Having problems with your Samsung L100 Digital Camera ?

Unable to shoot the snaps as the error reads' card is locked'.


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.
