  • staylor137 Nov 10, 2008

    I have a VPC s500 that I have for over a year..I have taken many pictures and have never had an issue. Today I took about 50 pictures with my nieces and newphews and all of a sudden I saw a message on the screen saying "Card Error". I tried to download the disk to my PD and it says that the disk is not formatted. Of course formatting it will erase all of the pictures on the disk. I loaded another disk to make sure it wasn't the camera. I had not issue with a different disk so I'm convenience that the original disk is the problem. PLEASE HELP. This pictures are very important to me and I would hate to loose them.

I have the Canon Powershot SD 750. I had the "memory card error" message when I turned on the camera and when I tried to insert the SD card into the computer (or hook the camera up to the computer, etc). Here's how I fixed it. I turned on the camera, clicked on the menu tab, click on the tools tab, scrolled down to format, and clicked OK and it worked. This is probably too siimple and may not help many people with more difficult problems, but it did work for me! If that doesn't work, I'd click on "reset all" and maybe that will work. You will have to reset any info you had (date and time, etc) but it might work. I have no idea about all the different types of Canon Powershot cameras but this worked on mine!

My cam says "memory card

If the camera displays Memory card error or No Memory Card when a memory card is inserted or any of the above error messages, make sure that the card is inserted properly. If this is the case, you may wish to Format the memory card in the camera using the Setup Menu option [Format] as shown below. Please be aware that formatting the memory card will remove any images currently stored on the card along with any other data. This can also be caused when images shot with another camera are stored on the memory card.

If after formatting the card in the camera the error persists, try another memory card. If this occurs with only the one card it is likely that the memory card is defective, if the error persists over more than one card the camera may require service. If the card appears to be defective you may wish to contact the memory card manufacturer.

Thank you!!

My camera is giving me a "no memory card" sign, but the card is inserted correctly. I have taken it out, cleaned it, and put it back, replaced the batteries, and everything. However, to no avail....

If the camera displays Memory card error, No Memory Card, or takes an abnormally long time to write an image to the memory card, when a memory card is inserted or any of the above error messages, make sure that the card is inserted properly. For SD card, make sure that the card lock switch is in the correct position and not stuck in-between.Try formating the memory card ,if after formatting the card in the camera the error persists, try another memory card. If this occurs with only the one card it is likely that the memory card is defective, if the error persists over more than one card the camera may require service.

Why does it say memory card error on the screen

Hi there, For few reason camera showing memory card error.
1. Memory card damaged.
2. your memory card finished is life time storage memory.
3 . virus infected.
4. If your memory card storage capacity more than camera support card then its also show to you. For example your camera support maximum 2 GB card, but your try to use more than 2 GB memory card.
I suggest your remove the memory card and scan by updated antivirus. After that, if not working then fomat it and try.
Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Samsung S630 Digital Camera, Card Error and Format Error

you have several options:

1. see in the specification details of your camera what memory card is compatible for camera. for S630 it is SDHC/MMC/SD card (Up to 4GB Guaranteed). see if you're using memory card within this capacity and type. If you're using a different memory card type and capacity, try to use memorycard that is compatible with your camera.

2. try to use memory card to other devcie like cameras, cellphones and other devices and if it still has error problem, your card may be the one defective. use other cards.

3. try to take pictures without using memory card. use only the internal memory of camera. if camera still display this error meassage, camera needs service.

hope these options solve one of your problems. c",)
