Remove the SD card from the camera. Slide the tiny switch on the side of the cards to their other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card in the camera. But if you've already tried this, see this link for additional things that you can try.

Needs to remove write protection


On the memory card adapter there is this a lock that pulls up and down to lock and unlock the adapter once SD card is inserted in the adapter, when you insert the adapter into the P.C make sure the lock is on unlock and then insert it to computer and the write protection will be off. do that again when you want to insert your into the computer again.

My micro sd card lock how can unlock micro sd card


Locked Memory card.
Note:- Locking of memory card is a RANDOM process.(means it gets locked on its(memory card) "OWN')
1.Whenever a card gets locked,its mainly due to the following reasons.
(I)When you insert it into a uncompatible mode.
(II) when some unsupporte files are placed.
(III)When its for specific mobile.
100% working solution for LOCKED MEMORY CARD is :-
1.Use Unlocker(its like a pendrive device with 9V battery ),and its IC is programmed in such a way that it tests every possile code.
2.The one that sets mades the memory card Unlock.
3.BUT you cant know what the CODE was.
4. Data can NEVER be retraced.

Noye :-Buy an Unlocker available @ Rs.200.But you may not get the same problem often so take it to the retailer it will costaround Rs.20 for unlocking .

The memory was lock. but i want to unlock it


id1102_e3sdhc.gifSOLUTION 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.

NOTE: If you are using a microSD/microSDHC card or a miniSD/miniSDHC card, insert the card into the standard SD adapter.


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.

My memory card is locked


Good day!

Locked..You mean write protected?I think there are instructions on how to unlock it.

Anyway, Try this:

There is a slide unlock/lock switch in the side of SD card. Its up and down switch that on and lock the card.

If you're using a mini card try to insert it to standard SD adapter.\

regards,

Mastergani

A standard "unlock code" for memory cards would be something simple like 0000.

Memory card


If the card is locked, you could the steps below:

- Turn off camera
- Remove memory card
- Take a look on the switch of the memory card itself
* If it's at the TOP = card is UNLOCKED
* If it's at the BOTTOM = card is LOCKED

- So, you just have to make sure that the switch is at the top
for the memory card to be UNLOCKED

After doing that, you just have to put back the memory card to your camera and turn on the camera. Try to check if this works.
