Hi there!

There may ba a couple of reasons for this - so check which you think most likely first.

If this is a new memory card, it may be too big for the camera. Some of the older models can't handle the larger sizes.

The memory may be corrupted. This is quite a common problem, but we haven't figered out if it is temperature, use or handling that is causing these errors.

The camera's driver may be sending out spurious faults. The way to correct this is by downloading a new driver for it, and reloading it.

Battery faults also give other problems too, so it's often wise to remove everything, then load up from scratch.

I hope one of these solves the problem for you.
Thanks for using Fixya!

If the camera displays Memory card error, No Memory Card, or takes an abnormally long time to write an image to the memory card, when a memory card is inserted or any of the above error messages, make sure that the card is inserted properly. For SD card, make sure that the card lock switch is in the correct position and not stuck in-between.Try formating the memory card ,if after formatting the card in the camera the error persists, try another memory card. If this occurs with only the one card it is likely that the memory card is defective, if the error persists over more than one card the camera may require service.

This error message means that the card is corrupted or formatted for another digital camera. Turn off the camera. Insert a new card or format the card.
Try to format the memmory card using a card reader and the PC this should solve your problem if not you have to replace the memmory card.

I would like to ask what memory card seem to be locked. is this literal so you cannot pull it out ? If so then the memory card might have been inserted in the wrong position.

Memory card error


Check the slot and see if the pins inside are fine, no breakages, free from dust etc. Try turning the camera on and off (completely remove batteries etc).

"Memory card is locked


This error message means that the memory card is write-protected. To take a picture, turn off the camera. Then insert a new card or change the storage location to internal memory.
