Memory Card Error Canon Ixus 70

After trying to download the pics on a pc, using built in pc slot for memory cards, the camera said "memory card error". When I put another memory card in, it works with no errors. Could the card have gotten hurt? (We could not download the pictures to the laptop as it did not work)

When i turn it on Memory card error comes up, i have changed cards, both cards worked fine before, cannot format card using camera as FORMAT is greyed out in menu and just skips over it.maybe needs reload...


Please have the memory cards checked on with another PC and if detected have the cards formatted. If so check your PC for any virus in the OS.
If there is no detection of the memory card then it is possible that the card detection slot reader is not contacting or a possible software error in the camera.

Hi I have a Canon Ixus 200 IS. When I first used it I downloaded photos no problem onto both my laptop and home desktop. Now though I am getting an error - do not recognise USB device - or something...


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.

As for the locked card, look at the memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

I got a new 4gb sd memcard for my 2005 canon ixus 50, screen shows " memory card error" "card locked". tried switch on card as u suggested, no diff.


The IXUS 50 works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller.

I get a "Memory card error" message on my SD750?what could be the problem with my card and can it be solved?


Hello,

The reason there is an error message on your memory card is because the memory card might have been damaged or probably not inserted properly.

To find out if the memory card is damaged, try to use the memory card in other devices that supports the memory card to see if it works. If it works on other devices, then the problem if from the card reader that is in the camera, and if it does not work, then the memory card is faulty. And the only solution is to replace the memory card.

To test the slot in the camera, try a tested okay memory card on it, if it does not work then the slot is faulty and to solve this problem, i will strongly advice you take the camera to a camera repair guy to clean the slot for you.

Goodluck

I keep getting a error that reads memory card error, i've tried different ones(cards)with the same result.


You may only need to format the card in the camera. This will erase it so download any pics first.

Memory card locked


Take the card out. On the left side of the card is a tiny white switch. Reverse the position.
