Re: memeory card error

Many users have the same doubt. as per canons manual:
if any error is displayed when using your memory card do a low level formating of memory card.
but what to do for pictures in it? get a memory card reader from market. its very cheap. its also advisable to use memory card reader to transfer your photos rather than using direct connectiin to computer. bcz any lekage current from computer may damage the camera in some way.
after doing a low level formating then transfer photos inside memory card from system, put it in ur camera, then enjoy.
hope you are clear with your problem. please give a feedback.

I didn't get a memeory card with my new camera.

First, new cameras don't come with memory cards anymore. Make sure the slide switch on the side of the card is in the unlocked position. Then, format the card in the camera.

Memory card

Hi and welcome to FixYa.

Your camera will not work with an SDHC card. It must be an SD card.
Don't forget to format the card in the camera after you install it. Elsewise it won't work properly.

Thanks for coming to FixYa, and feel free to rate my solution.
