Card lock means that someone switched the little gray sliding lock on the memory card. It prevents the camera from saving new pictures to AND copying pictures from the card. All you have to do is take the card out and slide the little gray slider back into the unlocked position. Take the card out of the camera. On the side of it is a little 'switch'. Flip the switch in the opposite 'unlock' position
1)check the card to make sure the write protect switch isn't on the wrong setting. It's on the side of the Secure Digital card (not memory stick).

2) I hope you're not buying Memory Stick. That's for Sony. You should be buying support digital.

3) Check the card contacts--if the card isn't making good contact in-camera, you'll get hold of card errors. This happens when someone touches the contacts on the card. Usually cleaning will work unless something sticky get on it. Most memory cards do have exposed contacts, so you enjoy to be careful when handling them ...

4) Format the card in the camera if you grasp an error message. It may just entail to be formatted.

    If moving the switch does not unlock the card, then the card may be faulty, put the card in a computer card reader, download the pictures and then format the card from computer. First ensure the switch is not on lock position.

    Here is a picture of an SD card.



    Some other card does not have lock switch, in this case try first pulling out card and batteries from camera and putting them back in two minutes. If this does not work proceed with computer and eventual formatting procedure.

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 screen says "card locked"


Hi,

Remove the memory card and you will find a switch on the left side of the card. It must be locked, so slide or push the lock on other side to open it and then insert the card back to the Camera.

"this memory card is locked" appears on screen

If that doesn't do it, try another card and see what happens with that one.
