My PowerShot SD800 IS reports "memory card error" and does not want to do anything. However my PC could read most of the pictures with the Dynex reader. Some pictures were not readable, some corrupted. I have the 2 GB card reformatted. The PC has no problem with it, but the camera still reports the error message and is not doing anything.
What is the magic problem?

I have a canon A590 it always says the memory card is locked. Please Help we are going on vaction....


Look at the memory card. SD 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 that doesn't work, try another card.

BTW, if you're about to go on vacation, get a second memory card anyway. Would you drive a car without a spare tire in the trunk?

My a590 says no memory card


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the switch on the side of the card, or the switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

If this is occurring with multiple cards, and is also saying "card locked" even though the tiny slide switch is in the unlocked position, then see this link for a possible remedy.

If you make sure that the memory card is properly seated and the batteries in and the battery door properly closed, then it should power up. If still no success, it may be the micro switch that closes when the battery door is closed.

Canon a590 Card (not really) Locked


Remove the SD card from the camera. Slide the tiny switch on the side of the card to its other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card in the camera. But if you've already tried this, see this link for additional things that you can try.

Memory card error


Am assuming that you verified that the slide switch on the cards were all in the unlocked position.

If so, the A590 is still a relatively new camera. If the camera is still under a year old, then it's still under warranty. Call 1-800-OK-CANON to resolve the issue.

Can't download. Get "Communication Error" message on Canon A590


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
