Question about Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My Canon PowerShot Digital Elph will not recognize any new memory cards. It keeps giving me an error message that says, "Memory card error. Card locked." I have made sure the card is not in the locked position.

After inserting an approved memory card the following message shows up 'Memory card error' - what to do?


Try another new memory card, if it continues to give you an error go to the main menu and look for FORMAT, some times you need to format the card so the camera can recognize the new card.

Your older camera can only work with 2GB or smaller standard SD cards. It is not capable of recognizing the newer format 4GB or higher SDHC cards. Fortunately, old format 2GB SD cards are relatively inexpensive these days, and may be purchased on Amazon if your local store no longer carries them.

Cant format new 4 mb memory card on PowerShot sd700 is digital elph


If you cannot format the memory card using the format function of the camera, please connect the camera to your computer and use the computer to access your memory card and format fromt the computer.

Alternatively you can also use a memory card reader and connect the memory card to your reader and connect it inturn to your computer and format it from the computer

First, I'd give the connectors on the card a buff with a soft dry cloth.

When finished, check if the card has a write enable notch on the left hand side, make sure the notch is in the right position.

If the notch is broken, cover the gap with a little sticky tape, just like you used to with tape cassettes.

if that doesn't work

You could buy/borrow a universal card reader, and connect that to your PC. Works just like another hard drive.

If that doesn't work, try you card in another compatible camera, if it still fails, your card has a problem. The only thing left to try is re-formatting in the camera and that will clear all data from the card.

Inserted new memory card error message:memory card error unable to access format under menu


I'm guessing that you bought a new 4GB SDHC card. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different. Unfortunately your camera was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, but a SDHC card will not work with your camera.

You'll need to use standard SD cards (usually those 2GB or less). But if you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for 4GB SD "non HC", with the non HC in quotes. Believe Transcend makes one.

Canon PowerShot SD 630 Digital Elph "Memory Card Error"


Hi,
I'm sorry to tell that PowerShot SD 630 does not support SDHC cards over 2 gig.
If you want the camera to take a card over 2 gig then you are stuck standard SD cards.
The other camera does support the card because it's a higher model.


Regards.
