Greetings jdep,

On your card there is a small slide on the side that will lock the card and write protect it. Slide this to the unlocked position and you should have no issues resuming picture taking or deletion.

I hope this helps!

Thank you,

Dorothy

How do I recover pictures back to my power shot sd card


If your computer has a built in card reader you can put any photo back on the card from your computer by dragging and dropping the file to the drive letter that is your SD card. If you're trying to recover lost photos from a SD card Google "card recovery pro". It's a free program that will read your SD card and restore as many photo's as it can.

I have a Cannon Power Shot SD400 and the Card Locked feature keeps coming up on the screen. How do I get rid of this???


Take the memory card out of the camera and look at it. 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. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Card locked


If this happened after the card had been removed then you may have inadvertently slide the card lock into the 'lock' position. If the card has not been disturbed, the very fragile 'switch' may be defective. I would try removing the card and operating the slide-lock several times and then leaving it in the unlocked position.

I have a cannon power shot sd900. I was fooling with the menu and accidently seemed to have erased my photos. Can they be saved?


Digital pictures are stored on SD cards as a file. These files occupy a fixed space on SD cards. Once deleted, your pictures will no longer be recognized by the digital camera, however the pictures are still there!
Take the memory card out or plug your camera into a Mac or Linux machine. If you have a Mac or Linux machine use a terminal window and look for hidden files using ls command.  This will show you the hidden files and your files should be in the .Trashes folder.  You can move them off the memory card with UNIX or Linux.

Card lock


there is a little switch on the left side of SD cards; if it's down, your card is locked and you cannot copy anything on it or delete anyfile, also you cannot take any picture by it. so you have to change the switch postion. just this! I hope this helps...

Cannon Power Shot A560 tells me 'card locked' how do I unlock it?


Remove the SD card. Look on its left side for a tiny slide switch. Slide it to its other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card and try it out.
