Question about Canon PowerShot SX40 HS Digital Camera 2GB Memory Card Camera/Lens

1 Answer

I keep getting an insufficient memory error when recording video on my Canon camera. I have a 4GB Micro SDHC card. It'll be completely empty and I'll get the error after shooting 2 minutes. Even when I take the resolution down from 1920 to 1280.

Instead of deleting the content on the card, format it in the camera and see if it works. Also, have you tried another card to see if the problem is with the card or with the camera?

What kind of memory card is required for my Canon Powershot G3? I am asking more for brand or type of card needed. I will be taking pics and video. Thanks`


The G3 can use SD, SDHC, and SDXC cards. As far as your camera is concerned, the only differences between them are size. SD cards go up to 2GB, SDHC cards go from 4GB to 32GB, and SDXC cards go from 64GB to 2TB.

The speed of the card won't matter much for shooting stills. For videos you'll want at least Class 4. As for the brand, stick with any of the major brands and you'll be fine.

I can not get our memory card to format. it says card error. we are using a microSDHC Ccard with adapter 4gb


Is the camera compatible with SDHC? If it can only handle SD memory cards this card is not readable in the device. It will show on the camera whether it is compatible with SDHC. If it doesn't have the logo, take it as the card won't work and you'll need to get a normal SD card.

There is a theoretical maximum of 2GB for SD memory cards, SDHC start at 4GB and go up to 32GB.

Simply put, if your camera is quite old, it won't support SDHC and therefore is limited to a maximum of 2GB memory card.

Canon Legria HF200 SDHC Initialization problem


This totally sucks. I have a similar issue with my Canon Vixia HF R20 and I'm using a Lexar Pro 64Gb 133x SDXC card. When trying to initialize the card, its fails and says "Process terminated with error." It also says "check the memory card" when I first put it in. Write-protect is off. My other SanDisk class 4 SDHC card seems to work ok.
I could have sworn it worked before and I was able to transfer videos to my Mac on 10.6, but I can't remember for sure if I was using the SDXC card or just the built-in memory. Very frustrating.

Just put in new san disk 4gb memory card and receiving error message - memory card error. I unlocked memory on card itself (that little gray sliver that goes up and down) What gives


I'm guessing you bought a new 4GB SDHC card. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different. Unfortunately your camera was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, but a SDHC card will not work with your camera.

You'll need to use standard SD cards (usually those 2GB or less). But if you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for 4GB SD "non HC", with the non HC in quotes. Believe Transcend makes one.

Camera will not accept any memory card over 2GB. Keeps saying "Memory Card Error"


Most new 4GB and larger cards are SDHC cards (look on the card). Although they look exactly the same as a standard SD card, they are not. Unfortunately, there is no way that these cards will work with your camera, as it was designed before the SDHC format came out. As you've dsicovered, 2GB and less are standard SD cards, and will work with your camera.

There were a few standard 4GB cards produced a few years ago, most notably by ADATA (I have one that I use in my A620). Unfortunately, these are rare now, and are somewhat expensive if found on eBay.

Cannot install 4GB card into TL220. Do I have the


According to Samsung's page on this camera, the following memory can be used:

External Memory(Optional) : Micro SD (up to 4GB)
Micro SDHC (up to 8GB)

4 GB is acceptable, but I think you do not have the correct type of card. You should be using a Micro SD or "Micro Secure Digital" (up to 4GB capacity) or a Micro SDHC or "Micro Secure Digital High Capacity" (up to 8 GB capacity) card. This is very different from an SD or SDHC card. These Micro cards are very small (smaller than your thumbnail) and are often packaged with an SD adapter card. Regardless if sold with or with out the adapter, the package should say Micro SD or Micro SDHC on it somewhere.

Whwthwr Canon IXUS 700 can accept Micro SDHC card


Sorry, but according to Canon's technical specs, your camera was designed only for use with standard SD card format. SDHC format will not work with it, and will likely give you a memory card error.

Canon camera won't accept SD memory card


It's a good bet that anything 4GB or greater is a SDHC card (look on the card, see if SDHC is written there). Your A530 was designed before the new SDHC format came out. Sorry, but your camera will not recognize this type of card. Recommend instead that you get a 2GB standard SD card. They're relatively inexpensive these days.

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.

MEMORY CARD


I would think that as long is it is a sd memory card then it would be compatible since the camera uses the sd card and the 4gb is for photo storrage
