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.

Insert sd card again


At this time we recommend you use a different SD card and format it. SD cards can become corrupted and the camera may not recognize your card any longer.

When i take some snapshots on my vivitar f340 i cannot view photos on playmode. a blue screen appears with a message "no file(s). I have an SD card inserted and in good condition


Sure you did not lock the SD card? Are you sure it is a SD card and not a SDHC card?
I can't find anywhere in the manual, that your camera can work with SDHC.
Although there are some 4Gbyte SD cards, now most cards from 2 Gbyte and up are SDHC.
Check what card you have. Should be SD
Check if it is not locked see picture.
The switch should be up like on the 64GB card.

My Canon EOS camera was working fine. Now that I want to take pictures it say card write protection. How can I fix the came so I can take pictures?


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.

If this doesn't do it, try another card.

The message said "card locked" so I bought a new memory card after several attempts to fix it. With the new card in, the message now reads, "card unreadable"


Make sure you're using an SD card, 2GB and smaller. The M537 won't work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

SD 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.

Get message "card locked" - made sure sd card was unlocked, but still got message - tried another sd card and still received message


Hello

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.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

The card is locked appears on screen when SD card is inserted


Is it possible for you to use some tweezers and adjust the very small lever inside the camera's card bay? It may be stuck thus telling the camera the card is locked.
