Having problems with your Pentax Optio S7 Digital Camera ?

Message card locked how can i unlock the card


Answers :

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, the position nearest the contacts unlocks it. If the slide is already in the proper position, try sliding it fully the other way and then back. If that doesn't work, try another card.
