Question about Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera
I just got a sandisk 4.0gb memory card. everytime i put it into my powershot sd600, i got the memory card error and card locked message. i also cannot format (it is blacked out). i also do not have a card reader. my other memory card (kingston 256 mb), which i've had for years still works. please offer advice and suggestions!
I had the same problem. I am currently looking at trying to use a memory card reader to see if that will allow me to access the card.
It sounds like your card is locked. You need to unlock it. On one of the sides you should see a piece that can move back and forth. Move it from the position it is now to the other side. This should unlock your card. When locked the files are unaccessible to anyone. This also means that files on the SD card cannot be deleted while the switch is in lock position. When the switch is in up-position, then all files located on the card are accessible to anyone, and that files may be deleted from the card.

I don't know for sure, but since it is "grayed out," it MAY be that your camera can';t utilize a card that big (in gig's that is.)
Just a guess.
