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.

Camera reads card lock when trying to take a photo


Since you neglected to specify the make and model of your camera, I'm going to assume it uses SD/SDHC cards.

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.

I contacted dxg and they told me just to take card out and unlock it with the little lever on the top left. i did this and it still wont unlock the card. i also tried an old sd card out of a camera and it...


The internal memory of the camera must have been used at one point, remove the memory card from the camera, go into menu and locate "format" follow the instructions to remove the pictures when prompted. When you have completed the process install the memory card back in the camera, this should now give you access to taking photo's.

My Kodak EasyShare V705 keeps telling me that the memory card is protected and to reset switch on memory card. How do I do this?


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 .

Nikon Coolpix L18 suddenly states that card is not formatted.


Sounds as if the card is corrupted - you will have to use data recovery software.
