It's a lost cause. The A540 works with SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in devices not designed for them. You need to stay with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I have a Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera I got a new memory card it is a sandisk SDHC 8 GB but I am getting a memory card error message.... What can I do?


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common cause is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position. The second most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Please note that your particular model camera can only use up to 2GB standard SD cards. These are relatively inexpensive these days, and may be purchased on Amazon if your local store no longer carries them. There are also other common causes if the above didn't help, with troubleshooting steps for this problemlisted here.

Cannon Powershot A540 SanDisk SDHC 4 gb I insert the card and receive a memory card error. Can't format


Hi,

A 4 gb memory card is beyond the capacity of your Cannon A540. It is too large. I would stick with a 1 gb card in that camera.

A540 says "memory card error" " card locked" but 4gb card is not locked - can access card on card reader - copy on and off. a540 works with 2gb sd card no problem. please help?


The A540 works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work in this camera. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Memory card error - can't format card


If it is an SDHC card your camera is too old to support it.  You need to get an older-style SD card.

Asking what to do?


8 GB is more than your A540 can handle. You can check with Canon, but I'm pretty sure that the max that your camera will understand is 2GB. Additionally, your 8GB card is most assuredly an SDHC card and not a standard SD card. Your A540 also does not understand SDHC format. The max card that you should buy for that model camera would be a 2GB standard SD card. These are very inexpensive these days and run about $6, shipping included:
