The screen on my camera says 'Memory Card Locked'. The solution is to take out the memory card and flick the switch on the side. But I can't take the memory card out- it appears to be stuck. At the same time as the screen starting to say 'Memory Card Locked' the memory card only comes out half way so I can't flick the switch. How do I solve this problem??

When I put my memory card in my camera it says Err Cf and won't let me take pictures and won't show any of my previous pictures on the card on the screen on the camera.

The computer doesn't register the card at all and I tried putting a different memory card in the reader and it worked so it definitely isn't the card reader that is the problem. I don't care if the card is broken but I have a bunch of picture
