Pentax A20 Opti: Card Locked

\015 Hi There,\015\012\015\012Any ideas how to make an A20 healthy again, it keeps saying card locked, cant remove the card, won't take video proper...is there some software or some combination of things I can do?\015\012\015\012Regards...Alex\015

Answers :

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.
