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

How to Unlock SD Card


<p>Many times people do not realize that a <span style="font-weight: bold;">SD card</span> can be <span style="font-weight: bold;">write protected </span>or locked. They will <span style="font-weight: bold;">try to download pictures</span> or <span style="font-weight: bold;">make changes to the pictures </span>and the <span style="font-weight: bold;">SD card will not allow</span> them to do it. The little lock feature on the side of the card will <span style="font-weight: bold;">write protect the SD card</span> so that changes cannot be made. You will need to <span style="font-weight: bold;">unlock the SD card</span> to be able to make the changes that you want to make or download anything from it.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p><span style="font-weight: bold;">To allow the SD card to be accessed</span> is a simple as sliding a small tab on the side of the card to the <span style="font-weight: bold;">unlocked position</span>. Usually this means sliding the tab towards the back of the card and away from the front of the card. The card will have to be removed from the <span style="font-weight: bold;">camera</span> or <span style="font-weight: bold;">PC</span> to be able to do this.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>Here is a <span style="font-weight: bold;">picture of an SD Card</span> and you can see the tab on the side of the card. It clearly shows you what is the locked and unlocked positions on the card.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p><img src="heatman101_2.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>This feature can be very useful to make sure that you do not inadvertently <span style="font-weight: bold;">erase data or pictures</span> from the card. If you have children viewing pictures on the SD Card make sure to lock it before allowing them to play around to make sure that they <span style="font-weight: bold;">do not erase your pictures</span>.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>As you can see this is a very good feature to have and it will be very useful to you, but you do need to remember to unlock it before trying to make changes to the card.<br />

I removed my SD card without turning the power off and now I can't read the card. Can the images be recovered?


Dont worry, a good SD card recovery program can help you. you can recover your images from SD card with asoftech photo recovery program.You can see
http://www.asoftech.com/apr/
It tells the steps how to perform picture recovery.

If above does not work, you may have to format the memory card (use quick format), and then use above mentioned software to scan again the memory card and recover your files.

SD card suddenly says write protected; wasn't before - how do I fix?


Your SD card is locked meaning is write protected. To unlock it you need to slide the small plastic toggle out of the 'lock' position. See image below

Can't take Picture


Some SD Cards have a physical lock on the side of the Card. Try taking the card out of the camera and look for a small white piece of plastic that you can slide on the side of the card. You may need to slide it to the unlocked position for the camera to be able to write to the card.

Card Locked


Hi,
If it is an SD memory card, there is a switch actually on the edge of the card. Try moving it to the other position and reinstall. Most people don't realise it's even there untill they have problems.

If this works , please rate accordingly so others may follow.

Thanks.

If it doesn't, there will be access to view the locked photo's on the camera. Selecting protect/ lock again should remove this.

Memory Card Error


The SD card has a lock switch to prevent existing data from being erased. To record images or movies this switch must be in the normal (non lock) position. Different brands of SD memory cards may identify this switch differently. Regardless the procedure should be the same. Try removing the card from the camera and be sure that the switch is not in the locked position.

Card locked means that the tab on the edge of the SD card has been moved to the "locked" position. This prevents deleting or overwriting anything that is on the card, and also prevents any more images being added to the card. Move the little tab to the "unlocked" position.
