Question about Canon PowerShot A510 Digital Camera

Can't format memory card in A510 Canon digital camera.

I have A510 Powershot digital camera. Camera keeps saying "No Memory Card" even though it is inserted and memory cards works perfectly in my moms camera which is also a A510. When you try to format the memory card in menu/setup it seems to be turned off and when you scroll down to where it is it skips the format.

Have you used this card in the past? Is this a new card?

Is this card rated to be used with this camera. Some cameras can only support cards of certain sizes.

If the card is compatible, take the card to target or best buy and format it on a camera there and see if it works then put it back in your camera and see if it works after.

My Canon Powershot A480 says the SD card is full even though it is not. How do I fix this?


You most likely have a problem with the memory card reader inside the camera. Have it repaired,it's not expensive at all and it's the only option for correcting this problem. This place is excellent and the most affordable for Canon Powershot repairs (it's all they work on): www.CamerasAndParts.com Go to their site and you should find the email address for them. Send them an email, they'd be the ones to help you with this problem since it's a Canon. Good luck

Did you maybe copy some jpegs onto the card from another source? If the contents of the memory card is no longer need, take the card back out and run a quick format through the computer

I have inserted a new PNY optima SC HC memory card and window in camera says "memory card error". Does the canon not take this card?


Correct. The A510 uses SD cards, not SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work.

It says memory card error


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked" or "memory card error". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the switch on the side of the card, and the switch internal to the camera. Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

Yes, Don't panic please.
Simply, just take memory card outside and attach it to your laptop or PC. FORMAT that memory card using FAT32 and you will get it working again.
