A few days ago I noticed my pictures were gone I didn't think much of it because I have thrm backed up, but yesterday I went to take a picture and it wouldant save it, nor would it take videos, I went to the few pictures that were on my phone and tried to delete one and it said sd card is locked, anyone know how to unlock it? Id rather not factory restore my phone, I'm using a motorola devour.
I Figure this one out just now! I was taking my card out earlier today to put some pics on from my PC, when I just tried to delete a picture it said "SD Card is locked" I tried everything, unmounting, etc. Very basic solution... Turn ur phone all the way off, make sure the micro SD card is in tight, and then turn your phone back on, quick fix! Good Luck let me know if it worked
I tried to put sd card into adapter and format it on the PC,
how ever it didn't work. After may tries I was able to move things
from the card, but it was still locked partly - when I tried to scan card
with windows scandisc it was automatically disconecting the telefon from my PC.
Lately I decidet to update my android to 2.2 and I noticed something weird
After android update was complete, it shown a sign 'unlocking sd card'.
When this was complete my SD card was back.
Thats why I'm surre this lock is comming from software.
My devour locked the sd card after I moved some files from my PC to my phone. I spent a few hours till my phone gave me a clue. so I tried this and it worked.
I plugged my phone into my computer. Chose manage memory card option. Transfered data fine. Then using notifications menu on phone, Chose usb connections, switched to modem mode. Stopped usb device with windows, and unplugged. Memory card unlocked now.
