Hi - You can download the manual by clicking the link underlined in blue below:

See page 166:

Also try formatting the card in the camera as cards that have been used in other cameras or formatted on a PC may not work correctly until formatted in the camera.

I bought a 4gb memory (Sony) card. I t shows unsupported when turned on , is it compatable?


The M415 works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card and won't work with the camera. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Good big picture and it doesn't matter that it has Canon written on the SD card in the picture the SD card is interchangeable between the two makes.

Now one other thing that may also be the problem is that the SD card needs to be formatted to the camera. Formatting should be done on new memory cards and after you have downloaded pictures to the computer. That's format not delete, delete leaves a mess on the card Formatting cleans the card and provides proper communications between the camera and the memory card

Possibly the SD or SDHC memory card has been locked here is a diagram of a memory card in the two positions.

Also a new memory card will need to be formatted to the camera before the camera can properly communicate with the memory card.

Once you use a computer to write to a memory card, it no longer works properly in a camera because of the different operating system. The only way for the card to work again is to format it in the camera. This erases and optimizes it for the camera.

Try turning the camera off and then back on.Ensure that the memory card is the proper type for the camera. If the memory card is the proper type, try re- formatting the card using the Format option in the Delete sub-menu of the Playback Menu. If it will not format, it is probably corrupted. Replace the memory card

Unsupported card


The first thing you will have to check the card. There is slot on the card that contains a switch. This will lock the card so that it is write-protected. This will cause the unsupported card error.

If the card looks fine, try a card reader just to confirm that the card has not been corrupted.

If the card is functional and you can read its contents from the PC or another SD-slot device, then the issue is your camera. The slot contains thin copper prongs that comes in contact the copper surface on the back of the SD card. If the prongs are bent or damage, then the camera cannot read your card.

I have fixed this before. So if you details instructions, contact me.
