It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But as a solution I highly recommend that you instead consider a card reader to download your photos to your computer. They're very inexpensive, much faster downloading photos from the camera, do not use the camera's batteries during download, and are much less prone to file corruption of the photos during the download.

You place the camera's card in the reader, and your computer sees it as a hard drive. You simply copy/paste or drag/drop your photos onto your hard drive. For all of these reasons, most professional photographers utilize card readers exclusively. Really, you'll save yourself a lot of heartache. Here are some examples from Amazon. Also, don't be fooled by the cost. some of the cheap ones work just fine. Go by the reviews:

And for international readers, here's another source for card readers (free international shipping too :-)

If you cannot format the memory card using the format function of the camera, please connect the camera to your computer and use the computer to access your memory card and format fromt the computer.

A card that size is actually an SDHC card. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different. Many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

Display screen reads "card locked" on my powershot sd700


Hi,
Make sure the write protect lock is off by taking the card out of the camera, face the card towards you, look for a small white tab on the left hand side of the card, to unlock it push the tab down, it will be at the side of the card like this 59a6de4.jpg .

Good luck.

Canon SD700 IS


Hey! Mine doesnt either. Actually it works on my computer at work, but neither of my home computers. You have to use the ZoomBrowser CD it came with and install it on your computer. Its a pain...but its the only choice I had. Once you have the program on your computer it works like a charm!

Images not uploading to computer


  1. Uninstall and reinstall the Canon's software. Something may have gotten corrupted. This is the simplest and fastest thing .
  2. If that does not work, think if you need Canon's software - you can browse to the Canon directory under "My Computer" (or whatever you computer's name is), and copy the JPG files from under there.
