Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I have a Canon PowerShot A620 camera with a memory card. Up until 1 week ago the computer would read the memory card. I now put the card in and the green light is on but nothing happens on my desk top. My drive is not listed under devices with removable storages. What has happened. I want to be able to read the memory card.

    I appreciate your effort. When I put the memory card into the PC slot, it is not identified, consequently I cannot desiginate a drive for the program to format the disk. More suggestions appreciated.

    Thank you

I have the same problem, but when I shut down the computer or try another day it will work just fine. So weird! Usually when it doesn't read the card, I just put the memory card back into the camera, plug it into the usb and read it that way. Always works.

What type and size memory card? The A620 works with MMC and SD cards, 2GB or smaller. It will not work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

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.

Bought new sdhc memory card and it reads memory card error please help


The A620 is designed to work with SD cards, not SDHC cards. SDHC cards will fit into the slot but are electronically different. You'll have to stay with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Canon A620 LCD shows "memory card locked" for each card I insert


This worked for me!  I have the Canon Powershot SD780 IS and although my card WAS NOT locked, the camera "malfunctioned" and the switch in the camera needed to be gently pushed back IN, not DOWN on my specific camera type.  This is great, I was just going to go out and buy another camera today!  Thanks for the post Stephan!

Some cameras cannot handle over 2GB memory cards. If it works fine with 2GB card - stick to that. If some other A620 you know operates with 4GB card, take yours to repairs.

Put new SanDisk 4GB card in Canon A620 and get Memory Card Error


The A620 came out in 2005, before the SDHC (high capacity) protocol had been introduced. The A580 came out in 2008 and is compatible with the SDHC protocol. The A620 is only compatible with the SD protocol, and maximum capacity under this protocol is 2MB.

I put a brand new SanDisk SDHC 4 GB memory card in and it says "memory card error; card is locked".


I also own an A620, but unfortunately I also learned the hard way that SDHC cards are not compatible with this camera. The A620 was designed before the newer SDHC format came out, thus although they look exactly the same, your camera will never work with these cards. Your camera uses standard SD cards (2GB or less). There are some standard 4GB SD cards, but they are very rare these days, and costly.

Your camera has a board with the SD card slot board and electronics to record and retrieve images. This board can be replaced and should cost about $100 to repair.

it sounds like the cards is know good. It happen to me once if you take the card out of the camera before turning it off it can destroy the card. Then the card is know good at all. The camera will not be able to read it or the computer.
