Question about HP Photosmart M527 Digital Camera
A friend took out the memory card and put it in her computer to get the photos, when I put it back in the camera, the card says it is locked now. She did not do anything except copy and paste the photos onto her desktop. How do I unlock the card?
There is a difference between delete and format.
Use the camera controls/menu options to FORMAT the card.
The only thing that would interfere with this is if you accidentally moved the switch position on the card to locked position. Check that to make sure that did not happen by mistake.

Locked should not keep you from getting the data of of it, so one option is to transfer the pictures from it to your own computer then reformat the card (use the camera menu to do this, not your PC).
Another is to mount the volume on your PC and change the permissions on that device, including all sub-folders, so that it is no longer protected/locked.
