Hello Carol,

If it is a SD or SDHC card you can see a little sliding switch on the left hand side of the card on the label side.
When this is slid down it locks the card.
Push it back up to unlock the card.

Hope this help.

After locking memory card, do I then unlock it to take pictures and will that then erase the memory card or can you tell me how to so


Locking the memory card prevents you from taking and adding photos to the memory card. It also prevents you from deleting photos from the memory card.
If you want to erase all the photos off the memory card. unlock the memory card, go to the camera's Menu and scroll through the settings ti Format the memory card, then format the memory card.

Camera says "unabled to format, please replace card"


Check the SD memory card R/W switch.
SD and Micro SD memory cards has a small slide switch on the edge of the card, which write protects data on the memory card or add photos to the SD card. Slide the switch from the LOCK position to the UNLOCK position, which is furthest away from the contacts.

The memory card is locked! I don't know how this happened but I want to delete the photos. How do I unlock the card and delete all the photos


Depending on the card, there may be a little slide lock on the side that you can move with your thumb to lock and unlock.

I am getting a card locked sign


Remove the memory card from the camera, along one edge you will see a small switch, slide it towards the contacts this will unlock it, if farthest from the contacts it is in the lock position to protect photo's from eraser. If the switch is in the unlock position and the card is still locked, slide it back and forth once or twice to get the card to reset.

I am unable to take photos with my samsung digimax s800 camera as the message 'CARD LOCKED' keeps coming up on screen. I have deleted loads of photos so the memory card is definitely not full. Any ideas?


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.

Screen shows 'card locked' ,Unable to take photos Memory card checked. It is not 'locked'. Exchanged yto new card but still ;card locked'.


Remove the SD card from the camera. Slide the tiny switch on the side of the card to its other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card in the camera. But if you've already tried this, see this link for additional things that you can try.

Memory card locked!


There is alittle slide on the memory card.
Take it out. Look for it. Depending what you have it may be yellow, look on the left. If it's down, slide up and it will be unlocked. :)

Unlocking memory card


http://www.pentax.de/downloads/photo/uk/Optio%2060/Optio60_Manual_web.pdf

pg 17 at the bottom shows how to unlock the card, but it is simple, take out the memory card and on the side of it will be a little tab which can slide, slide it off the lock position and it should work
