Yes...when you pulled out your card from the computer, you didn't use the "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your screen. Now your camera doesn't recognize the card and wants you to format it. If you do, it will be completely erased. Get yourself a separate card reader and use it to download your pics. When you plug it in, if it doesn't appear on the screen, open, "my computer"...it will be listed as a removable drive. That's probably where they were in the first place when you couldn't find them.

Canon XSi download busy


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


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 Picasa.

Not a good idea to post your phone # and e-address on this or any other site.

This question arrived on FixYa.

Problem is the camera firmware isn't compatible with the software possible needs a Canon free update or purchase a card reader and download your pictures stepping around the camera.

The computer will look at this card reader with the memory card installed as an external hard drive or memory device.

Download you pictures and then do a safely eject or eject before removing the memory card, once back in the camera remember to format the memory card this give the camera a nice clean surface to work with again.

Yes, you are correct. Many people think that the little slider on the memory card is a switch that does something inside the card. In fact, the slider is just that... a tiny plastic slide and nothing else. There is indeed a microswitch inside the camera, and it is necessary that the plastic slide operates this microswitch (which it should do in the 'unlocked' position) for writing to the card to be enabled. If the microswitch is not operated, the camera gives 'card locked' error.

Try a different card. If you find one that works, perhaps the tolerances are out of spec. If no card works, perhaps the microswitch is actually broken.

This is an old posting but I'd like to comment that once the memory card is used in a computer it won't read in the camera again until you format the memory card. Make sure you have all your pictures on the computer before formatting the memory card. A memory card must be formatted in the camera it is going to be used in.

You don't need any special software.

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, despite what I said first, you can use iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.
