Whenever I insert an SD card and try to record video, the screen displays "CARD LOCKED," and doesn't allow me to record video. I have tried multiple different cards and it never changes.

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.

Aiptek is not so good at answering emails. If Nitrotrike's suggestion doesn't work, try posting this question at

Those guys are more likely to help you (or at least try) more quickly than Aiptek.

SOURCE: I recorded a video on my samsung sc-dc 164

how did you transfer the video from the card to your PC?

did you connect the camcorder to your PC or did you use a memory card reader?

if you can play the audio then what you need is the right video codec for the unit
try searching for video codecs through search engines

make sure that the software that you are using to play the video plays the file format of your video,

try using roxio, then connect the camcorder to your computer via USB, make sure that the drivers are installed, play the video through your camcorder then use roxio to capture it real time instead of the usual "copy-paste"

You need to tell it in the settings menu that you want to record to the hard drive instead of the SD card.

There is an install disc that came with the unit. On this disc is the FFDshow application. This application is necessary to properly playback the video files from the NS-DCC5SR09.

Once FFDshow is installed you should have no problems with playback or editing of the video clips.

Hope this helps!

turn off the camcorder, remove the SD card. Look along the edge, perhaps the end, and you should see a little slide switch. Move it to the unlock position (away from lock arrow, or towards the unlock icon). Reinsert the card, turn camcorder back on, you should be able to use it now.

How do i play whats on the memory card nothing plays video only audio. or what do i need to convert it


First, make sure you have it on CARD (and not DISK), and on the "playback" (and not record) mode. Next, does the camera play back other video clips normally, but just not a specific clip ?
Does the selected video clip frame (index) shown on the LCD screen have a picture ? If not, i.e. it is blank (dark), then it is likely that no video was recorded (i.e. just the audio) when you were shooting that video clip.
If there is a picture (of the video clip frame index on the LCD screen) and only audio is playing, try downloading the clip (from the SD card) to your computer, or simply try to play the video on the SD card (inserted directly into your SD card reader on your computer, or via a USB SD card reader) and see if the video clip will play normally on your computer.

I've tried multiple cards and always get the "Card


Hello

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.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards

Casio exilim ex-80 always shows SD card as locked


the SD card should have a small switch on the upper left side it slides from lock to unlock if this doesnt work Look in the card slot - there may be a small bit of plastic sticking out over where the card's locking switch would fit when the card's inserted.

"please insert memory card in GZ-MG130U CAMACORDER


Hi there.
The hard drive will be full so you will need to transfer all your videos to your PC then format the hard drive in the camera's menu, make sure the SD card is removed before you format it.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Hi Simon, what do you mean with 'update the SD-card'? I hope that SD card is not “locked”.
