There is a lock on SD cards. It usually is a white switch on the left side of the card. Turn the switch in the opposite direction and try it.

My camera is blocked: it says WRIITE PROTECT


Hi,

Remove the memory card and you will find a switch on the left side of the card. It must be locked, so slide or push the lock on other side to open it and then insert the card back to the Camera.

I have a canon A590 it always says the memory card is locked. Please Help we are going on vaction....


Look at the memory card. 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.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

BTW, if you're about to go on vacation, get a second memory card anyway. Would you drive a car without a spare tire in the trunk?

Can I take semi full memory stick out, replace with a new one, & deal with saving & printing those pic's later? I am not sure what I am doing & going on vacation & need to beable to take...


Hello,
Absolutely! That is the wonderful thing about digital cameras. You can buy as many memory cards as you like and if one gets full, put in a new one. Usually when you buy a new memory card it comes in a plastic lock casing. These are great to save, to keep your already-full memory cards safe.

Have fun on vacation!

Please let me know if I can help you further.

I know other people have had this problem - but can't find a solution. I have a Canon Powershot SX200 with a Simpletech 2GB memory card, after taking 185+ pictures on vacation the card says it's locked,...


Hi,
Is the card locked? A small switch on the card in the lock position? If that isn't the case you may want to consider having a professional recover these photos. Once I have more information I can assist you further.
Thank you,

How to unlock my memory card


On side of The SD card there is a little lever that slides up and down this is the protection lock. PUSH it all the way to the top. Sometimes when inserting it gets caught and will move just enough to have the camera consider it locked. So be careful when inserting it.

If this does not fix it try another SD card or reformat it.

Memory card not reading in canon a75


So as not to spoil your vacation, go buy yourself a new compact flash card locally. They should sell them anywhere electronics are sold, including WalMart, etc. See if you can get this new card to work in your camera. If so, then you can work on trying to get your current CF to work, by trying to format it in the camera. If you can't get a new CF to work in the camera, then you likely damaged either the pins in the CF socket in the camera, or some switch that is pushed when the card is inserted (to tell the camera there is a card in it). It is unlikely you will be able to have this fixed during your vacation, unfortunately.
