SD and 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.

Take the memory card out of the camera. Move the lock switch on the side of the card to the unlocked position if it is in the locked position. Replace the card carefully without moving that switch.The unlocked position on most SD cards puts the switch towards the end of the card that goes into the camera first.

If that doesn't help, try a different card. The card you are using may have a problem that could require formatting. Copy your photos to another drive first. (Use a drive/photo recovery program on your computer (with the card in an SD card reader). There are some that will attempt to read even a corrupted SD card.) Then reformat the card. If the card can't be reformatted, it may have failed. Check your warranty on the card and see if it will be replaced by the manufacturer.

I hope this helps.

How to unlocked memory card?


A locked memory card will not allow you to write to the card; however, you will be able to read from it. Unlocking the card will allow you to delete files and write to the card. You will want to unlock it before inserting into the camera since this will allow you to store folders or files as well as take pictures with your camera.

first you need Look at the sides of your memory card for a tab in a slot.And then Move this tab up or down to put it in line with the icon that is on the card of an unlocked padlock. This unlocks your memory card. You will want to make sure it is always unlocked before using it in your digital camera; otherwise, it will not save your photos.Then you need to Insert the memory card back into your camera after unlocking to start using it to store pictures.Take the memory card out when done.
Move the tab on the memory card back to the closed padlock to re-lock it. This is not mandatory; however, it will ensure that your photos do not get deleted if other people have access to your camera. You can store the card in the camera or the case that came with the memory card.
That it!

HOW DO i unlock Panasonic Lumix DMCFS42 Digital Camera? When I try to delete photos on camera is says memory card locked. I'm confused to how this even hapened.


SD type cards have a little switch on the card that can write protect or "lock" it. Take the card out of the camera and check this switch. To unlock it, it should be moved towards the edge of the card which has the electrical contacts.

Chances are the card has gone bad, are you able to access the data on the card even though you can take any new photos?. Very rare bu it does happen. Buy a new card to try or see if one of your friends has a digital camera/camcorder to test. The lock/unlock switch on the card is probably bad. You can buy a new one say 512mb for about $10-$15 or a 1mb-2mb for about $$25-50..

Card is locked and will not allow me to take photos, can view the photos already on the card on the camera only, not on computer, ect.


Most SD cards have a switch on the edge of one side of the card.Sliding it up or down will unlock or lock the card. When the card islocked, you will not be able to transfer any audio tracks. Nor will yoube able to play any copy protected files. We recommend you always keepthe card unlocked.

After unlocking the card you should be able to simply delete any photos you wish using your pc or camera.

My memory card in my camera keeps saying its protected


Hi there, My name is Rob and I can help you. Do this:

Make sure the camera is off and pull out the SD card. Look on the side of the card. You will see a little switch. One side says locked (or shows a little picture of a locked lock) the other side says unlocked (or shows a little picture of an unlocked lock). Make sure the switch is in the unlocked position and reinsert it properly into the camera.

This will fix your problem. Thanks for coming to FixYa. Let me know if I can be of anymore help. Don't forget to rate my answer a fixya!
