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.

How to Unlock SD Card


<p>Many times people do not realize that a <span style="font-weight: bold;">SD card</span> can be <span style="font-weight: bold;">write protected </span>or locked. They will <span style="font-weight: bold;">try to download pictures</span> or <span style="font-weight: bold;">make changes to the pictures </span>and the <span style="font-weight: bold;">SD card will not allow</span> them to do it. The little lock feature on the side of the card will <span style="font-weight: bold;">write protect the SD card</span> so that changes cannot be made. You will need to <span style="font-weight: bold;">unlock the SD card</span> to be able to make the changes that you want to make or download anything from it.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p><span style="font-weight: bold;">To allow the SD card to be accessed</span> is a simple as sliding a small tab on the side of the card to the <span style="font-weight: bold;">unlocked position</span>. Usually this means sliding the tab towards the back of the card and away from the front of the card. The card will have to be removed from the <span style="font-weight: bold;">camera</span> or <span style="font-weight: bold;">PC</span> to be able to do this.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>Here is a <span style="font-weight: bold;">picture of an SD Card</span> and you can see the tab on the side of the card. It clearly shows you what is the locked and unlocked positions on the card.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p><img src="heatman101_2.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>This feature can be very useful to make sure that you do not inadvertently <span style="font-weight: bold;">erase data or pictures</span> from the card. If you have children viewing pictures on the SD Card make sure to lock it before allowing them to play around to make sure that they <span style="font-weight: bold;">do not erase your pictures</span>.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>As you can see this is a very good feature to have and it will be very useful to you, but you do need to remember to unlock it before trying to make changes to the card.<br />

My Canon EOS camera was working fine. Now that I want to take pictures it say card write protection. How can I fix the came so I can take pictures?


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.

If this doesn't do it, try another card.

My memory card is write protected. when i turn on camera the screen is saying it is write protected, i can't take pictures or delete pictures


Hi. Thanks for your question.


SOLUTION 1 - Unlock the memory card.

There is a Lock switch on the left side of the SD card. Make sure the Lock switch is slid up (unlock position). You will not be able to modify or delete the contents on the memory card if it is locked.

NOTE: If you are using a microSD/microSDHC card or a miniSD/miniSDHC card, insert the card into the standard SD adapter.


SOLUTION 2 - Toggle the lock switch.

If the lock switch is not on lock:
1. Slide the switch up and down. Repeat this 3 times.
2. Let it stay on the Lock position for 30 seconds.
3. Slide the switch up to unlock the card.
4. Try to transfer files into the device.

When trying to take a picture it says card locked.


The SD card lock/unlock switch has been moved to the lock position. Remove the card and slide the switch (along the edge of the card) to unlock. If it is in unlock, try sliding the switch back and forth a couple of times. Reinsert the card and it should be ready to go.

My card won't let me take pictures or record video


Your camera supports an SD card. SD cards have a tiny switch that can be used to write-protect the card.
Make sure that the card memory is not full. If you are certain that the card is locked try to locate the tiny switch and move it to the 'unlock' position.
The following diagrams may assist you in finding the location of the switch:


Card Switch in Downward "Locked" Position (note the arrow by the word "Lock")

Card Switch in Up "Unlocked" Position

If you have tried this, and it is still showing locked, it is likely that the locking switch inside the camera's card slot is stuck. If you look inside the slot on the side of the slot where the SD card slide switch would be, you will see a glint of gold color on the side. This is the camera's lock/unlock switch. The other glints of gold that you may see at the far end of the slot are the reader's connectors (ignore those).

Camera's SD Card Lock/Unlock Switch

Somehow, the locking switch is making contact and has become stuck in the locked position (a single grain of sand can jam it there). With a plastic toothpick, or other skinny NON-METALLIC item, tap and gently push against this switch to see if you can jar open the contact to its normal unlocked position. Also try blowing compressed air at it, to clear out any gunk that may have worked its way in there, jamming it closed. Occasionally, reinsert the SD card to see if the issue has been corrected.
 
If repeated tries fail, it may be time to consider opening the camera to force open this switch (not recommended unless you have some familiarity with electronics).

Thank you for using fixya!

Sd card not working


Check to make sure you didn't accidentally move the locking switch on the SD card to the locked position. There will be a switch on the side of the card. One side of the switch says locked, (or has picture of a locked lock) and the other side says unlocked, or has a picture of an unlocked lock. Try it out.

Did you unlock the SD card or accidentally lock it again?. There is a switch on the SD card to unlock it. Try this and then let me know how you make out.
