release Write Protection


SD and SDHC 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.

It is write protected


1.Look for a switch or button on the side of the micro SD card or adapter. It might have a lock/unlock symbol on it. 2.Move the switch to the "Unlocked" position to remove write protection. This position may also be labeled "R/W" for read/write. If you have no switch, continue to Step 3. 3.Download and install Sony EzRecover and attempt to use it to format the card (this will erase all content). If this doesn't work, try Step 4. 4.Delete and repartition the micro SD card using Windows XP. Select "Control Panel" > "Administrative Tools" > "Disk Management." Select the micro SD drive and click "Delete." Right-click on empty drive and select "New Partition."

SD card Locked


The error code 000060 means SD card locked. The switch on your card may be unattached internally. Try a different card.

I just downloaded my photos to our computer, did the safe card remooval and now I get Card Locked when I turn the camera on. We have used this same SD card for a while now with no problems.


Check to see if the lock switch is turned off on your sd card....look close on the edge..
Also, try a card reformat if your images are safely on your computer....

Card locked. Bought new card. Is in the


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):

Locked card


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

Card Locked


Hi,
If it is an SD memory card, there is a switch actually on the edge of the card. Try moving it to the other position and reinstall. Most people don't realise it's even there untill they have problems.

If this works , please rate accordingly so others may follow.

Thanks.

If it doesn't, there will be access to view the locked photo's on the camera. Selecting protect/ lock again should remove this.
