Hi there,

Check to make sure you...
1) have the card seated properly in the camera.
2) make sure the card your using in the camera is not full.
3) make sure if it's an SD card that it's not physically locked.

SOURCE: memory card error

The problem seems to be that the card has been formatted incorrectly (probably by your computer, if you used it in a card reader?). Unfortunately the camera can't reformat it itself, and default computer formatting is incompatible. You'll want to download the program Lowlevelformat.exe from this website--http://olypan.quotaless.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8, install it, reformat your memory card with it, and the camera will be happy with it again.

There is a little slide switch on the side of the memory card. Good luck!

The internal BIOS battery has run down and is causing this error. Don't attempt to fix this yourself. Canon will fix this for you for free, with free shipping, regardless of your camera's warranty status. See and print out the following advisory:

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

A camera memory card should always be formatted IN the camera.
Do not format camera memory cards in a computer card reader.

If the card is formatted in the camera and after that the same error pops up,
you should replace the memory card and recheck.

The camera beeps when we put the card in.


The images you take with your PDC 640 camera are stored on a removable 3.3V SSFDC or SmartMedia 2 MB memory card (also available in 4 MB and 8 MB). Note: You must insert the memory card before you can turn on the camera.

If camera beeps is enabled, the camera beeps if the card is not installed and displays the [ ] message on the Status panel.

To insert the memory card:
1. Make sure the lens cover is closed (the power is off).
2. Open the memory compartment on the side of the camera.
3. Insert the memory card into the slot (gold side of the card facing the front of the camera).
Make sure the card is pushed firmly into the slot. Note: The camera prompts you to format the memory card if it is not formatted. The camera displays the format menu on the LCD viewfinder. Press the button next to Format.
4. Close the memory compartment cover.

If you can, try using a different memory card. Else, your memory card contact terminals inside the camera may have become worn, causing the camera to not recognize the card once it is inserted.

You'd better change a new memory card that doesn't have a problem to check whether it is matter of Canon PowerShot A480,or use another well camera to check if it is error of your memory card.

This is for the c713 kodak easy share, couldn't find it on the index.


YOU DIDN'T SAY, BUT I WOULD GUESS THAT WHEN YOU TURNED THE CAMERA BACK ON THE BATTERY WAS DEAD? THIS IS ONE POSSIBLE REASON TO LOSE MEMORY, EVEN THOUGH THE MEMORY CARD SHOULD HOLD YOUR DATA. YOU MIGHT POSSIBLY HAVE A FAULTY MEMORY CARD ALSO. ALSO REMOVING THE MEMORY CARD AND REINSERTING IT CAN SOMETIME CAUSE IT TO LOSE MEMORY. ALL POSSIBLES, BUT TRY USING JUST THE INTERNAL MEMORY OF THE CAMERA, WHICH IS SMALL, BUT SEE IF THE SAME THING HAPPENS DOING THIS. IF NOT, I WOULD SUSPECT THE MEMORY CARD IF IT HAPPENS MORE THAT ONCE. THEY DO FAIL ONCE IN AWHILE. THE KODAK HAS A SETTING THAT LETS YOU SELECT INTERNAL MEMORY OR SD CARD. TRY THAT AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS. IT'S BEST TO JUST GET IN THE HABIT OF DOWNLOADING PHOTO'S WHEN YOU GET BACK TO YOUR COMPUTER AND NOT TAKING A CHANCE AT LOSING SHOTS. I CARRY MY LAPTOP WHEN I'M AWAY FROM THE HOUSE FOR ANY TIME JUST FOR THAT PURPOSE.
