Question about Canon PowerShot S51S Digital Camera

How do you erase the SD card from the camera?

I have a SD card in my canon and I can't figure out how to erase the card after I have downloaded the pictures. Also when you use the flash do you have to hit the flash button and then the click button for every picture you take? Thank you so much for your help.

You cannot erase the card fromm the camera(You can delete the pic one by one using the delete option though). However you can connect the cam to your PC using the USB cable. The cam will be shown as a drive. Just right-click and click format. As for the flash no, you dont have to hit the flash button for every pic.

Hi, I own the Canon PowershotA540, recently I discoverd that once I put the SD card in my computer to download the pictures it downloads them, but once I put the card back into my camera all the pictures...


This sounds like the program you are using to download the pics is set to erase them from the card when the download is complete. You need to dig into the program and adjust the settings. That's as much as I can tell you since I don't know what program you're using. Your camera is fine.

I have a Canon PowerShot SD 1200 IS Elph. I searched your site for about 20 minutes before I sent this, so as not to bother you with a question you've probably been asked a million times, but....How do I...


I'm assuming you've downloaded the pictures you want to save to your computer because there's no going back. Go into the camera menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions and your card will be completely erased.

Memory card error when I put my sd card in. Pins don't appear bent


You might just need to format it in the camera. This will erase it so download any pictures first using a card reader if necessary.

I need to recover accidently erased image files from my sd card for my Canon S2-IS camera


First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download this photo recovery software

Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

Can't un-protect Images in My Canon Rebel XS


It sounds like the locking switch on the side of the SD card is in the "locked" position. Remove the card from the camera and slide the tiny switch on the card to the unlocked position. That should do it.

Card locked cant take photo


Remove the SD card from the camera and look for a tab on the left side of the card. If the tab is slid down writing/erasing is impossible. Slide the tab up and writing/erasing is possible.
