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.

Receiving "card locked" message and unable to take


Take the memory card out of your 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.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

Screen shows 'card locked' ,Unable to take photos Memory card checked. It is not 'locked'. Exchanged yto new card but still ;card locked'.


Remove the SD card from the camera. Slide the tiny switch on the side of the card to its other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card in the camera. But if you've already tried this, see this link for additional things that you can try.

The card is locked appears on screen when SD card is inserted


Is it possible for you to use some tweezers and adjust the very small lever inside the camera's card bay? It may be stuck thus telling the camera the card is locked.

Can't un-protect Images in My Canon Rebel XS


It sounds like the locking switch on the side of the SD card is in the "locked" position. Remove the card from the camera and slide the tiny switch on the card to the unlocked position. That should do it.

What kind of memory card does it take? Some have a very small mechanism on them for locking the content. Check to see if it is in the locked position.

There's a little switch on the side of the SD card. Remove it from the camera and find the switch. Normally, there's some very small printing next to it saying something like (Lock / Unlock).
