    Having the same issue as "sycamoretree". It's not a problem with the card, since I've tried two other cards that are working in my other camera. Problem occurs once any of the cards are inderted into the slot in the M425. I am also unable to get the format capability. Stumped!

Many times you need to format the memory card in order to use it... have you formatted the memory card? There's a menu on the camera to do this.

If you're using a card like an SD card, there's a very small slide switch that actually locks the card so no one can over write your pics. Find the slide switch and move it the other way, and that should unlock the card. You'll still have to format.

The camera have to format the card
before you can use it.

There is a slider on the card.
Try to move the slider so the card is
not write protectet.

Look in your cameras manual
for the settings of formating a card.

Good luck.

Card locked


Hi,
An SD memory card usually has a little white slider on the outside of it. I says in small letter, with a little arrow "LOCK" . Push the slider in the opposite direction of the arrow i.e. to unlock it.
If this is the case, then the camera should be able to communicate and write to the card.
There is also the possibility that the device in the camera which detects this slider is damaged. In that case the camera should be repaired. I think, though you will be OK moving the slider.

There is also the possibility that the card is corrupted. See the Link below

My memeory card is locked


On the side of the memory card, there is a small slider that locks and protects the memory card from being overwritten. Yours may be in the locked position. Simply pull out your memory card from your camera and unlock your memory card by sliding the tab.
Hope this helps,

Memory card is locked. Where is the lock?


This is usually caused by the SD card, and is nothing to do with the camera. On the SD card there is a small slider - which allows you to lock the card (to prevent accidental erasure).

If you put in on the table with contacts upwards, corner cut top left, then the slider is on the right hand edge, about 1/3 the way down. If it is slid to the top position (nearest the contacts) the card is unlocked. If it is slid down (away from the contacts) the card is locked.

If it is a damaged / "cheap" card, sometimes the slider falls out, in which case the card is locked. You can still read from it, but not write to it until fixed or replaced.

First check is to turn the camera off, remove the card, move the slider to locked, then back to unlocked. Replace in the camera and turn on.

My camera says my CARD LOCKED. how do I change


Hi!

You need to take of the memory card off the camera. Inspect the memory card and look for a slider. The memory card is write-protected so you need to move it up if its currently on the bottom position. Reinsert the memory card into the camera and then do some tests again.

Memory card blocked!!


I have the same exact problem with my camera and NOTHING works. Bought a new card, didn't work. Checked and rechecked the card to make sure it isn't locked...didn't work. I have no solution for you but to tell you you are not alone with this problem and it isn't your card or the little slider on your card. It is within the camera.
