My Canon PowerShot SD870IS shows card locked. How to unlock???


Answers :

Some of the SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position \015\012farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. \015\012The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is \015\012already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then \015\012back again.
