Question about Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera

Folder missing from SD card

We're having a peculiar problem here. The girlfriend has a Canon Ixus 75 with the standard SD card that came with it. The other day one (of three) folders containing the bulk of the pictures she's taken disappeared. It was not deleted, we can still see and access it if we read the card on my laptop's card reader slot. But the camera itself doesn't see it, and her computer doesn't see that folder while she's connected via the USB cable. According to her she was in the camera's print menu just prior to the folder going AWOL. Any suggestions?

Transfer the folder to your computer, along with any other pictures you want to save. To do this use a card reader, not the camera. Then click and drag the folder onto your desktop. After you will format the card using your camera (press menu then under the setup tab [yellow colored]) - this will delete all the pictures on your card so make sure they transfered onto your computer. Take a random picture on the camera to generate a new folder. If you want to put the pictures back onto the card so you can view them with the camera (not necessary), you should put the card back into the card reader, then open the dcim folder. you will see a folder which says Canon###, copy that name and make sure it matches the name of the folder you previously copied onto your desktop. click and drag the folder back onto the memory card to replace the existing folder in there (the random picture you took will be over written, so if you liked it transfer it first). That should have covered it...i know i made this very wordy, sorry, but i'm used to explaining these things to my parents who don't even know how to turn on their camera.

My canon digital camera ixus 75 card is locked how to procedure to unlock


Look at your memory card. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

My canon ixus 75 reads card locked


Take a look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Sd card


Sorry, but your camera was designed before the 4GB SDHC card came out. Although they look exactly the same as a standard SD card, they are not. Your camera can only use standard SD cards (2GB or less).

Missing photos from an SD card


The card has likely become corrupted. But it should be no problem at all to get the photos back, but you will need to use recovery software in conjunction with a card reader. There's plenty of freeware to available to use for this. Here are some examples. Again you'll need to use a card reader with the software. They're very inexpensive these days (check Amazon) so that shouldn't be a problem either. Finally AFTER recovering your photos, format the card IN YOUR CAMERA to rejuvenate it and setup the correct Canon file folder format on the card. This should also help prevent this from happening again. This will also totally erase the card, so only do this after recovering the photos.

Screen says card locked. how to unlock? Canon ixus 75


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 have already tried this, see this link for additional things that you can try.

My canon ixus80is


The Digital ixus 80is is fully SDHC compliant so should work with all SDHC capacities. There are no reports yet of incompatibility with the larger capacity cards as long as they have been supplied from trusted sources.

Every SDHC compliant camera which I've recently dealt with has only had problems when fitted with cards from suspiciously cheap suppliers. If an SDHC card is too cheap then it's almost invariably counterfeit and what's inside the card does not match the label outside, often they're plain low capacity SD cards.

As long as you stick to major brands from trusted sources you should be OK but bear in mind that the 16GB SDHC variants slow the camera functions down significantly compared to using an 8GB model.

I hope that you've found my answer to be of use and ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.

Canon ixus 75 memeory card


On the SD card itself there is a little tab that slides back and forth. It should be closest to the the end you put into the camera first. If it broke off, then the camera is stuck in lock mode. If this is the case, it's not worth trying to glue something in its place...just invest in a new one.
