    This worked for me!! I have a panasonic DMC-TZ3. I wonder how that tab thing got pushed the other way? Or do they just quit working all of a sudden?

    That did not work after I flicked the switch and did as instructed?! any more ideas?

    I've got a Casio Exilim and after dropping it, it forever says that the card is locked regardless of what position the "lock" setting is set to on the side of the card. I've even tried other memory cards and get the same result. I'm almost about to give up and open the camera up and see if something inernal is "tricking" it to think its locked mechanically.

    I have the same problem. it says "card locked" all the time. I have a bunch of cards and have tried them all in the locked and unlocked position, no difference. It must be a problem with the camera which really sucks as my wife just went into labor! My camera may have been dropped. It must be something internal that reads whether the card is locked or not that is broken. Did anyone open the camera up?

The switch on the card is a problem. Take out the card stop the switch by flipping (if it is loose) with the help of tape.

Formatting the memory card
When a memory card is formatted, all data on the card are permanently lost.
Some memory cards are supplied pre-formatted and others require formatting.
Consult your retailer to find out if you must format the memory card before you
can use it.
• Select Options→ Format mem. card.
Select Yes to confirm. When formatting is complete, enter a name for the
memory card (max. 11 letters or numbers).

Backing up and restoring information
To back up information from your phone’s memory to the memory card, select
Options→ Backup phone mem.
To restore information from the memory card to the phone’s memory, select
Options→ Restore from card.
You can only back up the phone memory and restore it to the same phone.

Locking the memory card
To set a password to lock your memory card to help prevent unauthorised use,
select Options→ Set password.
You are asked to enter and confirm your password. The password can be up to
eight characters long.

Your rating would be most appreciated.

Memory card

Take out the card first from the phone.
Format it using your computer's memory card reader.
Insert it back to the phone.
Go to Menu
Go to Extras
Go to Memory
Go Options
Select Format mem. card.

That should do it. You will be able to use your card again.
