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.

When i turn on my DSC-W310 camera it says memory card is locked. So I cannot take pictures or find a way to unlock the memory card. what i do?pls explain with pictures


If the memory card is a SD memory card then
SD and Mini SD memory cards has a small slide switch on the edge of the card, which write protects data on the memory card or add photos to the SD card. Slide the switch from the LOCK position to the UNLOCK position, which is furthest away from the contacts.

How to Unlock SD Card


<p>Many times people do not realize that a <span style="font-weight: bold;">SD card</span> can be <span style="font-weight: bold;">write protected </span>or locked. They will <span style="font-weight: bold;">try to download pictures</span> or <span style="font-weight: bold;">make changes to the pictures </span>and the <span style="font-weight: bold;">SD card will not allow</span> them to do it. The little lock feature on the side of the card will <span style="font-weight: bold;">write protect the SD card</span> so that changes cannot be made. You will need to <span style="font-weight: bold;">unlock the SD card</span> to be able to make the changes that you want to make or download anything from it.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p><span style="font-weight: bold;">To allow the SD card to be accessed</span> is a simple as sliding a small tab on the side of the card to the <span style="font-weight: bold;">unlocked position</span>. Usually this means sliding the tab towards the back of the card and away from the front of the card. The card will have to be removed from the <span style="font-weight: bold;">camera</span> or <span style="font-weight: bold;">PC</span> to be able to do this.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>Here is a <span style="font-weight: bold;">picture of an SD Card</span> and you can see the tab on the side of the card. It clearly shows you what is the locked and unlocked positions on the card.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p><img src="heatman101_2.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>This feature can be very useful to make sure that you do not inadvertently <span style="font-weight: bold;">erase data or pictures</span> from the card. If you have children viewing pictures on the SD Card make sure to lock it before allowing them to play around to make sure that they <span style="font-weight: bold;">do not erase your pictures</span>.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>As you can see this is a very good feature to have and it will be very useful to you, but you do need to remember to unlock it before trying to make changes to the card.<br />

When i turn on the camera it says xD Write Protect.


It can be that if you have a SD card in it you might have somehow clicked the protect small lever. if so take out the SD card and check the sides of it and see if you find a small square like lever then try sliding it up or down however it will go. My SD card has it and when I sometimes put my camera away I slide it to write protect mode so that if my kids somehow get a hold of my camera and play with it they wont erase my pictures. Then when I need to use it I slide it back to unprotected mode. Hope that is your problem.

Most SD cards have a little plastic switch, However if you using a SD adapter it might not be fully reading the adapter witch causes this error or the camera is defective.

So if at one point things where hunky Dory and now its saying this try another memory card and if that does not work then the camera is the issue.

There should not be anything to install when inserting an SD card, all you do is put the card in the card slot. If you tell it to format you have to go into the menu first and tell the camera which you are referring to the card or the harddrive. If you didnt change the setting to SD card when you did give it the format command than that is why your data was lost. If you are having an SD card error make sure that the little slide switch on the card is set as not to protect the card that will give the error sometimes. I hope this helps

Error on formating new memory card in camera error says memory card is full brand new card i tried 2 in faact same error kodak c310


The lever on your SD card might be turned the wrong way so the SD card is reading protective.
Please turn the lever and try again.

The SD card might not be supported by the model: Your camera Memory card support is SD/MMC up to 2 Gigabyte and SDHC up to 8 Gigabyte

The SD card might not be faulty, try another card, since the camera could give you a message like the one you're experiencing.
Try with a different SD card that is supported by the camera.

    The SD card has a small "lock" slide switch on its side. Simply slide it away from the contacts edge.
