I had the same problem with a card in my power shot A540. on the side of the card there is a little white slide-bar. Push that bar the opposite direction of where it is and see if that works. Good luck!

SOURCE: I have message 'card locked'

There's a little white tab on the card that slides into "locked" or "unlocked" so you can save your pics. Pull the card and take a good look to be sure the tab is in the correct "unlocked" position.

Remove the SD card from the camera. Look for the tiny slide switch on the side of the card. Slide this switch back to the unlocked position (opposite of whatever its at now).

SOURCE: Canon powershot SD1200 IS says Memory Card Error

You probably just need to format the card in the camera. This will completely erase it so download any pictures you want to save first.

SOURCE: memory card locked

When this problem occur you need to set the memory card unlock or not protected. Remove the memory card from camera and you can see a small button in the memory card, so you need to slide that to set the memory card unlock or not protected.

Have a new computer. can't download pictures from camera (canon powershot a540) and don't have any canon disks that came with the camers. What can I do.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Canon Powershot A540 - Change Batteries when Batteries Fully Charged


Some of The Canon Powershot A530 and A540 cameras are subject to an advisory recall. Seems that a small spring on the battery compartment door can short out the batteries. Suspect this of yours, in that you mention that your batteries aren't lasting long. If your camera is on the list, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following link for more info:
