There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the switch on the side of the card, or the switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

Memory card error message on a canon powershot A700


On an SD card there is a switch at the side which can be moved to protect the card contents (locked) or permit writing to the card (unlocked). Just move this to the unlocked position.

My canon power shot A420 blink a massage card locked ,card error when i micro sd card adaptor in it and my adaptor is also unlock mod


SD and Mini SD memory cards has a small slide switch on the edge of the card, which write protects data on the memory card or add photos to the SD card. Slide the switch from the LOCK position to the UNLOCK position, which is furthest away from the contacts.

I got a new 4gb sd memcard for my 2005 canon ixus 50, screen shows " memory card error" "card locked". tried switch on card as u suggested, no diff.


The IXUS 50 works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller.

Card locked


So I got the same error message a few weeks ago. I bought a card reader and a software program that is supposed to recover lost/deleted/corrupt files but to no avail.

I have tried the SD card on my sister's camera (same Canon powershot) and it doesnt work. I have tried my sister's SD card on my camera and it does work so it is not my camera. It is clearly the SD card with an error.

What can i do, i cant lose these pics!!

Thanks anyone who might have an idea.

P.S. The SD card itself is UNLOCKED.

Memory Card Error


You could take the card to a store that has a Kodak picture maker machine (Walmart, etc.). From there, you can print your pics or even make a cd of them. The card may be faulty or just may not work in Canon cameras.

Sd600 poweshot can it take a 4gb or 8gb memory card? i was planning to buy duracell SDHC 4GB card with 10MB /sec transfer speed


No, unfortunately the SD600 was designed before SDHC format cards were introduced. The max card size that you should buy for your camera is 2GB standard SD. If you look around very hard, and if you're very lucky, you may still be able to find a 4GB standard SD card. But these are rare these day (everyone has gone to SDHC at that size card), and it will be at premium price.

This definitely sounds like a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status.
