Card Error on a 4GB SDHC Sandisk Memory Card

Hi
Just purchased one of these and when I put it in my camera it comes up with 'memory card error'. I am not sure how to fix this or if I can format the card through my computer somehow? Any advise would be appreciated.
Regards
Lorrie

    I am having the same problem, but when I try to format the card, absolutely nothing happens. I know to right click it, and it says format, but I am not sure what else to try. Any ideas?

    I don't think that this multi-use card is accepted on my computer. It fits in the memory card slot, but I receive the same error message!! Why don't the people who work at the store know that it wasn't compatible with a Canon PowerShot!! I can't even download the photos I took all weekend long on to my computer with a USB cable!!! This is sad!!!

I went onto the BestBuys site and found a link for compatible memory cards - The SanDisk SDHC isn't compatible with the Canon Poswershot SD750!! Only a 2GB card will work. The Lexar SD and the Kingston Technology 2GB will.

Hello,
Please go on the computer and plug it in. When you see it in My Computer, right click on the removable disk (letter) and click format

Hope this helps

I have a Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera I got a new memory card it is a sandisk SDHC 8 GB but I am getting a memory card error message.... What can I do?


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. The second most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Please note that your particular model camera can only use up to 2GB standard SD cards. These are relatively inexpensive these days, and may be purchased on Amazon if your local store no longer carries them. There are also other common causes if the above didn't help, with troubleshooting steps for this problemlisted here.

I have a SanDisk SDHC Card class 4 4 gb and it won't work in my Canon Power shot SD630, I get a memory error that says card is locked, however card is not locked, what camera canI use this card in?


The SD630 works with MMC and SD cards, 2GB or smaller. It does not work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

Your SDHC card can be used in any camera that accepts SDHC cards.

A 4GB memory card will be an SDHC type. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

Memory card Sandisk 4GB gives error memory card


The S50 uses SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card, and will not work in the S50. You will have to confine your choices to cards 2GB and smaller.

Sorry for the extreme delay in answering your question: I've been trawling for old unanswered questions today and yours came up. The following answer will undoubtedly be way too late to be of use to you, but may assist others searching FixYa for an answer to the same problem.

You have been mistaking SD cards for SDHC cards. They look the same but are different, and your camera cannot use SDHC cards as it was designed before they existed. The limitation is due to the hardware in your camera so it cannot be updated to SDHC standards.

Your 2GB card was definitely an SD card as SDHC cards have a minimum capacity of 4GB, and 2GB SD cards are the maximum capacity which your camera can handle. Your only fix is to either stick to 2GB maximum capacity SD cards or to replace the camera with one which is SDHC compatible.

Sandisk memory card


Has this card EVER worked with your camera? Since you didn't mention the model number of the Canon, it's possible that you have a compatiblity issue here. Most 4GB SD cards these days are actually SDHC cards, which store memory differently (in sectors, like a hard disc drive, rather than bytes, like your main memory). All SDHC compatible cameras also support SD cards, but cameras sold before the SDHC standard was created will not support SDHC memory cards.

There's a chance that Canon has a firmware upgrade to solve this. You would have to look on the Canon USA web site for this, based on the model number of your camera.

Message: Memory Card Error - Memory Card Parameter Error on 4gb SDHC card


I recently bought a DMC-TZ3 and have been researching memory cards. Several sites sell cards with the camera and list the card type. I would suggest buying one of these cards. Any cards larger than 2gb must be SDHC type SD cards. There appear to different types of SDHC cards, 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0. Check out Wikipedia.org for a description. 2.0 cards are not compatable for devices developed prior to 2.0 so that may be the reason for the camera problem. So far I haven't seen anything that states what type SDHC card the camera requires. I found a computer memory site that that sells memory that they say will work. There may be others.
