Having problems with your Samsung S860 Digital Camera ?

When i tried to delete a picture it is telling me that the card is lock



Answers :

Look at your memory card. 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.
