The A530 is designed to work with SD cards, not SDHC cards. You'll need to go with cards 2GB and smaller.

Memory card error could it be the little battery


No, but it might be that new 4GB SDHC card if you're trying to use such in an A530. Please see this article for troubleshooting steps for memory card error problems.

Brand new 4 GB Sony memory card. I get a card locked/memory card failure.


The A530 works with MMC and SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and won't work. You need to use cards 2GB and smaller with the A530.

Hi, Replacing my 256mb ram (1 slot) with 1Gb (2x512). The computer would not boot. Removing 1x512 memory the computer works fine. I put my old 256Mb back with the 512 Mb and the system only reported 256Mb....


Is the speed of the RAM the same mixing PC 133 and PC100 ram can cause problems working together. Also it sounds as if your board will only upgrade to a maximum of 512 MB total.

Canon camera won't accept SD memory card


It's a good bet that anything 4GB or greater is a SDHC card (look on the card, see if SDHC is written there). Your A530 was designed before the new SDHC format came out. Sorry, but your camera will not recognize this type of card. Recommend instead that you get a 2GB standard SD card. They're relatively inexpensive these days.

Memory Card Error - Locked


The likely problem is that the BIOS battery (NOT the rechargeable Lithium battery) has run low. This tiny, internal battery can be replaced without too much trouble by someone who doesn't mind disassembly of small parts, otherwise it's best left to a pro.

The battery is available from Canon or an official distributor, such as Huron Camera in Jackson, Michigan.

http://www.huroncamera.com/repair_parts.htm

Check the parts list. If you're squeamish, give Huron a call and arrange to have them fix it.

Memory card error


Try a smaller memory card size . I was trying to install a 4gb card and the guy at Kmart told me to try a 1gb card and that fixed the locked card error . No where in the instruction book did it address this problem.
