Cannon IXUS 40.Saying, Card Locked.How do you unlock it?


Answers :

In case it uses the SD card, then there is a lock feature in the card.\015\012You will need to unlock the card so that it becomes read/write enabled.\015\012In lock position, it is read only, so you can read the files from it\015\012but cannot create any more files.

\015\012\015\012\011\011\015\012Most SD cards have a switch on the edge of one side of the card.\015\012Sliding it up or down will unlock or lock the card. When the card is\015\012locked, you will not be able to transfer any audio tracks. Nor will you\015\012be able to play any copy protected files. We recommend you always keep\015\012the card unlocked.
sd%20card%20lock%20slider.jpgNOTE:\015\012We have found that on some cards, if the slider is even halfway towards\015\012the lock position, the card will be locked. Make sure that the slider\015\012is all the way to the UN-locked position.
