Answers :

It's not the camera, it's the memory card.

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position nearest the contacts unlocks it, the position farthest from the contacts locks it. 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.
