Having problems with your Casio Exilim EX-Z3 Digital Camera ?

I cannot delete picture or take pictures on my Casio Exilim camera. I get "The card is locked" message.



Answers :

Take the memory card out of your camera and look at it. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.
If that doesn't work, try another card.
