Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

SD and Mini SD memory cards has a small slide switch on the edge of the card, which write protects data on the memory card or add photos to the SD card. Slide the switch from the LOCK position to the UNLOCK position, which is furthest away from the contacts.

I TOOK SOME PHOTOS WITH THE CANON POWER SHOT A530 (ABOUT FIVE). I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO VIEW THE INTERNAL MEMORY PHOTOS. ALSO CAN I HAVE THEM SWITCHED TO THE SD CARD? I DID'NT KNOW AT THE TIME THE CARD WAS...


First, promise to never use the internal memory again. Go into the menu and there should be an entry for "copy" which should allow you to copy the internal memory to a memory card. After that, you should "format" the camera with no card inserted to erase the internal memory.

I have a Canon Power Shot A520 and have just put in a new memory card 4GB and new batteries. When I turn on camera is says memory card error at the top of the sceen. Why is that?


The A520 is designed to work with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible.

You need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller.

Memory Card Error


You could take the card to a store that has a Kodak picture maker machine (Walmart, etc.). From there, you can print your pics or even make a cd of them. The card may be faulty or just may not work in Canon cameras.
