Locked Memory crad
\015 It says memory card locked but its not and I bought a new card\015
If you look on the side of the memory card, there is a little slider thing that locks it. If it is pushed up, slide it down or vice versa, that should unlock it. I think that it's a safety feature so that you can't delete photos accidently. I hope that this helps :)

This is a Exilim ex-z80 8.1 mp camera.

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??
