I keep getting a memory card error and card locked on my Power shot A530 how do I fix it?


If your camera uses SD cards then these cards have a very small lock switch on the side. Move it to unlock and try again.

Memory Card does not work in our Cannon 6.0 MP Power Shot A540. Message says Memory Card Error - Card Locked.


Hi,

Turn off your computer the remove the memory card. Look at the card, it should have a small tab on the side that could be slide up or down to lock and unlock it. Just adjust it opposite from its position now and it should be fine.

Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a canon power shot A720 is and the message card locked is showing.the card works fine in my computer and when i put in another card,same thing.card locked.any ideas?


If the internal memory has been used once you will run into this problem, remove the memory card from the camera, go into menu and locate "format" follow the prompt to erase all pictures in the internal memory. When you have completed this install the card, you now should be able to use the memory card normally.

How do I download photos from my Canon Power Shot A510 onto my computer? Can I download JUST the photos I want to see, or do I have to download all of them? Thank you


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.

You should also download ALL your pictures to your computer. You can delete those you don't want to keep. Then format the card in the camera. If you instead keep deleting some and shooting more, eventually you WILL have problems with the card.

Fuji FinePix A510, DPC-256 memory, card not initialized msg


I had to re-format the card losing all the photos but I had saved them in iPhoto so that was ok. I think the problem was caused by me incorrectly closing down after downloading them to iPhoto, so my fault and lesson learned.

Yes, Don't panic please.
Simply, just take memory card outside and attach it to your laptop or PC. FORMAT that memory card using FAT32 and you will get it working again.

LCD shows MEMORY LOCKED even thought card is NOT LOCKED!


Go thru all the pages on the camera setup in the camera. You may find a memory lock conrol. That is there to keep you from accidently erasing photos.

Can't format memory card in A510 Canon digital camera.


Have you used this card in the past? Is this a new card?

Is this card rated to be used with this camera. Some cameras can only support cards of certain sizes.

If the card is compatible, take the card to target or best buy and format it on a camera there and see if it works then put it back in your camera and see if it works after.

New San Disk memory card not working


vebhat,
Make sure the little slide on the SD card is in the right position, and if it's a high capacity SD it might not be compatible with your camera...
