    I have an IXY 30S which has been the perfect camera for me since I bought it about 3 or 4 years back. I get a message when I switch on reading "memory card locked" and it doesn't allow me to take any photos. I can view photos on the card but can't delete anything either.
    I can't see how to unlock it in the Menu settings. Can anyone advise?

    There is a switch on the side of your memory card. Slide it up to unlock the card.

    Thanks Andy. I've had this memory card for all these years and didn't know that the switch was there. Fixed the problem straightaway after wasting an hour going through the settings and manual.
    Thanks again.
