SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

THE CAMERA WILL NOT EXCEPT THE SD CARD,SAYS IT IS UNUSABLE.bUT IT IS BRAND NEW


All memory cards need to be formatted to the camera they are going to be used in. By doing this cleans the card and makes it ready to work properly in your camera. After using the card and downloading the pictures to the computer the memory card should be formatted again to give a clean card to put more pictures on. The SD cards also have a lock so you need to make sure that this lock is in the unlock position before installing it in the camera. On the upper left corner you will see a small white switch make sure this has been slide forward toward the top edge (towards the gold contacts) Insert it in the camera and close the door see picture.

From the manual:

Installing SD Memory Card

Your camera has a memory card slot that enables you to insert any "SD" compatible memory card up to 8BG. Adding a memory card will allow you to increase the capacity of your camera before you have to transfer photos and videos to your PC. Install the SD memory card as below:

  1. Locate the Memory Card slot within the battery compartment.
  2. Insert the Memory card into the slot in the correct direction. (see the sketch below)

  1. Push the card in until you feel it "click" into position. The top of the card should be flushed with the surface of the camera. An icon will appear on the LCD screen after you turn on your camera.
  2. Once the external memory card is inserted into the camera all the images taken with the camera will be stored on the card.

Note:

  1. Limited internal memory is provided for test images. The image will be deleted when camera power is turned off. Please download the images before power off .SD memory card is required for normal use.
  2. An external memory card is required for normal use. Your camera supports any compatible SD memory card (up to 8GB).
  3. If there is a photo in the internal memory when you insert the card into your camera, a "Copy to card" message will appear on the LCD with Yes or No options. On selecting 'Yes' the photo will now be copied to your card.
  4. Formatting will delete all data on the SD memory card including protected data.

  1. Don't remove the SD card during formatting as this may damage the card and render it unusable.
  2. When your card is full, download the media on the SD card to your PC and delete the photos and videos from it in order to continue using your

When i insert my fujifilm 2gb memory card into model jv100 all i can do is look through my pictures i cannot delete or use anything else ,and a icon comes up in the centre of the screen when i look at my...


A few things but the first that comes to mind is that there is a little slid lock on the upper left side of the memory card. This lock needs to be pushed forward towards the gold contacts to unlock the card. Another problem could be tat the 2gig card is full of pictures and needs to be downloaded to your computer. Once this is done the card will need to be formatted to clean the old pictures off and make the card ready for new pictures. I suspect when you take this card out (2gig) the camera defaults to internal memory and yes everything will work as it should until the internal memory is full of pictures as well

I have a Toshiba 8 GIG memory card. I used it


When you removed the card from the computer, did you remember to use the "safely remove hardware" procedure? Also, you should never wait until your card is full before downloading...you run the risk of the card becoming corrupted. Your options now...1. Get a separate card reader and see if you can download your pics with it.2. If not, take the card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak Picture kiosk machine. Insert your card and you should be able to see all your pics. From there, you can make a cd of them. Then, format your card in your camera to return it to factory specs.

Can't initialize SanDisk Ultra II for S7000


try formatting it in the computer, then initializing it in the camera.
It's possible that the camera can only handle memory up to 1Gb. Try a 1g CF card.

Can't initialize SanDisk Ultra II for S7000


It looks as though the camera cannot support memory as high as 4GB. Capacities above 2.2 GB require that your camera supports "FAT32", and S7000 does not support FAT32.

Memory card


First do not panic! It is possible to recover your pictures if you take care. Take the card from the camera (powered off) and if it has a "write protect" tab then lock it now. Do not try and write anything to the card or you risk causing more problems.

You can either plug in you camera to the PC as it should appear as a “Removable Drive” or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a FREE utility that will recover your photos from the following link:

http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec

If you need something a little more "user friendly" then you will need to buy the software. If you search the web for photo recovery software you will find many.
One I have used successfully is RescuePro that used to be bundled with some Sandisk products. Now you can get it from the link below:

http://www.lc-tech.com/software/prwindetail.html.

You can try the demo to see what you can recover before buying.

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to the card until you can recover your pictures to your PC safely!

Try using a card reader until the problem can be resolved with your camera.
Format your memory card once you have the images backed up. Try another memory card to see if it works in the camera. If another one works, it is probably a faulty card, but if it doesn't you may need service for your camera.
Call Canon tech support if this doesn't work.

Try reading the card independent of a camera i.e. on a computer or a photo kiosk to determine if the card is readable damaged
