SD and SDHC 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.

Memory card is write protected


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.


You should be able to read the card whether its protected or not. In fact I always protect the card before putting it into my computer so as to prevent the computer from doing anything to the card.

Cant take pics,says card protected. used earlier and was fine, now wont take pics at all


Hello,

Have you checked your memory card to see if it IS in fact protected? It is amazingly easy for some camera memory cards to become accidentally protected.

Check and see if you card has a switch that allows it to be set to read only. And if it does make sure it is not set to read only.

My samsung camera wont let me take pics or videos b/c it says "CARD LOCKED" everytime i try to take pics


When this problem occur you need to set the memory card unlock or not protected. Remove the memory card from camera and you can see a small button in the memory card, so you need to slide that to set the memory card unlock or not protected.

Fujifilm FinePix Z20fd protected card??


The memory card should have a little switch on it, try it in the other position. It is a safety lock to stop it getting wiped.
