Make sure the slide switch on the side of the card is in the unlocked position. Then, format the card in the camera to optimize it.

Hi!
Does it work with other cards? There's a small switch on the memory card reader inside the camera which tells the camera that the card is locked. Most likely this switch is broken. You can try to point it with needle or something but I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair to a local repair shop or Canon service center.

I just bought a new sandisk 4GB card for my p880 kodak. Wnen inserted the new card camera screen says card is unusable, insert new card. I have followed instructions for formatting on my PC, but still get...


The P880 works with MMC and SD cards. Your new 4GB card is an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. The camera is limited to working with cards 2GB and smaller.

When i insert sandisk 2gb SD memory card(new one) to my phone,it is displaying that the memory card is password protected..how to unlock it?


Are you sure its asking for a password or is it saying the card is locked. I think the card is locked, look at the card closely either on the front or the back of it there will be a small black square that can be moved either up or down or left or right. Slide that square over to unlock the disk and you should be able to use it now.

I hope this helps you out and if it does please leave me some positive feedback.

I have a SanDisk UltraII and the card is write protected (not locked). I tried to erase using the disk utility on my MAC but it wont let me. How can I get rid of the write protection? Thanks in advance...


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."

Memory card Sandisk 4GB gives error memory card


The S50 uses SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card, and will not work in the S50. You will have to confine your choices to cards 2GB and smaller.

I have a Pentax Optio A20. I currently user an Sandisc Ultra II 1.0 GB card. I can't find those cards anymore. I'm not sure if the camera will support a SanDisk 4GB UltraII SDHC Card or a SanDisk 2GB...


It will take a 2 GB card, I am using one now.
I can't tell you about a 4GB card, but that's a LOT of storage, so you probably don't really need a 4GB card anyhow???

Memory card locked


On your SD card, there is a small tab near the top (similar to floppy a disks), just switch that the other way it should fix that lock error.

Yes it sounds like the disk is defective and I have seen these bad so its definitely the most likely possibility. Sounds like the switch itself to unlock it is bad. Good luck and thanks for using fixya, please take a moment to rate my solution I hope you fin it fixya appropriate.

My Nikon Coolpix 2100 Lexar starter memory card has become unreadable


It sounds like your Dazzle is not compatible with the sandisk. Maybe the Sandisk CF UltraII card have a new update software in it.

Locked memory card


I guess it is a simple switch problem..

try to switching it between lock and unlock many times until it become ok again..

If it will still not unlock itself, try to format it, for some errors to erased and starts a new one.
