I have the same problem with my Canon G9. I have found a solution and since doing it the problem has only happened once again. Here is the solution: I have a 32mb sd card that was given with the camera when I bought it. This card has different connectors than the ones that are used on the usual SD cards. As soon as this card is inserted the camera works properly and all other cards work fine after. I'm assuming that the sd card circuit blocks and this 32mb card unblocks it somehow... Hope this will help you.

Card lock for powershot S5IS

Look at your memory card. SD 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.

Cannon s5is powershot as soon as i turn camera on a memory card error comes up and theres no card in it, does same thing when card inserted. it's got to be something in the camera slot, is there a lock in...

On the SD card there is a little switch you can move. It has 2 positions, LOCKED, and UNLOCKED. To make the card available, put the switch in the UNLOCKED position.
Here is an example-

If that doesn't work, try putting the card into a memory card reader, like on your PC or a special USB attachment. If the memory card is recognized, then it might be a problem with your camera.

Just purchased new Cannon A495 camera installed 2GB memory card turned on camera display reads"memory card error" turned off removed and reinstalled batteries turned on camera problem still exists

Hello Art, Hi, The Canon brand is known world wide, but if the camera you just got is new and defective, why not return it to the dealer, have them try and operate your camera, if its defective they should replace it. Besides I don't advice gadgets with warranty, let the dealer repair it for you.

Memory card error with new memory card

Hi there, welcome to FixYa.

Let's work on the camera first.
1) Turn the camera off and remove the battery and the card.
2) Put the battery back in without the card and turn it on.
3) Turn the camera off and insert the CF card.
4) Turn the camera back on again.
See if that takes the message away.

If it doesn't leave me a comment and we go to step 2.
If it does, thanks for coming to FixYa.
