Look at your memory card. 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.

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.

SOURCE: I cannot take any pictures, beacause the camera

There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link. The most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Other causes include having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position, or problems the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card).

SOURCE: need make model of sd

It is compatible with any brand of SD card up to 1 Gb size. To look at the brand/model of your SD card, open your camera, remove the SD card and check the labels. It doesn't have it's own brand of SD card, so depending where you bought it, the store can just put any brand of SD card into it.

I recommend you move the switch on the SD card back and forth several times. Occasionally, they do not make good contact, and this will hopefully wipe any impurities off the connections.

If this does not help, try a different SD card. Fortunately, they are not too expensive these days, and you can often find sales for a 4 gigabyte card for $10 or less.

If that doesn't help, the problem is in the camera. If it is no longer under warranty, you may have to get it professionally repaired. Depending on how much you paid for the camera, it may not be worth it, however. Be sure to get an estimate of the repair cost before agreeing to have it done.

Good luck!

I have an vivitar vivicam s128 when I put my sd card in it says card protected what can I do


Sure you did not lock the card? The little notch should be in the up position as in the picture. Then the manual says you can use SD cards up to 32 Gbyte, but I can't find anything about the cameras compatibility with SDHC cards. So try the camera with a SD card. The used to make SD cards up to 4 Gbyte, but today, even 1 Gbyte cards are SDHC.
1- check Lock
2- Use SD card to see if your camera works with that.

See a 4GB card, only SD, but not for sale anymore.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

Protected feature


There are 2 probable solutions. 1. The images are "protected" by the camera & will show "locked" when you try to erase them. 2. The SD card in the camera is locked. The solution to 1 is to unlock the images in the playback menu. See page 46 of the manual. Note that you need to select "unlock" you can't select protect as they are already protected! Solution 2 is to remove the card from the camera & check the "lock" slider that you can see on the side (although no all cards have this). Set the lock off. You can download the manual from the first link on the following page: http://www.vivitar.com/manuals/english/ViviCam6300/CameraManual.pdf Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
