    I have the same problem except my camera is a Canon Power Shot A720 IS. I can read the cards when I put them into my computer which tells me that it must be something in the camera that will not unlock the card. Any suggestions will be helpful.

    Memory card locked. Even with a new memory card. I also adjusted the switch on the memory card.

    I have the same problem with my A430.
    It's a 4gb, and despite trying it with the unlock and the lock position, it won't work.
    The SD card used was straight from the package.

    I have the same issue with my Canon Powershot SX10IS. I bought a new memory card, it says the same thing, so it is the camera, not the memory card. I have slide that tab, still no luck with it working.

There is a tiny button on the side of the card - so small you can hardly see it. Just slide it up and voila All is solved.

Take the card out. On the left side of the card is a tiny white switch. Reverse the position.

Oops. The little latch on the side in the unlock position, should engage a switch in the camera, indicating the memory card is not writ protected. It is not an electrical switch doing something in the memory card. But is the switch in the camera is defect, you get the same result. If someone once tried to press in a memory card, the wrong way around, this could have been the cause of a damaged switch. Just check the memory card slot, of nothing is in the cardholder, blocking the little switch from working correct. Sure the switch is in the up position, like in the picture? 25288825-qj532vtjsqner5bmetfl14fj-5-0.png

My canon digital camera ixus 75 card is locked how to procedure to unlock


Look at your memory card. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Unlock it. SD cards have a little slider on the left side (face up) that locks and unlocks it.

I noticed that this camera does not work well with cheaper memory cards. The only brand that works without fail is the SanDisk brand.

I just got done fumbling around with the same problem. All you need to do is take the card itself out of camera and there's a mini switch on the side of the card that slides up and down for lock and unlock.
