Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

My canon Powershot SD630 says "Card Locked" when I turned it on..how can I unlock it? Thank you


Answers :

SD and SDHC 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.
