There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the switch on the side of the card, or the switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

Sd card showing it is locked how do you unlock card


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.

Memory card locked


And you looked if the card was locked?
The 64GB card is unlocked the 32 GB card is locked. So make sure the switch is up when you see your card like these two.
When you are sure your card is unlocked, just check if all contacts of the card and in the camera are still clean, shiny, and straight. (no bent in any contact)

When i put the memory card in the camera, it comes accross the screen that the card is locked. How do i unlock it and how did i lock it in the first place?


Hi,

To remove the write protect lock, take the memory card out of the camera, face the card towards you, look for a small white tab on the left hand side of the card, to unlock it push the tab up to unlock it, it will be at the side of the card like this 59a6de4.jpg .


If the lock is in the off position then the card maybe faulty.

Regards.
