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.

When trying to clear out my camera... there is a black screen & it'll say this picture cannot be deleted when i try to delete. taking up space that i would like to use


Make sure the picture you can't remove isn't locked. When you're in review press menu and make sure that photo isn't set to locked (if so unlock and you should be able to delete it).
If that doesn't help, make sure you copy off all the images on the card you want, as the following instructions are intended to clear the entire card.
After you transfer all the images you want, you'll want to format the memory card. This can be done one of two ways. If you have the appropriate card reader on your PC, you can insert the card, find it in my computer. Then right click it and select format.
The easier way is to use your camera's format feature. I don't have that specific model, but it can usually either be found in menu, or by pressing the picture review button and then menu. Formatting the card should erase all the data on it and clear off the picture you don't want.
Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

Camara screen shows"card is locked" and is not allowing me to take a picture


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked" or "memory card error". 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, and 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 locked - that's the error message that shows up on the screen. I can't take pictures or review shots already taken....how do I 'unlock' my memory card?


Hi jodybuggie I know this is obvious, but have you tried sliding the little white lock tab on the side of the card back away from the contacts end?

My digital camara will not save pictures. Messages appear.


If you are using SD memory card, it can be locked. Take out your memory card, on the left side there's a switch. Turn switch up and try again. Hope this will work.

Digital camara and memory card


Basically picture files in memory card have corrupt data that's why computer doesn't recognize it.
HP recommends following action...
Close the HP Image Zone or HP Photosmart Software, disconnect the camera from the computer, and reset the camera. (can see this at HP Support)
2nd option is to find some memory card data recovery software on internet and use it to correct data files in memory card.
Thank you.
