If the memory card truly is bad, then download any pictures on it to your computer. A locked memory card simply prevents writing to it, it doesn't affect reading it. Then get a new card and throw the old one away. It's just not worth trying to fix a bad memory card.

Memory card is locked


Hi,

what kind of Memory card is that SD/Micro SD? or what so ever, normally all MMC have lock option on it, try following these steps:

  • take out the memory card look on the left hand side of it and it might say in little letters lock and there's a little thing that moves up and down and then move it up.
  • The switch / notch works in same way as the notches on compact audio cassettes and videotape cassette tapes or floppy disks. A closed or covered notch is writable, while an open notch (or removed tab) is protected.If the switch becomes broken or falls off then the card will become a write-protected ROM card and no longer be writable. A possible troubleshooting solution would be to apply tape over the notched area (avoiding the connectors and the other notch) to configure the card in a permanent writable state."

Memory card error it says card is locked I slid the switch back an forth but still says memory card


I'll include a diagram of the little lock switch so you know the correct position to be able to load pictures to it. Another reason for getting the card locked error is if the memory card hasn't been formatted in the camera it's being used in. Formatting is necessary after downloading pictures to the computer as well.

Locked card


Hello

Ok, here is something you can try:

In your case the problem is not with the card but rather with your camera's card reader. This is a rather hard problem to fix yourself but here is what you can do.

Open the card slot of your camera and peer inside with a sharp light or torch. You should see a little metal tab or switch inside the card slot. This is the write protection switch. Contrary to popular belief , the switch on the card does not impact the operation of the card itself but rather tells the camera that the card should be locked by depressing the little pin inside.

If you put a protected card into a camera with no protection switch , the card would operate normally.

However , with time and repeated use , the switch will start to bend slightly until it will no longer depress when a unlocked card is inserted.

With a toothpick or needle , slightly and very gently push this tab up a little bit. (some camera's will require you to pull the tab down), This will allow the switch to operate once again and should solve your problem.

Kind Regards
Andrea

I borrowed my sister in laws samsung i70 now it is saying the card is locked & wont function how can i unlock it?


Shut the camera power off, and remove the memory card.

Observe the label side of the card and find a small plastic tab on the left edge of the card. Slide the tab forward (towards the connector end) into the "Unlocked" position.

*Carefully* reinsert the card into the camera - taking extra care to slide it straight in - so that the tab is not bumped back to the "Locked" position.

Power up and and take pictures.

If it doesn't work - it is possible that the tab got moved during the reinsertion process. Remove the card again, and place a *small* amount of scotch tape over the tab to keep it from moving, and try again.

Good luck!

My camera is locking my memory card. I slide the lever on the memory card to unlocked, which is down, and when i insert it in the phone and push it down to lock it in, it pushes the 'lock' on the memory...


I have had a similar problem with flimsy lock tabs. I solved it by placing a small amount of scotch tape over the tab - starting near the connection pads, over the tab to the back edge of the card. There's usually not a whole lot of extra room in the slot, so insert carefully and remove portions of tape as needed.

Worst case scenario - if you never use the locking tab (I never do) you could place a small dab of super glue to hold it in place. Let it "set up" before reinserting - you don't want the tab to move an be held on the lock position.

-likely the 'lock' tab on the memory card has been moved....a safety to prevent you from re-writing your card

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

if the tab/switch is missing do not dispair..
1 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

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

Memory card is write protected


thought the cards have a little tab on them so they can be "write protected" it is a little plastic tab on the side of the memory1.gif card you slide up and down. I know most SD cards1.gif have it, CF cards dont so if its anything besides SD memory its probobly the memory card or some little switch or somthing in the camera that tells the camera when the card is in the "Locked" or "Write protected" mode.

Looking at my SD memory cards1.gif they have a little arrow on the edge and they say "Lock" pointing down, the slider is up. Move yours both ways, maybe it has a bad connection in the card (im not sure what it actualy does) or its in a position the camera thinks its locked?
