I got a 2GB SD Memory Card from Toshiba for my G9 Canon camera, after using it for a while, I pushed it into my camera and it says "Memory card error" and a line in the bottom "Card locked", but when I get the card out, it isn't. I locked it and push it in, same effects. Also,when I push it in my computer, it can detect the card, locked or not, not a thing. I tried connecting the card through a cable when its pushed into my camera, but still, nothing. Thanks a lot for your help.

All I can say is they Do go bad, as long as you're sure the side tab is working properly

The camera will automatically unlock the card every time you insert it in the camera if it didn't you could not save pictures. Also check the contacts on the card and make sure the grooves have not become warn (the plastic that separates the contacts).
