Go into the menu and scroll to "format" and follow the on-screen instructions. This will erase and initialize the card.

How do u fix the camera that keeps saying locked card and its not the memory card


Not sure why you are saying it's not the memory card or is it because you are working on the camera internal memory? If so the camera internal memory still needs to be formatted or initialized to properly work with the camera. I'm going to include two diagrams on a memory card that your camera will use first is the Card Lock. This is an actual lock on the side of the memory card and if in the incorrect orientation will prevent formatting all new card must be formatted to the camera they are being used in. You can't format the card in the computer and expect it to work in the camera it won't happen. You can't format the card in one camera and place it in another even the same make and model and expect to work.
Here is the first picture/diagram of the card lock

The second diagram is right out of your owners manual showing how to format/initialize your memory card

Every time i try to take a picture my camera is saying my memory card is full and it's a new 8GB card. it's saying my internal card is full. i have 15 pictures on the 8GB i don't want to delete. i have not...


The camera is actually saying that the internal memory of the camera (which is very small) is full, not your card. Here's what to do....with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"(may be called "initialize") and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Once that's done, your card should work properly.

Screen reading memory card not initialized


It sounds like your XD card is corrupted. How and why i couldn't tell you. You will need to get the pictures recovered from the card using a special software (image recovery software, can down load for free from some web sites, or some companies can try and do it for you) and then try and format the card in the camera. DO NOT FORMAT THE CARD BEFORE YOU RETRIVE YOUR IMAGES. If you do all traces of the images may be lost.

All the best and happy snapping.

Card not Initialized


Can you get into your camera's menus? If you can, there should be an Option under your Setup menu to Reformat card that might fix the problem. This happens sometimes with the memory cards, they just need to be reset. Unfortunately you can lose your photos sometimes when it happens, so if it's happening a lot you should buy a new memory card.
