Question about Digital Cameras
I just purchased a 4 GB memory card for my Canon PowerShot SD450. Upon installation, the camera gives an error message that the card is locked, even if the card's switch is not in the locked position. Thinking that the card was defiective, I returned the card to the store to exchange for a new one. I encountered the same problem with the new card. Is there a limit as to the size of the memory card that this camera will accept?
Can you use the card in another device? Can you access the card un a USB card reader? If so, it is possible that the camera cannot handle a card that big. You would need to check the manual to see that it can handle a 4Gb card.

First of all, the 4GB card will never be able to work in your camera. Check on its face. It likely says SDHC, and SDHC cards as this format came out after your camera was designed (I know it looks exactly like a normal SD card, but it's not).
Now the 2GB card should work with your camera as it is a standard SD card. Remove the card from your camera. Look on the side of the card for the tiny slide switch, and slide it to the other "unlocked" position. Reinsert it in the camera, and see if that corrects the problem.
