I can take pictures, and then sometimes it shows up as "memory card error." When this happens all my pictures are lost. I can turn it off and then back on and sometimes the pictures come back. Sometimes I have to turn it on and off a few times to get the "error" message to go away. I've bought new memory cards, but that didn't make any difference.
1 set date to 31-12-2030 23h59 and switch camera off.
2 wait two minutes, day will be 01-01-2003 and camera asks you to set the date
3 take away memory card
4 set the date to today
5 insert memory card again
Now your error should be solved.
Hi greenstina - I had the same problem on my PowerShot S400 as well as I couldn't reformat the compact flash when using the feature on the camera. The solution that worked for me was reseating a small battery (about the size of a watch battery) in side the camera. To get to it you have to take the case apart. I found this solution by googling and typing: powershot S400 E50 error I'm not sure if this site will allow me to add the web link - but this link had a picture of the camera and where the battery is located. http://www.pinoyhack.com/2006/09/14/canon-powershot-s400-fix/
It fixed my problem, but I do not know if this is a permanent fix. There seem to be a lot of complaints about this problem though.

If you have a memory card (e.g. SD card) that happens to be a "fake" (or counterfeit), it may give you this error. Often, such a card has less storage space than what it claims to have, e.g. it is labelled as an 8GB card, but it is really a 2 GB card, or have much less than 8 GB. Such a ("fake") card may have (internal) data that says it has (say) 8GB ... when you insert it into your PC. But if you test it, e.g. using H2testw (a free utility that you can download and run ... i.e. no need to install on your computer), it will show you the real size of the storage capacity. So, if your (fake) SD card happens to be full, your camera would be trying to store more pictures on it, and it would not be successful, or (sometimes, even worst), it will say it is stored, but it really is lost.
Sometimes due to virus attach or some unwanted files memory card shows such type of errors even there is memory space in it. IN this case just format your memory card with the help of a computer device. After formatting your memory card will not show such type of errors again.
Hi, Actually the camera is fine and the cause of problem is memory card, Mostly cheaper cards do this but the original cards don't. And as far as concern that you have lost many precious pics, No need to worry about it. Just install any recovery software on your PC and with the help of the software you can get back your pics, Secondly, shift all your pics on memory card in your PC and then format the card through camera, this will solve your problem.(Remember that run recovery software before you format the card if you need to get back your data from memory card) Thanks
If this camera uses SD cards then what may be happening is that the little lever that drops into the slot on the side of the card to indicate locked or unlocked is jammed in the locked position. If you shine a flashlight in you might be able to see where the pin is.
Sometimes memory card error happens without any notice. But luckily most of the time we are able to fix the memory card error and get back files on the memory card. Take a look at this guide: Fix memory card error and recover data good luck!
I had/have the same problem using L200 and SDHC memory card, called Samsung. Can't view certain pictures on camera or computer, camera freezes when viewing those certain pictures, green light flashing.
Samsung support told me that I needed to copy my (good) pictures to a computer first because a memory format will erase everything. Then format (menu->settings->format->yes) my memory card. Tried this just now and took some new pictures, so far so good.
You may have never formatted your memory card. This can eventually lead to errors like you're experiencing. First download all available pictures from the card. Next turn on the camera in preview mode. Press the menu button, then select the "tools" menu (second one from left). Go down the menu to the menu item stating your memory card's capacity and select it. Next select "Yes" to format. Note that this will also totally erase your card, so again make sure to FIRST download your pictures.
1. see in the specification details of your camera what memory card is compatible for camera. for S630 it is SDHC/MMC/SD card (Up to 4GB Guaranteed). see if you're using memory card within this capacity and type. If you're using a different memory card type and capacity, try to use memorycard that is compatible with your camera.
2. try to use memory card to other devcie like cameras, cellphones and other devices and if it still has error problem, your card may be the one defective. use other cards.
3. try to take pictures without using memory card. use only the internal memory of camera. if camera still display this error meassage, camera needs service.
hope these options solve one of your problems. c",)
