This question comes up several times a day here in the camera section at Fixya. But please note, it's very hard to troubleshoot individual software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headaches of bad software in the first place?

Please don't take this as a sales pitch as it's not, but please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of an inexpensive card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue:

How can I adjust the camera to take quicker pictures? It seems to take too long to actually get the moment I want to take a picture of.


Hi, Unfortunately that's a well known issues with the Canon SD1200. There's no way to fix it as the issue is the engine built into. The way equivalent model to it in this years line up, which doesn't have that issue is the Elph 100.

Hi. I have used an older model ELPH camera its quite nice. It sounds that you are using the cable from the camera to the computer to download the photos. I do not know why the error occurred (probably a weak battery ) . Have you tried taking the memory card out of the camera (push it once and it pops out), then insert it into a special SD adapter connected to the computer by USB? Image google sd adapter usb if you do not know what that is. Some computers have the SD slot built in the side. After that on a PC click Start/My Computer where the card should appear as an external storage device. Click on that and on any folders within and your photos should all be there. Select all (Ctrl+A) and copy/paste them into a folder of your choice.

I have heard of this happening if the card was not formatted on your camera. Be sure you retrieve what you can from the card, then format it in your camera. It may solve your problem. The higher capacity SD mem chips (>2GB) sometimes don't display with some computers. I had to use a separate USB SD reader because the computer would not read the 4GB chip when I put it in the SD slot.

Canon powershot SD1200 IS says Memory Card Error


You probably just need to format the card in the camera. This will completely erase it so download any pictures you want to save first.
