I am getting memory card error with my power shot A 620?


Memory cards do go bad, and some are even defective. What is the error you're getting? If it's a "read-only" error, memory cards have a switch on the side for protection of the contents. Switch that.

The message says memory card error....it is a new memory card


Try formatting the card- in most cameras there's a menu option under tools or system or something.
If the camera still can't use the card, try the card in something else (like a computer memory card reader or an mp3 player with a memory card slot). If it always has errors it's probably defective

Canan 350D with CF error, says no image on screen. How do I fix this?


The memory card could be bad, try formatting the memory card, or the camera could be damaged. Look inside the memory card door, take out the memory card and look at the little pins in the camera that the memory card connects to. If any are bent or missing then the camera will need a major repair to be fixed. This is something for Canon or qualified technician to fix.

D-380 smartmedia card formatting


There is something alled the CIS header on Smartmedia cards. If that is missing or damaged, any compliant Smartmedia device will not let you use the card. Many card readers are not Compliant and thus ignore the CIS block.

It is advisable to not try and "recycle" cards with a damaged CIS block by using them in a non complying card reader because of one of the reasons why the CIS block is there is to ensure something called the bad block table is present on the card as well. The bad block table maps the locations of bad memory cells and prevents writing to them so the card will apear 100% good. All cards have some bad cells from the factory even. Most likely the bad block table will be missing as well and your non complant card reader will end up writing over bad memory cells which will cause future read errors and data loss.

You would need access to a compliant Smartmdia reader that is compatible with the SMPREP (or similar) formatting utility to fix problem smartmedia cards. SMPREP fixes the CIS block and scans the entire card for bad memory cells and updates the bad block table.
