Hello!
YOu can remove the memory card and then connect to the memory card reader and goto the my computer then right click the drive created by windows and then you can directly format it.

You can format it also using the camera. go to menu and find the tools and then the format menu.

I bought a new SD card for my powershot SD600. I have tried two different cards and they both say they can be formatted. What is the problem?


Bet it's a brand new SDHC card.
There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

Two things to try: 1. Go into the camera menu and find "reset" to get the camera back to factory default settings. 2. With the new card installed, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions. If the new card now works, you will probably need to do the same with the old card but download the pictures first using a card reader if necessary because formatting will completely erase it.

I get a memory card error even though it has a card installed

Issue: Memory card Error
Solution: Try a different memory card and/or Reformat memory card PowerShot A70


Formatting a CF Card You should always format a new CF card or one from which you wish to erase all images and other data.
caution_a70.gifPlease note that formatting a CF card erases all data, including protected images and other file types. Please check the contents of the CF card before formatting it.
  1. Turn the power on.

  2. Press the <MENU> button and select [ tools_icon.gif(Set up)] using direction_arrow_lt.gifor direction_arrow_rt.gif.

    format_menu_1.gif

  3. Select format_icon_a70.gif(Format) using direction_arrow_up.gifor direction_arrow_down.gifand press the <SET> button.

    format_menu_2.gif

  4. Select [OK] using direction_arrow_lt.gifor direction_arrow_rt.gifand press the <SET> button.

    format_menu_3.gif

    • To cancel formatting instead, select [Cancel] and press the <SET> button.
    • The capacity of the CF card displayed after formatting will be less than the rated capacity of the CF card. This is not a malfunction of the CF card or camera.


  5. Press the <MENU> button.

  • If the camera does not work properly, the inserted CF card may be malfunctioning. Reformatting the CF card may solve the problem.
  • When a non-Canon brand CF card is malfunctioning, reformatting it may solve the problem.
  • CF cards formatted in another camera, computer or peripheral device may not operate correctly. When that happens, reformat the CF card with this camera.

The screen say's memory card error, card locked, but it is a brand new card. I unlocked it and it still says error


I think you have a HC card, Any SD memory card about 2GB runs at a different compression rate to the 'normal' SD cards. ie High Compression. If you do have a larger card in an older camera it will not read, The camera cannot access the information, and it will not work. If it's a 2GB or smaller, try formatting the card - Go to your review menu, press setup and chose format from the list. This should sort it out.

My canon sd600 says Memory card error?? any


I'm afraid that's exactly what it could be. A bad card which can't be formatted. Occasionally digital warnings can get it right, Occasionally.

Memory cards don't last forever and depending on it's use and treatment they can die sometimes somewhat prematurely. Just removing the card whilst it''s being accessed by the camera can ruin a card for good. Just check that the record inhibit tab isn't in place on the card. It's a little tab which when closed will stop the pictures stored on it from being accidently erased. Although usually the camera will say protect and not error.

I'd be inclined to try formatting the card in another camera if you can borrow one for a few minutes. Whatever you do, don't try formatting it in your computer. Or borrow a known good card and try it. If it works it would appear your card is dead.

When i insert my memory card it says "memory card error" i have tried different memory cards but it says the same thing


Is it a new 4GB memory card? If so that might be your problem. The card would likely be an SDHC card, and your camera was designed well before the SDHC format came out. Your camera can only use standard SD cards (2GB or less).
But if the card is less than 2GB, it could have become corrupted. In this case you could try formatting the card in the camera to see if this would rejuvenate it. This will also erase the card. See this post if you wish to first recover those pictures.
Finally, if this is occurring with multiple cards, and is also saying "card locked" even though the tiny slide switch is in the unlocked position, then see this post for a possible remedy.

"Card Locked" error is false!


Remove card from SD600 camera. Locate sliding switch on side of SD card and move from lock to other (unlocked) position. That ought to do it. Compact flash card is another issue.

Memory card I?O error


Try using USB SD-card reader to access the files. If it fails, you need a new card.

Otherwise, try formatting the card, and test it by filling it up with test videos and test images.
