Sorry this is not a solution exactly but the sd600 will only accept cards up to 2gb.

Canon sd600 wont read 16gb memory card


No. The SD600 works with MMC and SD cards, which max out at 2GB. It will not work with SDHC cards such as your 16GB card.

What's your problem?i put a 4gb memory card in my canon SD 200 and it says error why


The SD200 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 in this camera. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

My SD600 states memory card full when I use the original SD 16M card. There are 6 pictures on it and will not take more. What settings should I use to correct that issue?


The original card that came with your camera was very low capacity. As you've discovered, it can only hold a few pictures, and was only included with the camera to show that the camera works. You really should purchase a new SD memory card. These are very inexpensive (here's some from Amazon) and will literally hold hundreds of pictures. BUT make sure that you purchase a 2GB or small SD card, and NOT a 4GB or larger SDHC card. Newer SDHC cards were designed after your camera, and although they look exactly the same, they will not work with your camera.

I bought a new SD card for my powershot SD600. I have tried two different cards and they both say they can be formatted. What is the problem?


Bet it's a brand new SDHC card.
There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

Scandisk sdhc card 4gb not working in my Canon SD600, is there a format that will allow me to use this card?


The SD600 is designed to work with SD cards, not SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the camera, they will not work. You'll have to stay with SD cards 2GB and smaller.

I have a cannon power shot SD600. I bought a memory card, and the camera says memory card error. I can't even fomat the card because the function won't high light.


Did you get an SDHC card? The SDHC protocol was developed after the SD600 came out, and the SD600 is not compatible with it. Use SD cards with a maximum of 2GB storage capacity.

How to format an SD card on a Canon SD600 camera when the menu says "memory card locked." The memory card is in the unlocked position. When we put the SD card in another Canon camera (SD780 IS), it works...


Could be that you have the wrong memory card.
SD600 will only work with the old SD cards, but the SD780 will take the SDHC cards.
SDHC was intended to give 4gb or more of storage, while the old SD started as 16 mb.  Different cameras have different limits, but it is always best to assume that the practical limit on an SD card is 2mb.  Even if the SD780 will take the SDHC cards, it can be more practical to only carry 2GB SD cards and know that they will fit either camera

I have loaded a new memory stick and get a message "memory card error" I have since tried another card and get the same maessage. Any idea waht the issue is.


Well if your camera is an SD600, I'm guessing that you bought a new 4GB SDHC card. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different. Unfortunately your camera was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, but a SDHC card will not work with your camera.

You'll need to use standard SD cards (usually those 2GB or less). But if you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for 4GB SD "non HC", with the non HC in quotes. Believe Transcend makes one.

My canon sd600 is not reading PNY sdhc memory card. msg says card is locked. it's clearly not locked


HC or High Capacity is not compatible with this camera. You have to buy a memory card which says only "SD" and NOT "SDHC". Cards of 2Gb and less are usually "SD". Cards of 8Gb and more are always "SDHC" for technical reasons. Cards of 4Gb can be either, but the SDHC kind are much more common, because they're cheaper and newer.

Sd600 poweshot can it take a 4gb or 8gb memory card? i was planning to buy duracell SDHC 4GB card with 10MB /sec transfer speed


No, unfortunately the SD600 was designed before SDHC format cards were introduced. The max card size that you should buy for your camera is 2GB standard SD. If you look around very hard, and if you're very lucky, you may still be able to find a 4GB standard SD card. But these are rare these day (everyone has gone to SDHC at that size card), and it will be at premium price.
