Tried to unlock Lexar SD 2GB and Lexar SDHC 4 GB - No luck

\015 Tried to unlock Lexar SD 2GB and Lexar SDHC 4 GB memory cards for camera - multiple times, all with no results. * 2 GB - was able to use for 3 (three) days and take 3 (three) pictures before "Card Locked!" message * 4 GB - "Card Locked!" message on screen from debutLooked inside camera - switch is not "stuck" in open position. Now what? Time to buy a new camera? Very frustrated.\015

Answers :

First of all, the 4GB card will never be able to work in your camera. Check on its face. It likely says SDHC, and SDHC cards as this format came out after your camera was designed (I know it looks exactly like a normal SD card, but it's not).

\015\012Now the 2GB card should work with your camera as it is a standard SD card. Remove the card from your camera. Look on the side of the card for the tiny slide switch, and slide it to the other "unlocked" position. Reinsert it in the camera, and see if that corrects the problem.

Format error I have a Samsung digimax A40 camera. I 've just purchased a Lexar 4gb SDHC card. When I've tried to format the card for use, the screen comes up initially with "card error", then a screen to format - yes/no. When I press on yes, it takes a few moments and then comes up with Format Error, and turns itself off. Any suggestions on how to overcome this? We are heading away on holiday soon and wanted a bigger sd card as I currently only have a 256mb card in it. Thanks, Tracey.


I don't believe the camera can handle a card of that size. I believe the camera only supports up to 512MB cards, anything above that is not guaranteed. \015\012\015\012 ... Samsung Digimax A40 Digital Camera
