Remove the SD card from your camera and look at it closely. You'll see a small switch which is used to lock the card to protect your data. You will most likely find that the switch is set to the locked position. If it isn't, slide the switch fully to the locked position and then fully back again before trying the card again in your camera.

If this fix has helped then please return the favour by rating my answer. If you still have a problem then please add a comment and I'll come back with further suggestions.

Turn off your camera and take out the memory card. Look for a small tab that can be adjusted. If it is currently down, adjust it up or vice versa. It should now get your memory card writable.

Make sure that the card is 2GB or smaller, the camera only supports SD not SDHC so it won't recognize a card larger then 2GB. If it's 2GB or smaller format it within the camera and then you should be good to go.

Remove the SD card from the camera. Slide the tiny switch on the side of the card to its other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card in the camera. But if you've already tried this, see this link for additional things that you can try.

Is the canon powershot sd450 compatible with windows 7 operating system


The camera doesn't care what operating system you have on your computer. It'll work fine with no computer at all, for that matter.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Can I use an SDHC 4GB memory card for my Canon Digital IXUS 55? If not, what is the second best?


The IXUS 55 uses SD cards, not SDHC cards. You can use any SD card, 2GB and smaller.

Memory card locked


When this problem occur you need to set the memory card unlock or not protected. Remove the memory card from camera and you can see a small button in the memory card, so you need to slide that to set the memory card unlock or not protected.

Cannot download pictures using zoom browser ex with my camera Canon SD450 in my Wwindows Vista laptop. Laptop doesn't open automatically the download window as in with XP. Also, I cannot open Canon Camera...


Camera direct to computer connections are notoriously problematic. (Lousy with bugs etc.) I avoid the problem entirely by using a card reader ($15-20) combined with Picasa3 (free software from Google). Remove card from camera and insert into card reader, connect to computer via USB and download images with Picasa3. Works great and is relatively cheap.

My Powershot 450sd camera is not reading 4GB SDHC


Apparently IXUS 55 is not compatible with a 4GB SD card. Use a 2GB and you would be fine.

My Powershot 450sd camera is not reading 4GB SDHC


SDHC memory cards are relatively new, and are sadly compatible with only the newest model cameras. For your model camera, recommend a maximum 2GB standard SD card. Fortunately, these days a 2GB card is very inexpensive.
