Hi,

Thanks for using Fixya.

(i) Unlock the memory card.

There is a Lock switch on the left side of the SD card. Make sure the Lock switch is slid up (unlock position). You will not be able to modify or delete the contents on the memory card if it is locked.my memory card suddenly says locked, why and how - 9632f20.gif


(ii) Toggle the lock switch.

If the lock switch is not on lock:
1. Slide the switch up and down. Repeat this 3 times.
2. Let it stay on the Lock position for 30 seconds.

3. Slide the switch up to unlock the card.

4. Try to transfer files into the device.
Thanks for using Fixya.
Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Why has my memory card in my Nikon L310 just suddenly told me that it is "write protected"?


SD/SDHC 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.

Hello Rahul

Download FE Explorer from the link http://fexplorer.en.softonic.com/download/25347

Insert card into your phone but don't access it through phone.

Run FExplorer and Open the path C:\system.

You will find a file called mmcstore ,rename the file mmcstore.txt

Copy that file(mmcstore.txt) to your pc and open that file in notepad.

You will find your password in that file to unlock the memory card.

My camera suddenly had the message "card locked!".


If this camera uses SD cards then what may be happening is that the little lever that drops into the slot on the side of the card to indicate locked or unlocked is jammed in the locked position. If you shine a flashlight in you might be able to see where the pin is.
