There is a little slide switch on the side of the SD card that will lock it.  It could be that it got bumped the last time it was inserted, or the memory card could be defective.  I saw this happen with a SanDisk memory card that hadn't been removed from the camera.  Removing the card and sliding the lock switch back and forth, then re-inserting finally solved the problem.  It was a bit disconcerting when it happened.  I would recommend that you get a replacement memory card to use if it starts to happen repeatedly.

Canon digial camera power shot SD430 says memory card error when switching on after putting new card in.


What type and size memory card? The SD430 works with MMC and SD cards, 2GB and smaller. It will not work with higher-capacity SDHC cards even though they will fit into the slot.

How do you erase all images on a Canon IXUS 1100 HS camera?


If all the pictures are on a memory card, format the memory card. If all the pictures are in the internal memory, remove the memory card (if installed) and format the internal memory.

Formatting wipes out all information from the memory card or internal memory and prepares it for further use. This is better than deleting individual pictures and will help prevent future troubles.

My canon digital camera ixus 75 card is locked how to procedure to unlock


Look at your memory card. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

My camera says memory card locked. How do I unlock this feature


Remove the memory card from the camera, look along the one edge for a tiny switch, slide it towards the contacts to unlock the card. The switch that is in the furthest position from the contacts is in the locked position to prevent deletion of photographs, now! if the card is already in the unlocked position slide it back and forth to reset, if this fails replace the card.

Will my canon ixus 60 take a 16gb memory card


Yes. The IXUS 60 was designed to work with SD cards. Cards larger than 2GB are actually SDHC (the HC stands for High Capacity) and will not work in this camera.

Canon ixus 50 unable to delete photos from card


If the card is a removable memory card, take it out and use a adapter on your computer.  Format the card on your computer then put it back into your camera.  It should be ok after formatting on PC.

MEMORY CARD LOCKED


Unlock it. SD cards have a little slider on the left side (face up) that locks and unlocks it.
