OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.
If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.
If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.
If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:
1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off. 2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.
Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.
It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.
If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

If the card is intended for your digital camera then try to format it in the camera itself. DO NOT format it in the computer if it's meant for the camera. If it isn't intended to be used in a camera then you could possible attempt a format in the computer. These cards usually arrive ready formatted which makes me think there is a possile fault with the card itself. But try the format routine and see how you go. I know it's new but it is possible a small amount of grease or dirt could have accumulated on the gold connections. Rub these with a small piece of printing paper to clean them up (printer paper is very abrasive and makes a great electrical contact cleaner)
If you have no luck then a trip to where you bought it and see if you can get a replacement.
either your pc card reader or adapter for sd card is at fault here....but try this way connect your camera to pc (using usb cable)...go to my computer see the new device (camera) click on it to open ...your pix are there now copy & paste (click & drag) to your folder on the pc...hope this is helpful...feel free to rate
