It comes up on my camera card is locked


SD/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.

My camera says "write protect" and dont know how


Look at your memory card. 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.

Sd memory card is protected camera is saying press reset botton.dont know where to find it. kodak ds6490


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.

Camera says card is locked but it's not!!!


You already know about the 'lock' switch on SD cards; did you know it doesnt actually lock the SD card by itself? It merely pushes a switch lever in the reader (in this case, your camera), that in turn tells the electronics to NOT write on the SD card.

So, if your SD cards are indeed working (check on a card reader), it would look like the lever in the camera that senses the position of the lock switch is jammed / bent. If you could pry into the card slot in the camera, and try to shake this lever with a long narrow object (a straightened paper clip, perhaps), that might yield good results.

Alternately, look up 'CHDK' on Google; it is an alternate OS that gives your Canon *lots* of other features. In your case, more importantly, it *requires* the SD card to be locked in use. Dont worry, with CHDK booted in, the camera will store pictures even when it sesnses the card is write-protected. So, it not only solves your problem, it gives you loads of extra features like RAW capability, time laps, remote operation and more, all for free.

My samsung s1065 camera is saying "card locked "i have not put a code or anything in it so i dont know why its locked an i cannot take any photos or anything


Remove the SD memory card from the camera. Look for the lock switch on the memory card and slide it away from the "lock" position. Re-insert the SD card and all should be well.

SD stands for Secure Digital and was one of the first memory cards to have a physical security lock to protect your data.
