Generally when you see this either the card has an error or the computer does. This doesn't mean either one is actually bad. For example the small SD cards used in cameras may not read in the camera bt will in the pc. The fix is simply to format it in the device that can read it. Or if you have to use a differant pc to do that. Then when you put the card into the device it should read it or at least recognize it. If it now starts to recognize it then format it again in this device and it should be working.

If this starts happening more and more the card is failing and you should replace it before you loose your pictures or data. As to the cause of why I've heard a lot of suggestions. Static electricity (shock) or something powered down wrong while it was writing to the card and so on. Sometime the card will do this once and not repeat, other times it can get annoying.

Memory card error?


Hi, Check if other memory card is working on your camera. This is one way of checking if your memory card if still working or there is an issue wither the camera. Formatting Memory card **you should always format a new memory card or one from which you wish to erase all images and other data. ** Please note that formatting a memory card erases all data, including protected images and other file types. 1. (Set up) Menu [Format]
2. Select [OK] and press FUNC SET button.
Low Level format, recommended by cannon
Select the [Low Level Format] when you think that the recording/reading speed of a memory card has dropped. A low level format may require 2 to 3 minutes with some memory cards.

When i turn the camera on it says memory ard error


Hi,
If camera show Memory Card Error, Check whether the card is inserted properly or not. For SD card, check out the card lock switch is in the correct position and not stuck in between.
You can Format the memory card in the camera using the Setup Menu option (Format). Please be aware that formatting the memory card will remove any images currently stored on the card along with any other data.
If after formatting the card do not clear the error, 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.
Rating the solution is highly appriciated...Good Luck

Take out memory card from camera, turn it On and check does it show format error?
If yes, press Home, Memory option and format internal memory.
