I would first try reading the card by inserting it in a PC connected card reader to see if it will recognize the card. If you can read the card via the PC, back off the pictures. Once you back them off, attempt to reformat the card. If you can reformat the card you should be able to use it again in the camera. Insert the card into the camera and check to make sure the card can be recognized and to check the camera does not have a problem reading the card. If it cannot be read, you will have to have the camera serviced. It should still be under some warrantee.
If the card cannot be read by either the PC or the camera, the card has been damaged and needs to be replaced.

    You have nothing to lose. Try the the driver at http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/co...
    Hopefully this works otherwise you will have to look at having the camera serviced at a qualified service center.

How to unlock a photo in camara


The protect function allows a user to protect a picture from accidental deletion. To unprotect a picture on your camera, scroll to the protected picture that you want to delete, then press the Menu button (the button to the right of the Play button.) Scroll down the menu and you should come to an option that allows you to Protect/Unprotect the picture. Since your picture is currently protected, deselect that option. You should then be able to delete the picture normally.

Alternatively, you could also format the memory card, however this deletes ALL photos and data you have on the memory card. If you are trying to completely clear the memory, this is the best way. After turning on your camera, simply press the Menu button, scroll to Setup, then scroll down to Format. Select Format, it will ask you if you want to format the memory card, or the camera's built-in memory. Format whichever one you want to clear, if you are using a memory card then your pictures are stored on the memory card. It will take a few seconds to format.

Hope this helps.

CARD FULL with 3 pictures


Have you tryed eraseing / formating it in the 740?

Make sure the camara uses the card instead of internal memory
it might be that its saveing the images into the cameras internal memory witch is probably just about 3-4 shots.

Says my memory card needs to be formatted but I have had this card for 4 months and have used it with no problems. All of a sudden it needs formatting? It says I'll lose my photos which is unacceptable -...


What you need to do is download your pictures to the computer hard drive. Once the pictures are on the hard drive you can format the memory card. Yes you will loose everything that's on that memory card but what you had on it is now on the computer. I'm amazed that you have gone 4 months without formatting the card unless you don't use the camera much. Not only that the card should have been formatted before you started using the camera, it's what makes the camera and memory card compatible. The memory card should be formatted each time you download pictures to the computer.

Do not use the computer to erase the card. This is the reason your camera no longer recognizes the card. Now you need to format the card in the camera to get it to work properly.

Camara says memory card full, yet when i transfer no pictures


Have you initialised the cards before use? if not you can do that by formatting the cards through Windows. Try it and see if that works. Use NTSC Format.

Digital camara and memory card


Basically picture files in memory card have corrupt data that's why computer doesn't recognize it.
HP recommends following action...
Close the HP Image Zone or HP Photosmart Software, disconnect the camera from the computer, and reset the camera. (can see this at HP Support)
2nd option is to find some memory card data recovery software on internet and use it to correct data files in memory card.
Thank you.

Suddenly started taking photo's in the raw formant


Raw format pictures can be viewed only using fileviewer software, the Adobe Photoshop CS software program can already read raw file pictures. To change settings just push menu, look for the settings you want to set up. All digicam are user-friendly. If you cannot activate the menu button then your unit has a problem and needs to be serviced.
