Canon Power Shot SD450 Digital Elph camera started to say "no memory card" when there is Sandisk 2GB in there? What can i do?


2 things the memory card and the recovery of your files.
Your camera was produced in 2005 and in those days only MMC and SD cards could be used. A few years later the SDHC came and 2011 SDXC came. devices are downward compatible. So newer cameras can use also SD cards. But older cameras can't use newer memory cards. Even a SDHC can't be used in your camera. And although I managed to buy a 4GB SD card a few years ago, now they only produce SDHC and SDXC cards. Yes be aware a 1 GB or 2 GB card now ar most of the time SDHC.
Check your card, when it says SDHC, don't try to us it, it won't work.

Then the photos from your parents. It looks we never have taken enough pictures.
When you have old memory cards, please don't use them till you checked if there are still "deleted" pictures on them.
Deleted is most of the time just clearing the pointers to the files. The files in most cases stay on the card.
Try to download some software from this site:
Memory Card Data Recovery
Then run the software, when you have a memory card in a memory card reader and see if it can find "deleted" pictures. Be aware when you use a card with "deleted" pictures, the space that came free, will be used to put new pictures there. SO don't use the cards till you did recover everything to the computer.

There are more free recover program's. I have one form Sandisk, I got it for free with a sands memory card. Login on that site to and see if they still have free program's for Sandisk users.

It will not format a 4gb SanDisk SD card


Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. The DX6490 works with SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to go with SD cards 2GB and smaller.

Memory card Sandisk 4GB gives error memory card


The S50 uses SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card, and will not work in the S50. You will have to confine your choices to cards 2GB and smaller.

New 4GB SanDisk card won't format in my Hp M425 digital camera!


Hi,

First be aware that a 4GB card may well exceed the capability of this camera as older cameras have a max capacity of 2GB because of the filing system that is used which is known as FAT.

A 4GB card is FAT32 and this causes problems because older cameras cannot recognize that system.

However please have a look at my FixYa Tip on the subject which gives a complete breakdown on the issue.

In some cases you can format a card with your PC and it may work with the camera.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Can't initialize SanDisk Ultra II for S7000


try formatting it in the computer, then initializing it in the camera.
It's possible that the camera can only handle memory up to 1Gb. Try a 1g CF card.

Can't initialize SanDisk Ultra II for S7000


It looks as though the camera cannot support memory as high as 4GB. Capacities above 2.2 GB require that your camera supports "FAT32", and S7000 does not support FAT32.

JUST USED MY CANON 950IS FOR THE FIRST TIME USING A SANDISK ULTRA II SDHC 4GB CARD. DOWNLOADED FIRST PICTURES ONTO LAPTOP USING THE MICROMATE WHICH CAME WITH MEMORY CARD. WHEN I'VE PUT THE CARD BACK IN...


Sounds like a card problem. Did you format the card in the camera when you first got it? If not, recommend formatting it using the camera. Look for the format option in the camera's menus. Note that this will also erase all images from the card, so make sure all pictures have been first downloaded to your computer.

Sandisk SD Card - disappearing pictures?


1. First of all, don't do anything further on the card. Don't format it, run scandisk or other "repair" software and don't try to shoot more pictures on it. This is very important if you hope to recover your information.

2. Second, observe the golden contact on the card, sometimes these can get dirty and make bad contact - if so proceed to clean them carefully with a Q-tips or similar and some ethyl alcohol (not alcohol drinks!) or isopropyl alcohol (many cleaning solutions like magnetic head cleaners) to thoroughly clean each contact. Avoid spilling and leaving drops on the card. Dry the card well before inserting it again. Never use water or other cleaning solutions or you'll ruin your card.

3. Next, go to download
PhotoRec - it's the best picture undelete program and it's free. Once downloaded, follow the instrutions. Of course you should try to recover your data BEFORE testing the card with formatting, writing etc.

Hopefully you'll find your pictures and next time please download them after each photo session!!!
