Question about Canon PowerShot A1100 IS Digital Camera
The first thing that comes to mind is to make sure you have it in the right direction. You should have the metal connectors of the CD card facing AWAY from the batteries. Even if the card fits the other direction, it is a must to have the connectors the right way.
Some CD cards are affected in use by whether or not they are locked or unlocked. Even if you don't remember locking the card, those things can be slid pretty easily. Check to see if perhaps your card got moved to the "locked" position. (The lock is a miniscule little slider to the left of the label on most SD cards. It should be at the TOP to be unlocked, unless your brand has printed directions that differ on the card itself.)
Also, you can always try turning the camera upside down with the battery door open. Don't hit it, but if there was a little piece of dirt, it would hopefully fall out.
The SD cards need a little quick push to lock into place, and need a quick push to unlock as well.
If you check on all of these, and it still isn't locking into place, it is possible that there is a bent pin on the SD card. I haven't experienced a camera that had a problem with the SD slot yet in 8 yrs of owning digitals, but I have had bent card pins...
I hope one of those helps you.
