    Media card locked-img_00000839.png

    Went into my file manager to pull up a spreadsheet I use to help close out my day at work and my media card wasn't listed. I manage a Valet stand and do a lot of running with my Z10 in my pocket. On a couple of occasions the media card worked itself loose. I reinserted the media card and it gave me a message saying that it was locked!

    I didn't lock it In the 1st place and can't seem to find a way to unlock it. I am looking for any suggestions.

    I used this card in my curve and I have never used encryption one the curve or Z10. I recently filled it up and had to delete and move some items to to make way for a movie I downloaded from BBW. When I connect to link I still can't access it.

    I plan on getting a bigger one soon, but would like get my stuff off of it.

    Any suggestions?

    You can get an adapter that can make it a thumb drive that can plug into a computer's usb port. You can try that and see if you can read it. I don't know - does that little card have a slider lock? My camera's regular sdcard (not the micro for phone) does have a physical slider switch that can protect the card. One possibility might be that the card was not making good contact when a read or write instruction to the card occurred causing a fault.

    Good luck

    Thanks F2,

    I was hoping that there was a way to unlock it, which is what I would still prefer to do. If all else fails there I may look at the adapter option.

    Turn on mass storage in storage and access and plug it into your computer. It might read it letting you move your stuff to the computer.

    Thanks, unfortunately I already tried that. It isn't giving me the option to turn on mass storage. It tells me that the media card isn't recognized.
