First remove battery and card and look in your flash card slot for any bent pins. If you see some, don't fret. Use a small/skinny jeweler's flat screwdriver to bend the pin back as close as possible. Take your time and use as much patience as you can muster (take a breather in between if needed).
It doesn't have to be perfect, just as close as you can get it. When it's there, take your flash card and "SLOWLY" insert it. The card itself should fine-align the pin. Remove the card, and verify that the pin is still straightened. If so, reinsert the card and try it out.


If there are no bent pins, then the internal BIOS battery has likely run down and is causing this error. Don't attempt to fix this yourself. Canon will fix this for you for free, with free shipping, regardless of your camera's warranty status. See and print out the following advisory:

Also, see the following link for tips on contacting Canon regarding camera advisories. This particular post concerns a CCD advisory, but the tips are the same:

I cant seem to upload my pitchers form my camra to the computer


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Camera memory is full. On upload, indicates no


There could be a memory card error or the Operating system may not recognize the entries on the device. Try connecting the card directly to the computer through a card reader. This might help. If not running a photo recovery software will get back your pictures. Check http://digital-assembly.com/products/adroit-photo-recovery/ and try running it on the memory card. After you get back all your pictures, I would recommend formatting your memory card, so you start off fresh the next time.

Communication error when uploading pictures on computer


I had the same problem. My problem was that there were more than 1,000 images stored on the memory card. Once I deleted some of the images from the camera memory card, I was able to download pictures again.
