For the 'card locked' problem, first check yourSD card.There is a switch on the side of the card. When theswitch is on unlock position, you can format, take pictures or delete pictures.But if the switch is in the lock position, you can not do the above operations.The camera will also indicate 'card locked' error.

Samsung digimax4010 memorycard locked cant take pictures

To fix this, remove the SD card from your camera. Look on the side and you will find a little switch. One end of the switch says locked the other end says unlocked. Move the switch from locked to unlocked. Replace it in your camera and turn it back on.

My samsung l700 wont take wont let me format it or reset it. i think it was cause by me takeing the card out to uplaod them onto my ps3. Now theres a sign across the lcd saying "CARD LOCKED!"...

while taking out the card u must have moved a smal projection in one side of the memory card. this moving of that projection causes locking of memory card.
take out the card and move that projection to opposite direction adn insert it.
