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.
If that doesn't work, try another card.

My camera shows" card locked! " how I unlock?


Look at your memory card. SD 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.

My Samsung camera displays "Card


Take out the Micro SD storage card and if you look closely along the edge you will see a small slider with a padlock symbol ar both ends. Slide the slider to the symbol that looks like an unlocked padlock. This locking feature is to stop users accidentally erasing or formatting the memory card. Sometimes the slider can be moved if the SD card is a tight fit in to the slot.

My camera shows that my card is locked. How do I unlock it? Thank you!


Your memory card has been write protected.This can be very easily fixed.
  1. Turn off cam.
  2. Take out the mem. card. (it's probably located near the battery. press down on it and release it. it will pop out.)
  3. Slide the small switch on the side of the card to the position marked with an unlocked padlock.
  4. Put card back in and turn on cam. Done. that should fix it.

How to unlocked memory card?


A locked memory card will not allow you to write to the card; however, you will be able to read from it. Unlocking the card will allow you to delete files and write to the card. You will want to unlock it before inserting into the camera since this will allow you to store folders or files as well as take pictures with your camera.

first you need Look at the sides of your memory card for a tab in a slot.And then Move this tab up or down to put it in line with the icon that is on the card of an unlocked padlock. This unlocks your memory card. You will want to make sure it is always unlocked before using it in your digital camera; otherwise, it will not save your photos.Then you need to Insert the memory card back into your camera after unlocking to start using it to store pictures.Take the memory card out when done.
Move the tab on the memory card back to the closed padlock to re-lock it. This is not mandatory; however, it will ensure that your photos do not get deleted if other people have access to your camera. You can store the card in the camera or the case that came with the memory card.
That it!

Display keeps saying ''memory card error''


If this is occurring with multiple cards, and is also saying "card locked" even though the tiny slide switch is in the unlocked position, then see this post for a possible remedy.
