Question about Canon PowerShot A1100 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

I just removed the SD card to view some pictures and now when I put it back in it will not latch and stay down. I have tried two other cards as well and none will latch and stay down. They do not seem to go down as far as I am used to seeing them, like something is in the slot but with a light and magnifying glass I do not see anything in the way. Any ideas? TX DW

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.

I have a Nikon D5300. I can see the photo count number increasing, but I cannot view the images and they are not going on the SD card. Where are they? The SD card is not full.


many small Nikon cameras have memory to store images ON THE CAMERA. If you have a memory card installed that the CAMERA CAN READ it will put images on the card. if the memory card is corrupted the camera will not use it.

First Backup all IMAGES on Memory Card to COMPUTER make sure you saved ALL images. This is IMPORTANT.

After you SAVED all images you PUT Memory card back in camera and FORMAT it (Format is in TOOL Menu that looks like a wrench)

Now if you can take an images and it saves to memory card you are done. To see if they go to MEMORY CARD. Turn off camera and remove MEMORY CARD and Check.

If it STILL does not work you may have a defective memory card.

When I turn my camera on to view pictures, the red light on the camera in the bottom right corner stays on and I'm not able to view my pictures on my memory card. Can you help me identify the problem?


If one card works and the other doesn't then it sounds like you have a defective SD card. Nothing you can do about this but buy another one and toss it.

This is why you should backup all your photos off the camera and onto permanent storage media.

When i remove the sd card to upload photos to my computer my new pictures are not there but are when the sd card is in the camera?


There are two possibilities that I can think of. 1) The SD card is full. You will need to copy the pictures off the SD card and onto your computer, then format the card. You can probably do this in the camera, but MAKE SURE you have copied the pictures you want to your computer because the format will erase everything. 2) The SD card is write protected. Look closely at the SD card there is a little slide switch that "locks" the SD card so that your camera cannot put any pictures on it. This slide switch must be in the unlocked position (or NOT locked).
Hope this helps.

This should do it for you: Insert the SD card into your laptop or computer. In the SD card go to "New Folder" name that folder "DCIM" in the "DCIM" folder create a new folder. This one you will name "101KC190" (I'm pretty sure you have the Kodak Easyshare 190, correct?) Now, transfer all of your pictures into "101KC190." Insert the SD into your camera and it should work. email me if you need to kylejwoody@hotmail.com

remove the memory card, when facing the label of your MMC, you should notice a Latch at the left part of it, un lock it by sliding the latch up and down.

Can't find pictures on SC card


Try transferring the pictures to your computer then erasing the copies on the sd card, then putting the pics back on the sd card from the computer and then of course back to the camera.

Sounds like you are not tackling this the right way.

The proper way is to connect your camera using a USB to mini-D connector direct to the laptop. Use the Import facility to transfer the images to a folder.

Failing that, you don't Copy and Paste, you Right Click Drag.

Insert the SD Card into the laptop slot or a Card Reader to USB. Open File Explorer. Click on the SD card at the bottom of the left hand pane. Highlight the images you want in the right pane, either individually, or multiple (hold down CTRL key, click each one, or hold down SHIFT key, click beginning of block and then end of block of images). Now the clever stuff, Right Click and Drag the images to the folder on the left of the two panes, release the Right Click and choose Copy Here, or Move Here.

I would transfer all the images to your laptop, Format the SD Card in the Camera, and then transfer any images back to the camera if you need, but really, the SD card should be for capturing the images and the computer hard drive for storage, plus backups to Memory Sticks or External Hard Drive.

You can also try using Windows to Repair the Drive (SD Card). Right Click on the SD Card, Properties, Tools, Check for Errors.
