Question about Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera
MY Canon A540 has always worked fine. I was on vacation in London, using a 1GB card and many of my photos vanished from the camera while some single shots were duplicated four times. Other photos showed up cut off on the lower half with a solid gray color. Was it the card or the camera ??? I keep testing & it work fine, however I do not know what to trust! Help please, Rich
Hi Rich, This sounds like a problem with filing system of the memory card and is indicative of forthcoming bigger problems. Try remove from the camera and slip into a memory card reader attached to a PC. You have to try and recover as much photos as you can. Thereafter, it may be required to format the memory card either via PC or the format command in the set-up/menu of the camera. Further you can use diagnostic utilities (PC side) to determine if the memory has developed any bad areas. Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turns up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
