What happens when you try to use the card, the camera just starts normally with no CHDK splash screen?

If CHDK doesn't start, and your camera doesn't show "card locked" the physical lock switch in your SX20 may be malfunctioning, or not working with this particular card. See this thread https://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=3374.msg31113#msg31113 for a similar case involving sx10
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Note the "lock" on an SD card is just a piece of plastic, the actual lock detection is done in the camera by a switch the lock tab is supposed to engage. It is possible that the card could be at fault if the lock tab is a bit out of spec, but it's more likely the camera side is at fault. A few people have reported fixing this by poking the lock switch in the card slot, see the thread I linked earlier.
