Hi, try to format your SD Card on your camera (backup pictures first). If you can't then try to format on your PC. To format on your pC do the following steps: 1) insert your SD card 2) right click the SD Card Drive (make sure you select the correct one) choosing the wrong drive would cause BIG problems for you. If you don't know which drive it is Do Not Continue 3) Select Format.
If you PC doesn't format properly or has a problem with the card then you know the problem is the card and not your camera. Make sure also that the SD Card is not Locked.
The SD500 uses SD cards (and by extension, microSD cards). SDHC and microSDHC cards are electronically incompatible. While SDHC cards and microSDHC adapters will fit into the slot, they will not work in SD devices. This is a hardware issue and cannot be updated by firmware. You need to go with SD (and microSD) cards, 2GB and smaller.
The lock switch on the SD card looks like a bit of plastic without any electronics. A bit like the write-protect tab on a 3.5" FDD.
So there must be a sensor in the reader / camera which detects the position of the switch. Maybe there is dirt in the sensor. The best way to check would be to try another SD card, but you could try blowing out any possible dirt and see if that fixes the problem. Can the camera write to the SD card?
