Having problems with your Nikon D50 Digital Camera ?

I cant take any pics with my nikon d 50 because it shows that card is locked


Answers :

SD and SDHC 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.
