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.

Check the switch on the side of your SD memory card. It is a small sliding switch which has a lock position. Sounds like the switch is in the "locked" position. Unlock, reload card, & you should be good to go. If not, the card is probably damaged.

SOURCE: "Card Locked" error is false!

Remove card from SD600 camera. Locate sliding switch on side of SD card and move from lock to other (unlocked) position. That ought to do it. Compact flash card is another issue.

Remove the SD card and look for the little sliding switch on the left side of the card (it's very tiny). If this switch is shown in the "Lock" position, slide it to the other unlocked position. If this switch is already in the unlocked position, slide it to locked and then back to unlocked one time. Reinsert the card and try it out in the camera.

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

My memory card is write protected. when i turn on camera the screen is saying it is write protected, i can't take pictures or delete pictures


Hi. Thanks for your question.


SOLUTION 1 - Unlock the memory card.

There is a Lock switch on the left side of the SD card. Make sure the Lock switch is slid up (unlock position). You will not be able to modify or delete the contents on the memory card if it is locked.

NOTE: If you are using a microSD/microSDHC card or a miniSD/miniSDHC card, insert the card into the standard SD adapter.


SOLUTION 2 - Toggle the lock switch.

If the lock switch is not on lock:
1. Slide the switch up and down. Repeat this 3 times.
2. Let it stay on the Lock position for 30 seconds.
3. Slide the switch up to unlock the card.
4. Try to transfer files into the device.
