My camera keeps saying "card locked". It will not let me take any pictures, unless I put in my other memory card. But this particular card is not full.

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

I can not take pictures. It keeps saying my card is locked

Try the side of the card and check to see if the small slider is slid to the "lock" position. If not, you may have to reformat the card...if you have pics on it, it will delete them, but it should solve the problem.

there is a small sliding piece of plastic on the side of the memory card that locks and unlocks your card. Just slide that to the other side and it should work just fine. It's like a "hold" button on an mp3 player
