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 the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Card may have been locked I'll send you a diagram so you can see beside it's faster then i can type.
The other thing is you need to format the memory card Format not delete. Each time you download pictures to the computer you need to format the memory card. Instructions to do this are in your owners manual. most likely in your set up menu.

Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for. You'll need to use a card reader with the software. It won't work with the cable to your camera.

After you've recovered the photos, see this other article to help troubleshoot the problem with your card.

Everytime that I try to take a photo my screen reads "The card is locked." I've checked my cards and neither of them have been locked.


You have a bad locking mechism on the card or the camera itself has malfunctioned thinkng its loced but not. Try reformatting the stick using your pc and see if that help if not take the camera in for service.

Some cards have a lock tab on them. Make sure it is not in the lock position. If no go then take the card to a photo place and see if they can read it and download your photos. If that does not work then you can reformat the card (you will lose your photos). If you still are experiencing problems, try another card. If that does not work then it's off to the warranty repair or time to get a new camera. Repairs on these are only worth it if they are free or really cheap.
