Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I am unable to unlock my micro sd card so provide me help to unlock it

Answers :

Micro-SD cards do not have a lock. If you are using it in an adapter to fit into a full sized SD slot, then the adapter will have a lock. This is a little slide along one edge of the adapter. To unlock it, it should be moved towards the edge of the card which has the electrical contacts.

If that is not the case, then perhaps your camera cannot cope with the size of the memory in the card. Cards above about 2GB are not SD, but SDHC (High Capacity). These fit the same slots as SD but are slightly different electrically, and not all cameras can work with them.
