This might be caused by the "lock" tab malfunctioning on your SD card. It has happened to me before and I pressed it in and out until I slowly worked it out of the slot.

USB driver for Canon A3100 powershot


You don't need a driver.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Memory card in my powershot A3100 IS say memory card is locked how do I unlock it


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.

Does it require a memory card


A memory card isn't necessary for most cameras but makes a nice addition to the number of pictures which can be recorded on a camera and is usually a recommended upgrade.

You might want to consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

Memory Card Error, Memory card locked


Take the memory card out of your camera and look at it. SD and SDHC 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 Canon A3100 is saying memory card error - underneath it says memory card locked. I tried the option of sliding the switch etc. but without any luck. Can anyone help me with this. The memory card was...


The little lock slider switch should be pushed forward to the top edge of the memory card towards the gold contacts to unlock. I hate asking a question to solve a question but did you use a card reader or did you download the images from the camera through a USB cable. Two things well maybe three first make sure the slider is in the correct position then see if you can format the memory card in the camera. What you might have done to cause this error is disconnected the camera from the computer without first "ejecting" which shuts off the card before disconnect. Another thing and I dearly hope you didn't do this would be to have formatted the memory card in the computer.

If you didn't eject the memory card it is possible to have caused the memory card to crash
Please do not format a memory card in the computer and expect it to work again in the camera
It might be possible to re-format the memory card in the camera after formatting in the computer but it's a stroke of luck.
Always format the memory card in the camera you are using it in.
