Issue: Memory card Error
Solution: Try a different memory card and/or Reformat memory card PowerShot A70


Formatting a CF Card You should always format a new CF card or one from which you wish to erase all images and other data.
I get a memory card error even though it has a - caution_a70.gifPlease note that formatting a CF card erases all data, including protected images and other file types. Please check the contents of the CF card before formatting it.

  1. Turn the power on.

  2. Press the <MENU> button and select [ tools_icon.gifI get a memory card error even though it has a - format_menu_1.gif://i.fixya.net/uploads/images/direction_arrow_rt.gif" alt="direction_arrow_rt.gifI get a memory card error even though it has a - format_icon_a70.gifbr />


    Select format_icoI get a memory card error even though it has a - format_menu_2.gif(Format) using direcI get a memory card error even though it has a - direction_arrow_lt.gifss=or direction_arrow_down.gifand press the <SEI get a memory card error even though it has a - format_menu_3.gif

    format_menu_2.gif

  3. Select [OK] using direction_arrow_lt.gifor direction_arrow_rt.gifand press the <SET> button.

    • To cancel formatting instead, select [Cancel] and press the <SET> button.
    • The capacity of the CF card displayed after formatting will be less than the rated capacity of the CF card. This is not a malfunction of the CF card or camera.


  4. Press the <MENU> button.

  • If the camera does not work properly, the inserted CF card may be malfunctioning. Reformatting the CF card may solve the problem.
  • When a non-Canon brand CF card is malfunctioning, reformatting it may solve the problem.
  • CF cards formatted in another camera, computer or peripheral device may not operate correctly. When that happens, reformat the CF card with this camera.

SOURCE: It says that my "Memory Card is full" even though

1. Make sure you are saving all your images to what is called the "external" memory, not the tiny internal memory.
2. Format your memory card using the format feature on your camera.

Memory card error


Dear jk_cibergirl:

It is likely that some type of corruption has happened to your memory card. Try reformatting the card in your camera to correct any problems. If that works then you should be fine to take more pictures from this point. If not, you may need to get another memory card. Check your memory card manufacturer for warranty information.

Just a few tips to help you avoid this problem in the future:

1. Even though your computer can format a memory card, do
not ever do so from your PC. Your computer lays down a
different type of file table than your camera, which can lead
to data corruption.

2. Always format the memory card in the camera it will be
used in after each downloading session AND even when
using a brand new card right out of the box for the first time.

3. Do not share cards among cameras - even if they use the
same type of card - even if they are the same camera model!
Consider your memory card to be camera specific.

4. Do not place your camera close to strong magnetic fields
(e.g on top of a television)

5. Lastly, even though your camera has a single image erase
button, do not do what some do and fill your card up and then
go into the playback mode and erase a few images just to
take a few more new images. This almost certainly will lead
to data corruption on your card. Download your images and
reformat the card to take additional shots.

If you need to recover any lost images from that memory card, you can give it a try by simply downloading free software from the internet (such as Zero Assumption software available at www.z-a-recovery.com), connecting your memory card to your computer via a card reader, and running the program on the card reader volume.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB
