There is a tiny switch located on the side of the memory card, might even say lock on it or beside it. Just flick the switch opposite of the way it is now and it should work fine after that. There might even be a small arrow showing which way to switch it. The reason for the lock button is "just" for this, so you don't accidentally erase some wanted pictures or someone else.

Memory card error appears.cant take any more pictures. what do i do now...


Your camera can handle MMC and SD cards. Modern SD cards are most likely SDHC cards and can't work in your camera. `please look for maximal 1 or 2 Giga Byte cards and the should not have SDHC or SDXC printed on them.

If your card is full, and it won't take more pictures, try putting most or all photos on a computer. Then delete the pictures you transferred. Make sure you also backup you pictures on an other medium.
Also check the lock switch on the memory card is NOT in the lock position.

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.

Look at the 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 the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

I put a new memory card in my camera and it Camera


Guess. the lock tab on the memory card is set wrong. Or, the card has a bad memory cell in it and the camera cannot get to the boot track of the SD card. You will need a new card!

Cannot delete images in the camera.


Check the card and see that the little slide switch on the side is moved to the unlock or clear position. You try to delete images off another card to see if it is the camera that is defective. Is it still under warranty?
