    I have been using a 4 gig card for years and have the same problem. So the size of the card is not the issue.

I don't know for sure, but since it is "grayed out," it MAY be that your camera can';t utilize a card that big (in gig's that is.)

Just a guess.

Work with a 1 GB card but shows Error message and card locked on new 8 GB card


The SD600 works with MMC and SD cards. Your new 8GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Both these disks say error when put in printer to download and say locked when put in the camera, have moved the lock on the side with no luck.


Have you ever formatted your cards in your camera? If not, that likely is your problem. They may work fine at first, but with time corrupt. Try formatting these cards in your camera, but note that this will also totally erase these cards. To format, put the cards in the camera, go to the "tools" menu, and select the item stating your cards memory capacity. Then follow the prompts to format, making sure that "low level format" is checked.

IF there are pictures on the cards that you don't want to lose prior to formatting, please see the following for some excellent freeware recovery software that you can use with your printer's card reader. AFTER you download your pictures with this software, then consider formatting:

Memory card error


When purchasing memory cards for cameras, you must specify HI SPEED. Low speed cards error out all the time.

Is this the original that came with the camera?

Memory card error/card locked


It sounds like your card is locked. You need to unlock it. On one of the sides you should see a piece that can move back and forth. Move it from the position it is now to the other side. This should unlock your card. When locked the files are unaccessible to anyone. This also means that files on the SD card cannot be deleted while the switch is in lock position. When the switch is in up-position, then all files located on the card are accessible to anyone, and that files may be deleted from the card.

Good Luck.

"Card Locked" error is false!


Remove card from SD600 camera. Locate sliding switch on side of SD card and move from lock to other (unlocked) position. That ought to do it. Compact flash card is another issue.
