Pull the card out, and make sure that it's not locked. If you're looking at the front of the card it's 1/3 of the way down on the left side. I've got one that has a grey tab and one that is white. They both should be up to unlock it.

Memory card locked


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.

Just installed a new memory card in my powershot A430 and the camera says memory card error, card is locked. how do I unlock?


What type and size memory card? The A430 works with SD cards. It won't work with SDHC cards.

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.

Cant get my camera to transfer photos to my computer


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Card locked!


Take the memory card out and you will see a little notch on the side. You should be able to push that up or down to lock or unlock it
