With my Canon Powershot A470 it keeps saying card locked

\015 When I go to take a picture it just says card locked.\015

Answers :

Have you tried to pull out the card and see if there is a little slide lock on the card? if so try sliding the slide lock to the unlock position. if it's already unlocked, try accessing the card via your computer. You might need to format the card if it's new. I've run into this problem in the past with some new memory cards.

\015\012Another solution you might try is putting the card into the camera and see if there's a function in the setup menu that will format or unlock the card from within the camera. It's a longshot but worth looking into.

This one is not even 2 years old...
