You may have the card locked Find the small switch on the card to ensure it is not in the lock position.

SOURCE: Canon Power Shot A400 will only work with original Canon SD card

Make sure you are using an SD card and not an SDHC card. The SDHC protocol is newer than your camera, and your camera does not support it. SD cards have capacities up to 2 GB. Your camera should work properly with any SD or MMC card.

SOURCE: Can't unlock 4gb sd memory card

There's a tiny slide switch on the side of the card. Slide it to the other position and try again.

But one thing I've noticed is that you mention that the card is 4GB. As such, it's likely that this card is an SDHC card. There is also a possibility that your A540 camera is not recognizing the card as the SDHC format came out well after the A540 was designed.

If you're still having problems with your 4GB card, recommend trying again with a standard SD card (2GB or less). 2GB standard SD cards are very inexpensive, and can be found on Amazon for about $7 with free shipping.

And hang onto the 4GB card. It will come in handy again someday.

SOURCE: How to format an SD card on a Canon SD600 camera

Could be that you have the wrong memory card.
SD600 will only work with the old SD cards, but the SD780 will take the SDHC cards.
SDHC was intended to give 4gb or more of storage, while the old SD started as 16 mb.  Different cameras have different limits, but it is always best to assume that the practical limit on an SD card is 2mb.  Even if the SD780 will take the SDHC cards, it can be more practical to only carry 2GB SD cards and know that they will fit either camera

SOURCE: SD card locked

The lock switch on the SD card looks like a bit of plastic without any electronics. A bit like the write-protect tab on a 3.5" FDD.
So there must be a sensor in the reader / camera which detects the position of the switch. Maybe there is dirt in the sensor. The best way to check would be to try another SD card, but you could try blowing out any possible dirt and see if that fixes the problem. Can the camera write to the SD card?

Try moving the switch to lock and unlock status.

My SD card will not format


Get an SD card. Your 8GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot it is electronically incompatible and will not work with your camera. You need to use an SD card, 2GB and smaller.

Hi there
Check to make sure the cards write protect is off, take the card out of the camera, face the card towards you, look for a small white tab on the left hand side of the card, to unlock it push the tab down, it will be at the side of the card like this 59a6de4.jpg . Put it back in the camera and use the menu to format the card.
If the format fails then its a possibility that you will need a new card.


Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

New 2 GB Memory cards say cards full when installed


The SD card may have to be reformated. You should do this in the camera you want to use the SD card with. Do not format the card with your computer.

In you manual or on the menu of your camera there is a "Format" procedure. follow that and your camera will work again (REMEMBER) if you have images on the SD card down load them before you format the card.

Once you down load the images from your camera you should reformat the card to clear it in order to shoot more images.
