Your camera is not compatible with SDHC type cards. No 4gb cards for you. It looks like 2gb (non SDHC) cards are the biggest you can use.

I have a canon ixus 700. i've tried to insert a new SanDisk 4 GB memory card. the menu says the card is locked when (i've treble-checked) it definitely is not locked. i read from others that...


According to the specs on Canon's web site, the IXUS 700 works with SD cards, not SDHC cards. SD cards are limited to 2GB in size (there are rare 4GB SD cards, but they tend not to work in SD devices).

Of course, it's your call as to how definitive any manufacturer's web site touting their product might be.

Hi there,I was wondering if a 4GB SDHC card was suitable for a Cannon IXUS 4.0 or not? I can't seem to format it?


SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible. It is often difficult to find out the maximum capacity card that a camera will use, as today's memory cards are much larger that those available when the manual for the camera was written.

Will the canon ixus 30 use a 8GB SDHC memory card, as it shows card locked in display


Your camera will accept a maximum SD card capacity of 2GB. It simply isn't capable of handling anything of a larger capacity and in particular is incompatible with the more technically advanced SDHC cards.

Your fix is to either replace your camera with a later model or to stick to using SD cards with a maximum 2GB capacity.

Says memory card locked-it is not -the card works fine in other camers


What type of memory card are you using? If you have an SDHC (high capacity SD) card, it will not work with this model. This model came out before the SDHC protocol was developed. You can use an SD card, maximum 2GB, or MMC card.

Maximum memory size of sd-card for canon ixus 40 ????


Check to see if your 16GB card is an SDHC card. If it is, your camera is not compatible with SDHC. (The SDHC protocol was developed after the SD300 came out in 2004).

My Powershot 450sd camera is not reading 4GB SDHC


SDHC memory cards are relatively new, and are sadly compatible with only the newest model cameras. For your model camera, recommend a maximum 2GB standard SD card. Fortunately, these days a 2GB card is very inexpensive.

Most likely it is not compatable. The SDHC cards are a very different animal to the regular type of cards (which most cards up to 2 GB are). I wouldn't open the package until you are absolutely sure. All info I've found on your camera indicates up to 2 GB (non SDHC only) maximum.

Largest capacity SD card for Pentax Optio S5N


The maximum supported size is most likely 2GB SD Card. Cards with 4GB and more are following a new (incompatible) standard called SDHC (SD High Capacity), SDHC cards work only in devices specifically supporting SDHC. The Optio S5N uses the old SD standard where 2GB are the maximum size.
