I have a DSLR camera that uses an SD card to save my pictures into.So, I went to take pictures. I took alot of them pictures and of course I got good results, though I have to say that I am still a newbie.

Yesterday, I have to take the SD card out of my camera to do my routine maintenance checks. Everything went fine. I reinserted the card to the camera only to find out that the CARD is LOCKED!  Suddenly I cannot take any pictures anymore. It is always saying that the card is LOCKED!Please help me unlock it?

Correct me if I am wrong, but you can lock the SD card and keep the data inside it protected. This lock is found at the side of the card itself. If you want to unlock the card, simply slide the lock the other way. Check it out.

Yes! There is an exposed metal part at the side of the SD card but I can't see the sliding lock you are referring to.It is not there.

I see. Chances are the sliding lock may have fallen off. Try covering the exposed metal part with a small tape. That should unlock the card

I can see the exposed part on the SD card. I can cover it with a small piece of tape.Is it safe to cover it with the tape? Do I have to worry of something else?

It is safe to cover the exposed end part of the SD card with tape as long as it is properly covered and the tape does not fall off when inserted to the SD slot of your camera.
