Well, first of all, I'm not exactly an expert on this, so please don't rely solely on my response.

It's possible that it needs an SD card, not an SDHC card. SDHC cards are high capacity, and some cameras just aren't able to use them because they're set up for the plain SD cards. Does it say what kind it needs in the manual? I think, if it's an older camera, I'm not sure what age exactly, they can't use SDHCs. Like I said, I'm not an expert, so you might want to get more info, if you can. Hope this helps.

Canon PowerShot SD400 No memory card message, but there is a memory card installed. Tried multiple memory cards and got the same message. Made sure the memory card was locked.


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link. By the way, if you're using 4GB or larger SDHC cards, they won't work with the SD400 as that camera was made before SDHC came out. Consider 2GB or less standard SD cards only. They're very inexpensive these days on Amazon..

First, make sure your camera can accept SDHC cards. If the camera says the card is locked, move the slide switch on the side of the card.

My Canon SD400 will not recognize the memory card when inserted now. it says "no memory card found". is there a fix for this ?


Is it a new 4GB memory card? If so that might be your problem. The card would likely be an SDHC card, and your camera was designed well before the SDHC format came out. Your camera can only use standard SD cards (2GB or less). But if the card is 2GB or less, see this link for additional things that you can try.

I have a canon powershot SD400 elph. Camera menu


I'm guessing you bought a new 4GB SDHC card. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different. Unfortunately your camera was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, but a SDHC card will not work with your camera.

You'll need to use standard SD cards (usually those 2GB or less). But if you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for 4GB SD "non HC", with the non HC in quotes. Believe Transcend makes one.

Memory card error


The memory card could be too big. Some camera's can only use a certain size memory card. You will have to check your manual to see what the specifications for your memory cards. Hope this helps.

Menory card error


The problem is that you've probably got a SDHC (High Capacity) card which is not supported with the S2; it only supports SD cards (up tp 2G)

Hi. My Canon Powershot sd400 is telling me there is a " memory card error"...and "Card Locked!". Any idea how to fix this? Heidi


Hi!
You have to unlock your memory card. All memory cards have this small lock mechanism on the side.

Make sure that the slider is on the UNLOCK position. If it's already on the UNLOCK position and you are still getting the same error message, try to set it to LOCK, then set it back to UNLOCK position.


I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!
