    Do you have images on this card that you are trying to save, or is it OK to erase everything on the card and start over?

This camera only supports an SD card of 1GB maximum. I tried a 2GB SD card and the camera reported the error you describe, that the card needs to be formatted (and it wouldn't format in the camera, either). I purchased a 1GB Duracell SD card P/N DU-SD-1024-C at Wal-Mart, and it was actually a 2GB card (tested in my desktop PC's SD slot and it was fine). Nice deal, but this camera can't use it. I bought a 3-pack of Kodak 1GB SD cards at Wal-Mart and they worked great in this camera.

I have brought a new 8gb memory card for it when i insert it it says it needs to format it i click yes then it trys to format but then says the card is unusable

The C533 works with MMC and SD cards. Your new 8GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use MMC or SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

You need to use an SD or an SDHC card. They should be available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store.

Brought a new memory card and it wont format keep saying error

Hi mr .
  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    Great camera - but only had it 3 years and flash not working now. Salesman at London Drugs, where we bought it from, says not worth repairing. I find this hard to believe - very expensive for only 3 years...

    The salesman just wants to sell you another camera, but he may be correct in his assessment. Take it to a camera shop (not a department store camera department) or contact Canon customer service via their web site to arrange repairs. Be sure to get a firm price before you commit though, as the fix might approach the cost of a new camera.

    Camera says "card error"

    Either you have pulled it out of the computer without disconnecting the hardware with the little green Icon ( at the right hand side of the computer ).

    Or if you just brought it inserted it into a camera and it said " Card Error " then the contact points need cleaning , if you need help respond and I am more than happy to help
