    I have the same problem, and it doesn't help unlocking the "memorycard itself" not even if I change to another card

Most cards have a small pice of plastic on the end that allows you to lock/unlock. Pull the card out and slide to the unlocked position.

When I try to take a picture it says card locked. One disk works fine - other disk CVS SDHC gives me this message


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

SOLUTION 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.



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.

I have the samsung s630 and i have taken some pictures on it before i got a memory card. i want to save them to my memory card, but when i insert the memory card those photos wont show up. how do i get...


If you remove the card from the camera and connect the camera to your computer with the USB lead, you should see the camera's internal memory as a disk drive on the computer. If there is a memory card inserted, you will see that memory instead.

Unlocking individual pictures is done with the same function that locked them. It is probably on a menu available when you are viewing the pictures on the camera.

Memory card locked


Sounds like the 'lock' tab on the memory card has been moved to the 'safety' to prevent you from re-writing your card accidentally

Fix it by:
1 remove memory card from camera
2 look for the very little tab/switch on the front of the card
3 slide it to the unlocked position (opposite of now)
4 put it back into camera...should now allow you to take pictures

if the tab/switch is missing do not dispair...
-use a small piece of clear tape to cover this 'tab/switch' opening

-this is the same concept as cassette/vhs/ 5 1/4" floppies...removing the 'tab' to lock it

Memory card locked!


There is alittle slide on the memory card.
Take it out. Look for it. Depending what you have it may be yellow, look on the left. If it's down, slide up and it will be unlocked. :)
