There's a little white tab on the card that slides into "locked" or "unlocked" so you can save your pics. Pull the card and take a good look to be sure the tab is in the correct "unlocked" position.

It's a lost cause. The A540 works with SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in devices not designed for them. You need to stay with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

My memory card is locked and i tried everything i have a canon a540 powershot and the memory card is a sandisk 8gb


Have you noticed the slider on the side of the card? This acts as a lock and might have been accidentally moved to the locked position, in which case you could just move it back to unlock again. Hope this helps.

Canon powershot A540 I have tried to erase memory card but it says card locked. How do I unlock.


Look at your 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.

Memory card locked


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.

Remove the SD card from the camera. Look for the tiny slide switch on the side of the card. Slide this switch back to the unlocked position (opposite of whatever its at now).

There's a little switch on the side of the SD card. Remove it from the camera and find the switch. Normally, there's some very small printing next to it saying something like (Lock / Unlock).
