Customer Question
I have a Canon...

I have a Canon Powershot G12. I get a message that the memory cars is locked. I can see photos on camera, but when I insert memory card in my computer the photos I show yesterday do not come up. How do I unlock the memory card.

Technician's Assistant: How old is your PowerShot?

Not sure -- four years maybe,

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your PowerShot?

All I am trying to do is unlock the memory card so I can get the photos onto my computer. Seemed to take the pictures ok. I can view them on the camera, but not on computer when I plug in the memory card and camera gives me a message memory card is locked.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

No. Just this. It is an emergency. Need photos for a job.
