I have a 32 MMC Plus Canon high speed memory card that my computer won't read and my camera says the card is locked. I have looked all over it. There is no slider on the card. How can I unlock it?

If it is not the locl/unlock tab on the card itself then try wiping the contacts clean on the card and blowing out the card slot in the camera or vacumning it out the best you can.
Can you access it from your computer directly? If so then you probably did get something in your camera card slot
Also can you see it in your menu in the camera? to ry reformating it ?..be sure you have all your data off it first.

No, the computer won't read it at all. I've tried some other cards and they are fine, so I know it's not the memory card slot.
When I go to the camera menu, the "format" command is greyed out--it won't even do that.
I'll keep trying. Thank you.

Seems like it might have read it in the past. I just can't remember what is on this particular card. I'm charging up my daughter's Nikon camera that is newer than my computer. I'll try it in there. If it doesn't work, I'll just consider it a lost cause (and card). It's just strange that I have another Canon 16 GB card that also doesn't have the slider on it. Is that just Canon specific? All my other cards--Sandisk and Lexar--have the slider. Oh well.
Thanks for y'all's input. Just kind of frustrating not being able to access the info on the cards.

Ah, I did not know that. I did try it in the SD slot on my 7 year old printer and it came up as a memory card error. I will try it in an older computer and camera and see what I come up with. Thanks for that info.
