Question about Canon PowerShot A560 Digital Camera

I want to erase a video, but not "erase all images"

I want to delete some videos off of my full memory card, when I get to erase, it asks erase all images, does this mean it will erase everything on the card or just the video from which I entered the menu? Thanks

Careful, the way you're doing it would actually erase everything. Use that way only after you've downloaded all your pictures and videos to your computer.

The way to erase a single image or video is to go into picture/video review mode. Advance so that you can see the video you want to delete on your LCD screen. Then press the "trashcan" button on the back of your camera once. It may ask you "delete this video?". Select "yes".

How cani unlock my camera? i cant delete my pictures?


Erasing a memory card: when erasing a memory card, individual photos are deleted from their directories on the card. You can erase one or more user selected images at a time, or erase all images at one time. However, any images that you've selected to be "protected" through another menu option will not be removed during the erasure process.

Formatting a memory card: format a memory card sample menuFormatting, on the other hand, deletes all images from a memory card, even the ones that may have been protected. It recreates the file system including new directories and folders where images are saved on the card.

Unlike erasing, formatting improves the overall performance of a card.

Low level formatting: some digital cameras offer a low level format in addition to the standard format option. With a low level format, all data on the card is deleted. New directories and folders are also recreated during this process.

A low-level format of a high speed memory card helps ensure smooth continuous shooting at a constant interval. For optimal video performance, it's also recommended that a low level format be done sometime prior to recording.

In camera, not computer: though opinions vary, many recommend formatting a memory card in a digital camera, not via a computer. If you plan to use a memory card that was previously used in another camera, format the card in the new camera before taking any shots.

Hope this helps and just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

I have a 4 GB memory card on my Lumix camera. I have downloaded all videos and photos to my iPhoto on my MAC, but the memory card keeps saying full. There is nothing on the camera as far as I can see. ...


Hi, did you click the option to erase the photos from the card after you imported them into iPhoto? It could be that the images are still on the card and that iPhoto has just deleted the directory.
If you are sure that the photos are all on your Mac then the best thing is to use the camera's menu and reformat the card.
I have made a point of NEVER letting iPhoto delete the pictures but I delete them manually in the camera once I know they are safe in iPhoto. However, I am finding that I am no-longer deleting the photos from the card - when it is full I put it aside and use a new one - they are so cheap now - way cheaper than film is.

I cann't figure out how to delete photos from memory card. lost my manuel


The best way to delete all photos from the card is to format it. This prepares it for further use. FixYa is full of people asking how to salvage pictures from cards that haven't been formatted regularly.

You can download the manual from the manufacturer's web site at

I have a memory card but i cannot take any pictures because it is keep saying that my card is full... but i have no images or videos. I accidentally deleted the whole file on my memory card and thats when...


To correct this, you'll need to format the card in your camera using the camera's format feature. Go to the tools menu, and select the item showing the card's capacity. It will then ask you if you want to format the card. Select yes, making sure that "Low Level Format" is also checked. This WILL ALSO ERASE THE CARD! So format only after you've saved your photos to your computer.

I erased a couple video from my nikon camera on accident.


You have chance, take a try this recovery program called Wondershare Photo Recovery, a picture recovery tool which can recover deleted or formatted photos, videos and music. Get this program here,
Download Windows version
Download Mac version

The free trial version allows you to scan and preview the found photos, after they are found you need to pay to perform full recovery.

How to Do? Take the memory card out of your camera and connect to the computer(with this software installed) and start the scan process.

You should take care - before the deleted items are recovered, please don't save more files to the camera(memory card) where those data located in case they are overwritten.
