Re: my SanDisk will not unlock

Unfortunutly this happens sometimes with all Flash bases memory cards.

if the computer won't read the card anymore, try formatting the memory card. Unfortunutly you will loose your pictures that were on the card, but that should get the card back working so you can continue using it.

My memory card is locked am not given lock number how to remove lock 2gb micro

Look closely at the memory card itself. There should be a tiny picture of a lock indicator on the card and a little tab to click or move to the lock position. There should also be a picture of an unlocked lock to signify which direction you need to move that little tab in order to unlock the memory card. Try sliding it to the unlock position to solve your issue.

I have a Sandisk memory card, and everyone I try to take a picture or delete a picture from the camera itself or on the computer, it wouldn't allow me. This has been happening for over 2 months now and...

Try the locking mechanism on the side. It can lock sometimes if it is loose,as you put it into the slot. If necessary tape it in unlocked mode. It (the switch) will appear on the upper left hand corner of the SD card or micro SD adapter.

My sandisk memory stick pro duo has shown up file error in my pictures so when i go to transfer them on to my computer it can't get past the error how do i solve this?

Without knowing what the specific error is this is my best guess:

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.

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.
