"card Locked" even though it isn't

My canon elf powershot is only two months old but has been giving me problems. It always tells me my card is locked and when i take out the sd card it is NOT locked. I have tried different memory cards and it doesn't matter, the camera always says the same. How can I fix this?

Put a small piece of tape over the switch on the card and re-insert it. If the camera now functions properly, the "feeler" in the camera may be malfunctioning. Don't think the tape solution is a permanent fix....the tape will eventually come off inside the camera causing more problems.

You may be restricted to using only SD cards, and many 4gb cards are actually SBHD. My sister had this problem with her camera and by putting in a new 2 gb SD card, her camera worked fine. You may need to shop online in order to find an SD card, but they're widely available online. It costs about the same for 2 2gb cards as one 4gb even though they aren't as convenient.

I am having a similar problem. It worked fine. Took pictures in AM. By PM I received the same message. The memory card is NOT LOCKED, yet it is reported as so.

If this is occurring with multiple cards, and is also saying "card locked" even though the tiny slide switch is in the unlocked position, then see this link for a possible remedy.

4GB card incompatible?


I've come across many people who say their card isn't locked only to find that the slide switch on the side of the card is indeed in the locked position. Check yours.

"Card Locked"


Hi!
There's a small switch on the memory card reader inside the camera which detects that the card is locked. Most likely this switch is broken. You can try to point it with needle or something but I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair to a local repair shop or Canon service center.

Memory card error - can't format card


If it is an SDHC card your camera is too old to support it.  You need to get an older-style SD card.
