On the side of the SD memory card there is a little slide. It should be in the up position (nearest thew top) . You can look on page 161 of the manual that came with your camera also.

After locking memory card, do I then unlock it to take pictures and will that then erase the memory card or can you tell me how to so


Locking the memory card prevents you from taking and adding photos to the memory card. It also prevents you from deleting photos from the memory card.
If you want to erase all the photos off the memory card. unlock the memory card, go to the camera's Menu and scroll through the settings ti Format the memory card, then format 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.


For non-SD cards: Format the card

The data on the memory card may be corrupted.

WARNING: Formatting will delete all the files in the device. Backup all your data before formatting.

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 .
