Try a retailer near you to see if they will allow you to test your camera with a SD card from a display camera.

Good luck, I hope this helps!

The SD1100 uses MMC, MMC Plus, HC MMC Plus, SD, and SDHC cards. MMC cards are all but extinct, so consider it as using only SD and SDHC cards.

How to unlock memory card?

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Hello, I have a Canon PowerShoot SD1100 IS and can't find the cord to download pictures onto my computer and my computer does not allow me to stick the memory card in it. Can you please show me a...

Definitely forget the cord. Please see this blog article, as it describes the use of a USB plug-in card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. Note that card readers are also VERY inexpensive (some places less than $2 online with shipping).

What does 'memory card error' mean?

If the card has a slide switch on the side, it could mean that the switch is in the wrong position. It could also mean that the card needs to be formatted in the camera. This will erase it so download any pics first using a card reader if necessary.

Memory card error memory card locked even when I unlock memory card. Tried multiple memory cards.

Remove the SD card from the camera. Slide the tiny switch on the side of the card to its other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card in the camera. But if you've already tried this (or if this is happening with multiple cards), see this link for additional things that you can try.

Memory card error

Same thing that happened to me. You need to get some recover software, or loose all the pics on the card.
