Error 23 is the same as Err 04 in other Canon camera's. It means too many images. Te camera can't find space to put your images.
There can be several causes, but most of the time there are just too many pictures (or other files) on the memory card.
There is also a possibility, the card is not correctly formatted, or the filesystem has become corrupted, so the camera can't find out where is space to put your pictures.
First check if you can find images on the card, and try to save them to a computer. Use the Zoom browser software, or use an external card reader connected to the computer. When you saved all pictures, you can free some space by deleting some pictures, but the best way is to format the card in the camera.
Also check if the lock switch is NOT on the lock position.
The photos on the SD card may have been deleted. To recover deleted photos use the Recuva program.
Recuva (pronounced "recover") is a freeware Windows utility to restore files that have been accidentally deleted from your computer. This includes files emptied from the Recycle bin as well as images and other files that have been deleted by user error from digital camera memory cards or MP3 players. It will even bring back files that have been deleted from your iPod, or by bugs, crashes and viruses!
Put the memory card into an USB card reader and plug it into the USB port in your computer, then run the Recuva program.
Simple to use interface - just click 'Scan' and choose the files you want to recover
Easy to use filter for results based on file name/type
Simple Windows like interface with List and Tree view
Can be run from a USB thumb drive

Restores files from external ZIP drives, Firewire and USB Hard drives
Use Canon's Zoom Browser software - it comes on the CD with the camera. 1. Open the image upon which you want the date and time. 2. Left lick on File then on Print. 3. The image opens in another window with a Properties column on the left including Shhoting Time/Date. 4. Left click on the down arrow and select your desired parameter. This can be varied if you then click on the Properties window BELOW Shooting Date/Time. 5. Left click on PRINT. Done
the back catalog of your images are not gone. Since the pictures you have uploaded form your camera to iPhoto all those files are still there. All you need to do is re-load the images into the library of iPhoto.
1) Start iPhoto, then in the menu goto File / Add to library..
2) Then a file browsing window will open, all you need to do is locate the folder in which u had specified to iPhoto. (Default location for iPhoto is located at MainHD / Users / Username / Pictures / iPhoto Library
3) Once you have located the folder or folders you wish to add to your library or catalog just press import. And all the images should show in the catalog.
4) if you have more pictures saved in another folder, then repeat steps 1 to 3 again. but in step 2 locate the folder or drive you wish to import from.
if you take pictures on digital zoom, the picture quality may not be acceptable. Try don’t use digital zoom.
digital zoom is not really zoom, it just enlarge a portion of the image, thus 'simulating' optical zoom. That is why you lose image quality on digital zoom.
use explorer to download until you implement a suitable solution. my suggestion is to reinstall the canon software. 'read only' will not affect you. you can change the file attributes once you have the image downloaded, but it usually does not remain as 'read only' after downloading a copy. m
You can add all your pictures to the program's library which should eliminate that problem...
