Re: locked camerqa

Is the slider lock on the card in the 'locked' position?
It's easy to accidentally slide that to locked when handling the card.

Hi, My memory card is locked and I dont know how to unlock it

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.
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.

How do I unlock a new SD card?

Hold the SD card so that the contacts are on the underside and the clipped corner is at the top right.

On the left hand edge of the card is a lock switch, forward (towards the contacts) is unlocked. If it's in the locked position then slide it fully to unlocked (usually a small click when unlocked). If already in the unlocked position, slide it fully to locked and then fully back to unlocked.

If this fails, the card is a dud and needs to be exchanged.

My card is locked,can you please help me to unlock it?

There should be a sliding switch on the sd card that locks or unlocks it, or else the menu can be used to unlock or lock the card's contents.

Cannon IXUS 40.Saying, Card Locked.How do you unlock it?

In case it uses the SD card, then there is a lock feature in the card. You will need to unlock the card so that it becomes read/write enabled. In lock position, it is read only, so you can read the files from it but cannot create any more files.

Most SD cards have a switch on the edge of one side of the card. Sliding it up or down will unlock or lock the card. When the card is locked, you will not be able to transfer any audio tracks. Nor will you be able to play any copy protected files. We recommend you always keep the card unlocked.

When i put the memory card in the camera, it comes accross the screen that the card is locked. How do i unlock it and how did i lock it in the first place?


To remove the write protect lock, take the memory card out of the camera, face the card towards you, look for a small white tab on the left hand side of the card, to unlock it push the tab up to unlock it, it will be at the side of the card like this 59a6de4.jpg .

If the lock is in the off position then the card maybe faulty.

Card locked ? how to unlock it ?

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.

The memory card is locked

If you are using an SD or MMC card, check if the lock button (on the side of the card - a tiny plastic that you can slide) is on the LOCK position. Slide it to UNLOCK position. If it's already in UNLOCK position, slide it to LOCK , then UNLOCK position.

Good luck and have a nice day!
