Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A460 Digital Camera ?

Card locked I reformatted and stuff but nothingsays card lock i don't get it

Answers :

There's a tiny little switch on the side of the card itself...to write-protect the card so you don't write over important stuff.  Pop the card out of the camera and move the switch to the other position.  It's tiny, so easy to switch by mistake.  Also, some are loose and switch themselves.
