Question about Canon Cameras

1 Answer

When I inserted the SanDisk micro card into my Canon Digital IXUS 55 camera, the card bent (kinked) along its weakest line - at the small notch of its 'lock' micro-switch. The data can no longer be read, even though the card was correctly engaged in its slot.. Is there a way to recover the images stored on it? Thanks, Michael

    Best I know, data recovery services deal with hard drives and the like. Anything that SanDisk can do - directly or indirectly?

    Please advise how to Google this to find the right if not the best place.

    Most data recover places handle San disk and flash memory. Not just hard drives,





    The comapny Sand disk would not be able to help you recover your data.

    But if not then it will need to be taken from its plastic shroud and recovered differently. there are plenty of services on the web that offer this. We do not here at fixya, But do hope this answer was help full

I have a canon ixus 700. i've tried to insert a new SanDisk 4 GB memory card. the menu says the card is locked when (i've treble-checked) it definitely is not locked. i read from others that...


According to the specs on Canon's web site, the IXUS 700 works with SD cards, not SDHC cards. SD cards are limited to 2GB in size (there are rare 4GB SD cards, but they tend not to work in SD devices).

Of course, it's your call as to how definitive any manufacturer's web site touting their product might be.

Will my canon ixus 60 take a 16gb memory card


Yes. The IXUS 60 was designed to work with SD cards. Cards larger than 2GB are actually SDHC (the HC stands for High Capacity) and will not work in this camera.

Card is locked of CANON IXUS 960IS


There is a little slide switch on the side of the SD card that will lock it.  It could be that it got bumped the last time it was inserted, or the memory card could be defective.  I saw this happen with a SanDisk card that hadn't been removed from the camera.  Removing the card and sliding the lock switch back and forth, then re-inserting finally solved the problem.  It was a bit disconcerting when it happened.  I would recommend that you get a replacement memory card to use if it starts to happen repeatedly.

Memory cards does not work


First remove battery and card and look in your flash card slot for any bent pins. If you see some, don't fret. Use a small/skinny jeweler's flat screwdriver to bend the pin back as close as possible. Take your time and use as much patience as you can muster (take a breather in between if needed).
It doesn't have to be perfect, just as close as you can get it. When it's there, take your flash card and "SLOWLY" insert it. The card itself should fine-align the pin. Remove the card, and verify that the pin is still straightened. If so, reinsert the card and try it out.


If there are no bent pins, then the internal BIOS battery has likely run down and is causing this error. Don't attempt to fix this yourself. Canon will fix this for you for free, with free shipping, regardless of your camera's warranty status. See and print out the following advisory:

Also, see the following link for tips on contacting Canon regarding camera advisories. This particular post concerns a CCD advisory, but the tips are the same:

Card locked canon powershot sd750


Check the switch on the side of your SD memory card. It is a small sliding switch which has a lock position. Sounds like the switch is in the "locked" position. Unlock, reload card, & you should be good to go. If not, the card is probably damaged.
