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.Your battery is always drain quickly, that’s symptom of the battery near to run out.,it’s better to change it, your owner's manual say that Lithium AA's will work well and later almost as long.

Hope this may help….

    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.

Camera keeps saying "card locked"


Look at your 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.

Anybody please help me!!! when I take picture my cam keep saying ''CARD LOCKED''.. how to fix this problem??? Please...


Just like old 1.44 drives, sd cards have locks on them. Take the card out of the camera. Look at the side of it and locate the slide. This lock and unlocks the card. This is a feature to prevent accidental erasure of the card.

Hope this helps.

My memory card in my camera keeps saying its protected


Hi there, My name is Rob and I can help you. Do this:

Make sure the camera is off and pull out the SD card. Look on the side of the card. You will see a little switch. One side says locked (or shows a little picture of a locked lock) the other side says unlocked (or shows a little picture of an unlocked lock). Make sure the switch is in the unlocked position and reinsert it properly into the camera.

This will fix your problem. Thanks for coming to FixYa. Let me know if I can be of anymore help. Don't forget to rate my answer a fixya!

Locked 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.

Exactly. Sometimes if you use a card reader it will automatically lock the card when you install it. Keep that in mind.
