if we are talking about an SD card ...see that in a side ..the card has a slide like button with 2 positions ...locked and unlocked... just unlock it cause it might have been locked when handling it...
Yes card locked means litrarily "card is locked." So you must unlock it.
Eject the memory card and take good look it. On one of the edges you will see a very tiny "latch." Slide it to the other side, and the card is unlocked. One position is the locked position while the other is the opened position.
I'm not sure about your particular instance, but this can happen if you change up cameras or use a card reader.
As for being unable read the memory card, sometimes the card can be switched off by accident. Turn off the camera and remove the card. Look at the side of the card and there will be a little switch. One end says locked (or shows a little picture of a locked lock) and the other end says unlocked (or, shows a little picture of an unlocked lock). Just move the switch to unlocked.
Try that, and let me know with a comment if that doesn't work, othewise, thanks for coming to FixYa!
First check the memory card to see if the lock tab is in the UNLOCK position. On the top left of the memory card is a slide the moves up and down. The slide should be in the up position for it to be unlocked. A locked memory card could cause the camera to read a CARD PROTECT error message. If you still receive an error message, verify that you are inserting the card correctly so that the spring locks in as you fully insert it. When performed correctly an Icon will appear in the lower right hand corner of the LCD screen. Also try inserting the card while the camera is on. The memory card may also need to be formatted through the camera’s settings-- Note:Formatting will delete all files, so be sure to transfer any important files to your computer before doing so To Format: Insert the memory card into the camera and press the mode button to get to the mode screen. Enter into Tools/SETTINGS and find FORMAT. Once you select format you will receive a YES or NO option. Select YES and you will see a FORMATTING message. Once the formatting is complete, see if the camera reads the card and functions properly
