What do it mean when it says card is locked

SD and Mini SD memory cards has a small slide switch on the edge of the card, which write protects photos on the memory card and prevents photos from being deleted or added to the SD card. Slide the switch from the LOCK position to the UNLOCK position, which is furthest away from the contacts and you can save photos on the memory card.

The memory card is locked! I don't know how this happened but I want to delete the photos. How do I unlock the card and delete all the photos

Depending on the card, there may be a little slide lock on the side that you can move with your thumb to lock and unlock.

Camera keeps saying "card locked"

Look at your memory card. SD 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.

The photos on the playback mode are locked and cannot be deleted. how to do I take them off the lock mode to delete?

Hi there, This is because your memory card might be locked. Turn of the camera and take out the memory card and adjust the small tab up located at the upper left side of the memory card. Then put it back, power on the camera and try again. Let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have the samsung s630 and i have taken some pictures on it before i got a memory card. i want to save them to my memory card, but when i insert the memory card those photos wont show up. how do i get...

If you remove the card from the camera and connect the camera to your computer with the USB lead, you should see the camera's internal memory as a disk drive on the computer. If there is a memory card inserted, you will see that memory instead.

Unlocking individual pictures is done with the same function that locked them. It is probably on a menu available when you are viewing the pictures on the camera.
