Memory card error

Over the weekend i bought and installed an 8g dane-elec on my canon a620 camera. when i turned it on it said memory card error. i thought perhaps that the sd card was defective that i returned and replace it with a lexar 4g sdhc card. but the same error is still showing. i tried locking and unlocking the lock mechanism on the card but to no avail. what do you think is the problem?

The memory card could be too big. Some camera's can only use a certain size memory card. You will have to check your manual to see what the specifications for your memory cards. Hope this helps.

Can I use 8GB SD cards in my Canon Powershot A620 camera? I thought I once read that it will only support up to 2GB SD cards.


The A620 uses MMC and SD cards. SD cards max out at 2GB in size. Larger cards are actually SDHC or SDXC cards and will not work in the A620.

The A620 works with MMC and SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they will not work. You need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller.

Bought new sdhc memory card and it reads memory card error please help


The A620 is designed to work with SD cards, not SDHC cards. SDHC cards will fit into the slot but are electronically different. You'll have to stay with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

First, make sure your camera can accept SDHC cards. If the camera says the card is locked, move the slide switch on the side of the card.

Some cameras cannot handle over 2GB memory cards. If it works fine with 2GB card - stick to that. If some other A620 you know operates with 4GB card, take yours to repairs.

Put new SanDisk 4GB card in Canon A620 and get Memory Card Error


The A620 came out in 2005, before the SDHC (high capacity) protocol had been introduced. The A580 came out in 2008 and is compatible with the SDHC protocol. The A620 is only compatible with the SD protocol, and maximum capacity under this protocol is 2MB.

I put a brand new SanDisk SDHC 4 GB memory card in and it says "memory card error; card is locked".


I also own an A620, but unfortunately I also learned the hard way that SDHC cards are not compatible with this camera. The A620 was designed before the newer SDHC format came out, thus although they look exactly the same, your camera will never work with these cards. Your camera uses standard SD cards (2GB or less). There are some standard 4GB SD cards, but they are very rare these days, and costly.

Your camera has a board with the SD card slot board and electronics to record and retrieve images. This board can be replaced and should cost about $100 to repair.

The spec for the SD card format is going to 2GB but the Kodak C330 not compatible with 2 GB SD memory cards.

But try an firmware upgrade. Maybe the supporting now the 2 GB memory cards.
Why download firmware version 1.07?
This firmware version improves memory card compatibility and provides general performance updates.
