Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

i transferred some pictures into a computer - 6c99e31.jpg

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

Go to your profile page. the link to this page should be in the upper right and look like this:

Then go to your photos. the link to this page should be on the left hand side and look like this:

Then go to "Upload video." the link to this page should be on the upper right and look like this:

I can't get my pictures from my camera to my PC when I hook it up with the USB cable the box comes up for me to choose what I want to do and when I hit transfer pictures it isn't showing any of my pictures...


I will need some further clarification because it seems like your talking about a few different problems. You transferred the pictures successfully to your computer? Is it that you can't find where the pictures are located on the computer? If you deleted them from the camera there is no way to transfer them now. That is why you always want to make sure you have the pictures copied and backed up properly before deleting them from the camera. If your copying pictures via a computer then you want to copy them back with a usb memory card reader.I hope this answers your questions if you need further assistance please let me know.
Thank you,
Lee
