I have too many files on the card; error message says "card locked."

How do I unlock so files can be deleted?

Eject the card. On the side there is a little clip which slides up and down. If it's down you can record but not delete, so it has to be in the up position so you can delete your pictures

Not entirely true. The slider 'Locks' the card and prevents writing to it or deleting files. Files can still be accessed and copied off of course.

Indeed. The card has to be written to, in order to "delete" anything.
