Try Formatting the card.
Someone could have locked it accidently.

Hi I have a Canon Powershot A530 but if I want to take photo's it says card locked?


Take the memory card out of the camera and look at it. 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.

Brand new 4 GB Sony memory card. I get a card locked/memory card failure.


The A530 works with MMC and SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and won't work. You need to use cards 2GB and smaller with the A530.

My card says it is locked on my canon powershot A530 how do i unlock it?


When this problem occur you need to set the memory card unlock or not protected. Remove the memory card from camera and you can see a small button in the memory card, so you need to slide that to set the memory card unlock or not protected.

I try to take photos with Canon powershot A530 but it keeps saying memory card locked. What do I do and what does that mean?


Umm, take out the memory card from the camera and there should be this small lever at the side of the card that shifts up and down. Shift it out of the "locked" mode.

A530 cannon digital camera problem


Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for. You will need to use ayour card reader with this software.

The reason this occurred is that you likely never formatted the card. The card will work fine in the beginning but eventually will corrupt. AFTER you've recovered the photos, format the card in your camera to prevent this from happening again (dig out that instruction manual to figure out how). Keep in mind formatting will also totally erase your card, so again only do this after you've recovered the photos.

Cannot transfer files from computer back to Canon Powershot A530


Your camera is designed to be a source of pictures, not a destination. If you want to copy pictures to a memory card, you need to use a card reader and not a camera.

I Have a digital camera Cannon A530, but i can't take picture becouse said card is bloqued, what can i do?


Take the card out and look along the edge for a small 'switch'. This switch will have a 'locked' and an 'unlocked' position. Make sure it is 'unlocked'. If you still get the advisory, try another SD card. (Sometimes those little 'switches' fail.)
