Reformat the SD card with your computer. This will delete all data on the card. Do you use a usb cable to upload pics to your computer or put the SD card in a media slot? Either way, find the drive that corresponds to your SD card or camera in "My Computer". Right click on it and select 'format'. A new window will open with a check box for 'quick format'. Check the box and click OK. A prompt will appear stating all data will be erased. Click OK. In a few seconds, the card will be reformatted.

How do I UNPROTECT images on CANON S100?


On an SD card there is a switch at the side which can be moved to protect the card contents (locked) or permit writing to the card (unlocked). Just move this to the unlocked position.
If these images have been locked via the camera menu system, just go to the relevant area and unprotect them,

Use the menu to unprotect the image then you can delete. Also you can format the card but that will remove all the images on the card so make sure you've saved it elsewhere.

When i try to delete a picture it says that it is protected


Unprotect the picture first. Press MENU, select the Playback tab (right-pointing triangle), then "Protect images," then press the SET button. Select the image to be unprotected and press SET.

Full details are in the "Protecting images" section of the manual (page 129 in my copy). If you need a manual, you many download a copy (and more) from here.

How to delete protected images


If you want to delete everything on the card, the easiest way is to format the card. This will wipe out all images (and any other data as well) on the card, whether protected or not. The Format command is in the Setup menu. Details on page 32 of the manual.
To delete individual protected pictures, unprotect them first. From the Playback menu select Protect/Unprotect (the key icon). Details on page 84.

Trying to download my pictures from Canon Powershot A430 onto my new laptop Windows 7. Downloaded the disk and now trying without success to download my pictures onto the computer. Help??


Supported windows Operating system Windows 98 Second edition(SE)
Windows Me
Windows 2000 Service pack 4
Windows XP SP 1 and SP 2 Canon PowerShot A430 has no update about the new driver software for windows 7 Try doing this direct transfer in your computer 1. Connect the camera to your computer using the supplied USB cable of your camera. 2. Set the mode dial to (playback) and turn on the power.
The camera and computer will be able to communicate. 3. If there is no pop up window that has Canon CameraWindow, Click the [Start] menu and select [all Programs] or [Programs]. followed by [Canon Utilities], [Camera Window], [PowerShot-IXY-IXUS-DV 6] and [CameraWindow] 4. Download the images.
* Download the images using the camera or the computer.
* By default, the downloaded images are saved into the [My Pictures] folder. ** If the above process does not work you can just use the memory card of your camera and connect that on your laptop. (some laptop has built in card reader) The memory card works like a flash drive and you can just transfer files like transferring from one folder to another. ** Issue on the operating system compatibility.
