HC or High Capacity is not compatible with this camera. You have to buy a memory card which says only "SD" and NOT "SDHC". Cards of 2Gb and less are usually "SD". Cards of 8Gb and more are always "SDHC" for technical reasons. Cards of 4Gb can be either, but the SDHC kind are much more common, because they're cheaper and newer.

Canon sd600 wont read 16gb memory card


No. The SD600 works with MMC and SD cards, which max out at 2GB. It will not work with SDHC cards such as your 16GB card.

I bought a new SD card for my powershot SD600. I have tried two different cards and they both say they can be formatted. What is the problem?


Bet it's a brand new SDHC card.
There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

I have a cannon power shot SD600. I bought a memory card, and the camera says memory card error. I can't even fomat the card because the function won't high light.


Did you get an SDHC card? The SDHC protocol was developed after the SD600 came out, and the SD600 is not compatible with it. Use SD cards with a maximum of 2GB storage capacity.

Will my Canon SD600 suport a SDHL flash memory card?


I assume you mean SDHC.

The SD600 was designed to use SD cards. The SDHC specification is backward compatible, meaning that SD cards will work in SDHC devices, SDHC cards will not work in SD devices. This is a hardware incompatibility, not updatable in firmware.

Sorry, but that's just the way it is.

How to format an SD card on a Canon SD600 camera when the menu says "memory card locked." The memory card is in the unlocked position. When we put the SD card in another Canon camera (SD780 IS), it works...


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

Sd600 poweshot can it take a 4gb or 8gb memory card? i was planning to buy duracell SDHC 4GB card with 10MB /sec transfer speed


No, unfortunately the SD600 was designed before SDHC format cards were introduced. The max card size that you should buy for your camera is 2GB standard SD. If you look around very hard, and if you're very lucky, you may still be able to find a 4GB standard SD card. But these are rare these day (everyone has gone to SDHC at that size card), and it will be at premium price.
