In case it uses the SD card, then there is a lock feature in the card. You will need to unlock the card so that it becomes read/write enabled. In lock position, it is read only, so you can read the files from it but cannot create any more files.

Most SD cards have a switch on the edge of one side of the card. Sliding it up or down will unlock or lock the card. When the card is locked, you will not be able to transfer any audio tracks. Nor will you be able to play any copy protected files. We recommend you always keep the card unlocked.

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.

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.

you should try some photo recovery software, here are some programs you may rely on. Both programs can also recover videos and music.

Photo Recovery Software (for Windows)
Mac Photo Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)

Note: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the camera memory card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

How do i unlock my card in my cannon ixus 75 camera


Remove the card and look for a tiny slide switch on the side of the card. Slide it to the other "unlocked" position, and reinsert it in the camera.

Card locked


Dear codger19:

If your camera gives you "card locked" error messages with several cards and you KNOW that the cards are indeed not locked via the sliding lock mechanism, then your camera needs to be sent in for service as it has developed and electrical communications problem within the memory card control function.

I would first however try a hard reset by resetting your camera to the default settings, removing the battery and memory card for two minutes, and then replacing them. Retest the cards for the error message. If it still occurs then call 1-800-828-8080 for your options.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB
