I would try to reformat the card within the camera. Go to your menus and find the reformat card selection.
If that doesn't work, I would get a new card or return that one if it's fairly new. These go bad just like other media and you don't want to put pictures you care about on unstable media. I would also recommend buying the best quality media that you can afford. 
If this is helpful to you, would you please rate this solution? Thanks!

Memory card locked


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.

How do you unlock a Locked sandisc


That depends on the type of the SanDisk product.

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.



Memory Sticks have a switch along one side. One position is marked "LOCK", the other position unlocks the card.


MicroSD adapters have a slide switch, just like SD cards.

It says memory card locked


AYou didn't specify what type of memory card you're using so I assume you're using an SD or SDHC 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.

I have a Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera I got a new memory card it is a sandisk SDHC 8 GB but I am getting a memory card error message.... What can I do?


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. The second most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Please note that your particular model camera can only use up to 2GB standard SD cards. These are relatively inexpensive these days, and may be purchased on Amazon if your local store no longer carries them. There are also other common causes if the above didn't help, with troubleshooting steps for this problemlisted here.

When I try to take a picture it says "Memory Card


Look at the 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 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.

Sandisk sdhc card 4gb my camera says "card error"


Remove the SD card from the camera. Slide the tiny switch on the side of the card to its other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card in the camera. But if you've already tried this, see this link for additional things that you can try.
