Little sliding switch on the side of the SD memory card. Remove from camera, slide switch away from lock position, re-install and you should be good to go.

Try a smaller memory card . My camera kept saying memory card locked . I was trying to install a 4 mg card and the guy at Kmart told me to try a 1 mg card and that fixed my problem on our Canon a530.

Card is locked how i can unlocked


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 put a new SDHC card in my camera(hp photosmart m525) and its telling me that the format is wrong then when i follow instructions its telling me that i can't format the card


The M525 works with SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in the M525.

Have a Photosmart M525 with a 1.0 GB. When it is on the screen says card locked, so of course can not take any pictures. What is the problem?


Look at your 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.
