First off... let's make sure you are doing one thing correctly. After you take a picture, it writes the information to your memory card. Make sure you allow it to complete that process _before_ you change and dial settings, go into the menu, or try to review it. If you interrupt it while it is writing to the card, the image will often become corrupt and give you the file error message. Next, I want you to format the card. Use your manual to find out the correct steps to follow. But be aware that it will remove all the information and photos from the card. It essentially erases the card so it looks empty and brand new to the camera. If the problem persists, you more than likely have a bad card. If it's still under warranty, try to return it. Otherwise, you may have to purchase a new one. Thanks in advance for reviewing me.

Card error - samsung a50 (card 4GB SDHC)

the card reading error appears when the card is locked by the side button ..and you try to make an operation forbidden by this locking action ...another thing may be a reading issue based on the card reader driver malfunction reinstalling the card reader will be a point to start ..after that be sure that the card is not physically locked by the side slide button ..and the last thing be sure the files are not protected...another issue that may cause the error is the contacts of the card itself ...insert it proper and be sure they are not oxidized ...
If you do not have important files on it ..a formatting will be a good thing to do ...

My digimax a50 camera keeps saying card locked

SD and SDHC 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.
