Memory card problem

I have a problem with my camera. When I turn it on to view pictures, or even record images, I get a message on the screen saying "This card is locked". I know its not full, there are only a few pictures on it, so what could be causing this problem?? Thanks for any help. Preeti

On SD cards, there is a tiny sliding switch on the card itself, which "locks" the card, preventing files from being added or removed. Try removing the card, and checking this little slide switch. In this photo... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Secure_Digital_Kingston_512MB.jpg ...the lock is the yellow bit on the left-hand side.

Why, when i take a picture and try to see it it comes up with a picture error on my sp-600z camera

The manual says:

Problem with selected image
Use photo retouch software, etc. to view the image on a computer. If the image still cannot be viewed, the image file is corrupted.

But try this. Switch of the camera, remove the battery and memory card. Check if all contacts are clean and shiny. On the battery, on the memory card and in the camera. Then replace the battery and memory card and switch on.
I hope this solves the problem.

Canon rebel T1i won't take a photo and gives message busy

Try formatting your card in your computer and then in the camera. If problem persists then try another memory card. You need to determine if it is a card or a camera problem

Your card is probably good. Go into the camera's setup menu and find the picture storage or memory section. Select external memory as default and you should be good to go.

Check the SD card, they have sliders on them which lets you "lock" the card so nothing can be put on or taken off of it. Make sure that is off. Then go through the menu on the camera and try to format the card again. If the card is bad it should give you an error message when it tries otherwise you should be good :)

Can not view pictures

No this camera does not have any internal memory. All images should be written to the memory card if the memory card is inserted properly. If the memory card is not inserted correctly the camera screen will show a message of No card. Do you see that message?

Hello, I went and researched a few points in the manual and hope this helps to some extent. If this doesn't help, try resetting your camera by removing the batteries for 30 seconds, then reinstalling them and turning on the camera again.
Monitor is blank:
• Camera is off.
• Batteries are not correctly inserted or battery-chamber
cover is not properly latched.
• Batteries are exhausted.
• EH-62B AC adapter (available separately) is not properly
connected.
• Camera is in sleep mode. Press shutter-release button
halfway.
• Monitor is off.
• USB cable is connected.
• AV/Video cable is connected


No picture is taken when shutter release button is pressed:


• Camera is in playback mode.
• Batteries are exhausted.
• Red (!) lamp flickers: flash is charging.
• Green (AF) lamp flickers: camera unable to focus.
• Message "CARD IS NOT FORMATTED" appears in
monitor: memory card is not formatted for use in your
camera.
• Message "OUT OF MEMORY" appears in monitor:
insufficient memory to record picture at current Image
mode setting.

Unidentified Image

Usually the only time this message will appear is when you have taken the picture with another camera and try to review it on another. If this is not the issue, try formatting your card. Try another card. It may be a faulty memory card. If none of this works, call Canon tech support for free support.

Images recorded to internal memory

They should be accessible by removing the memory card (if present) and powering up the camera. You should be able to view them using the playback icon (arrow). Access to erasing them should then be through the menu.
