Plunge this camera SD memory card to your PC and see which type of error messages you are received. If it really needs to be formatted, go recover your SD memory card photos and files with SD card file recovery software and format it to restore its common use.
Also try to do antivirus scan to see whether this card is virus infected.
If these methods also do not work, go read more common SD card problems and solutions here to get some useful clues:

Try using SD Formatter in your computer to format the card, then try again in the camcorder.

Memory card error message comes up on the screen. I replaced the card with a new one but it didn't solve the problem. Help!

If the camera is older than 4 years old you can not use a large memory card in it. Try using a 2 gig card. That is the only fix that does not need a professional.

Canon rebel xt eos shows ERR CF. What do I do now?I tried a new flash card but still got the same error message. When I try to preview pictures I have already taken the screen says ¨no image¨. My...

Check that the pins in the camera that connect to the CF card are clean and not bent. You will probably need a good light and a magnifying glass to see into the card slot. If you can see a pin that is bent you could try straigtening it. BEWARE- turn off camera and use a non conducting "stick" ie cocktail or toothpick. Not sure for a Canon but a colleague paid £40 for a new pin assembly for a Nikon with similar problem.
Hope this helps.

Canon Legria HF200 SDHC Initialization problem

This totally sucks. I have a similar issue with my Canon Vixia HF R20 and I'm using a Lexar Pro 64Gb 133x SDXC card. When trying to initialize the card, its fails and says "Process terminated with error." It also says "check the memory card" when I first put it in. Write-protect is off. My other SanDisk class 4 SDHC card seems to work ok.
I could have sworn it worked before and I was able to transfer videos to my Mac on 10.6, but I can't remember for sure if I was using the SDXC card or just the built-in memory. Very frustrating.

Failure to initialize and use memory card SD/SDHC / canon fs100 camcorder

I had the same problem but fixed it by initializing the SDHC Card. It explains it in the manual. If you go to the menu and then down to the card it gives the option to initialize it. I did that for all my cards and now they work fine. Hope that helps...

Canon zr200 wont format new 4gb sandisk card...why?

The ZR200 is able to read a card of maximum of 2 Gbytes !!!

The 4 GB SD card it is a so called SDHC = Secure Digital High Capacity ! Every SD card with more than 2 G Bytes it is a High Capacity and the old hardware will not be able to use these SDHC.

If you do not have the software, you need to download the software from one of the following locations:

Official Canon Drivers and Software


After downloading is finished, unplug the printer USB and run the software that you downloaded.
The software installer will tell you when to connect USB.

Some Canon devices may not be Vista compatible and cannot work on Vista.

Memry card error

I asked the above because some model's of older Canon cameras (such as the S400) would be repaired for free by Canon with this error.

But just noticed that you said the camera was new. If it's less than a year old Canon will repair it for free under the camera's warranty. They're very quick about it too, and usually include free shipping. Call 1-800-OK-CANON.

Memory card error

Try a smaller memory card size . I was trying to install a 4gb card and the guy at Kmart told me to try a 1gb card and that fixed the locked card error . No where in the instruction book did it address this problem.
