There is a tiny switch located on the side of the memory card, might even say lock on it or beside it. Just flick the switch opposite of the way it is now and it should work fine after that. There might even be a small arrow showing which way to switch it. The reason for the lock button is "just" for this, so you don't accidentally erase some wanted pictures or someone else.

Check the SD memory card R/W switch.
SD and Micro SD memory cards has a small slide switch on the edge of the card, which write protects data on the memory card or add photos to the SD card. Slide the switch from the LOCK position to the UNLOCK position, which is furthest away from the contacts.

Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

HP Photosmart M425, "Card Lock" message, camera


Take the memory card out of your camera. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Will a SD 2gb memory card work in my hp 620 digital camera?


Yes, any Secure Digital (SD) memory card can be put into your hp Photosmart 620 camera safely. I would not go any bigger than 4 GB due to the limitations of some computers that you may use to download and process your photographs. And, you probably will want to pull off the phototgraphs and put them onto your computer for long term storage or for printing. That camera normally makes about a 1 Mb file for a JPEG image file. It will take a long time for you to fill up a 2 GB card; around 2,000 photographs.

I put a new memory card in my camera and it Camera


Guess. the lock tab on the memory card is set wrong. Or, the card has a bad memory cell in it and the camera cannot get to the boot track of the SD card. You will need a new card!
