Canon Powershot G11 not recognising Sd card

My Camera has suddenly stopped recognising the sd memory card. It is the same one I have used since purchase 18 months ago without any problems until now. It is not the card as I have had it tested and my local camera shop has tried others without success. It inserts with no problem but keeps stating "no memory card". Any help would be appreciated..

SOURCE: Canon Power Shot A400 will only work with original Canon SD card

Make sure you are using an SD card and not an SDHC card. The SDHC protocol is newer than your camera, and your camera does not support it. SD cards have capacities up to 2 GB. Your camera should work properly with any SD or MMC card.

SOURCE: Canon camera won't accept SD memory card

It's a good bet that anything 4GB or greater is a SDHC card (look on the card, see if SDHC is written there). Your A530 was designed before the new SDHC format came out. Sorry, but your camera will not recognize this type of card. Recommend instead that you get a 2GB standard SD card. They're relatively inexpensive these days.

SOURCE: How to format an SD card on a Canon SD600 camera

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

Hi,


I highly recommend that you instead consider using a card reader to move the photos or videos to your computer. Card reader's do not require software (although Windows 98 and earlier may require drivers), are very inexpensive, are much faster downloading files from the camera, do not use the camera's batteries during the download, and are much less prone to file corruption of the photos during the download.Really, it would be better for the camera user if one of these was included with the camera instead of the cable and bundled software.You place the camera's card in the reader, plug the reader into the USB port, and your computer sees it as a hard drive. You simply copy/paste or drag/drop your photos onto your hard drive. For this simplicity, most professional photographers utilize card readers exclusively. You'll save yourself a lot of heartache if you convert to using one of these. Also make sure that you get a reader that is clearly stated capable of reading your card, particularly if you use SD-HC, XD, CF, or MS cards.


Thank you!

The memory card might have been damaged.If it was a problem with your camera it might not have recognized your 32k sd card.
So buy a new sd card.

Can I use 8GB SD cards in my Canon Powershot A620 camera? I thought I once read that it will only support up to 2GB SD cards.


The A620 uses MMC and SD cards. SD cards max out at 2GB in size. Larger cards are actually SDHC or SDXC cards and will not work in the A620.

The Canon A430 uses MMC and SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Sd card


Sorry, but your camera was designed before the 4GB SDHC card came out. Although they look exactly the same as a standard SD card, they are not. Your camera can only use standard SD cards (2GB or less).

PC transfers files to and from SD memory card but camera show "No image" on SD card. Why can the camera no longer recognise picture files?


If you are putting pictures on the card using the computer and then expecting to see them on your camera, it doesn't work that way. You also run the risk of corrupting the card and even the camera.

What sized memory card can I put in my Canon Ixus 750, I put a 4G card in and it doesn't recognise it!


This camera is specified for SD and MMC cards. SD cards are available in capacities up to 2MB. If you have a 4MB card, it is probably an SDHC (high capacity) card, which uses a different protocol than the original SD card. So the answer is 2MB, but it must be an SD card, not an SDHC card.

Wont turn on


It may be the SD memory card causing the problem. I just bought a G7. When I turned it on without an SD card, no problem. I put it my old cheap SD card and it wont turn on. I take out the memory card and battery, then insert the Canon SD card and battery and turn it on, no problem.
Hope this helps someone.
