All memory cards have a lock feature similar to 3.5" floppy disk. There should be a little switch somewhere, depending on the card. Just make sure it's not in the lock position.

I keep getting a memory card error and card locked on my Power shot A530 how do I fix it?


If your camera uses SD cards then these cards have a very small lock switch on the side. Move it to unlock and try again.

My camera disc has five pictures on it. I cannot take a picture or earse the picutres because it says "card locked". It will however, let me take the disc out and develop them.


Look at your memory card. SD 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.

Brand new 4 GB Sony memory card. I get a card locked/memory card failure.


The A530 works with MMC and SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and won't work. You need to use cards 2GB and smaller with the A530.

I try to take photos with Canon powershot A530 but it keeps saying memory card locked. What do I do and what does that mean?


Umm, take out the memory card from the camera and there should be this small lever at the side of the card that shifts up and down. Shift it out of the "locked" mode.

I Have a digital camera Cannon A530, but i can't take picture becouse said card is bloqued, what can i do?


Take the card out and look along the edge for a small 'switch'. This switch will have a 'locked' and an 'unlocked' position. Make sure it is 'unlocked'. If you still get the advisory, try another SD card. (Sometimes those little 'switches' fail.)

My card is locked, how do i unlock it?


Pull the card out, and make sure that it's not locked. If you're looking at the front of the card it's 1/3 of the way down on the left side. I've got one that has a grey tab and one that is white. They both should be up to unlock it.
