Take the card out. On the left side of the card is a tiny white switch. Reverse the position.

you have to put a bit of tape around the bit were the little tab use to be.. This works epically if you have lost the tab from the card.

p.s. i did this with an SD card an it worked i don't know if it will work with any other types of card. good luck anywhos, try yahoo answers they seem to have alot of info too. (Y)

SOURCE: CARD LOCKED

There should be a small toggle along the end side (it is tiny and easily missed, but it is there, I just checked my memory card / mine is 4GB SD card from Sony) that you can swtich to unlock and your images may come back that way.

Look for it this way, hold the card face down it should be on the back edge where you use your thumb or finger to push it into the slot on your camera.

Oops. The little latch on the side in the unlock position, should engage a switch in the camera, indicating the memory card is not writ protected. It is not an electrical switch doing something in the memory card. But is the switch in the camera is defect, you get the same result. If someone once tried to press in a memory card, the wrong way around, this could have been the cause of a damaged switch. Just check the memory card slot, of nothing is in the cardholder, blocking the little switch from working correct. Sure the switch is in the up position, like in the picture? 25288825-qj532vtjsqner5bmetfl14fj-5-0.png

Memory card locked


I noticed that this camera does not work well with cheaper memory cards. The only brand that works without fail is the SanDisk brand.

Card Locked


If the card is locked, you could the steps below:

- Turn off camera
- Remove memory card
- Take a look on the switch of the memory card itself
* If it's at the TOP = card is UNLOCKED
* If it's at the BOTTOM = card is LOCKED

- So, you just have to make sure that the switch is at the top
for the memory card to be UNLOCKED

After doing that, you just have to put back the memory card to your camera and turn on the camera. Try to check if this works.

I just got done fumbling around with the same problem. All you need to do is take the card itself out of camera and there's a mini switch on the side of the card that slides up and down for lock and unlock.
