Question about Canon PowerShot SX 200 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Hi, I have a canon sx200 and yesterday I took my memory card - Kingston 8GB - and got some pics printed at one of those albertsons machines and since then when I try to take a picture it says " card locked" on the screen and it won`t work (it won`t let me erase the pic either...) how can I fix it? Did the machine do it to my card? (I have used teh same machine before and never had this happen) Thank you, Bianca

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Same problem here on a Power Shot A3150 IS with a 8GB micro SD.
All worked well, then bom, only unidentified images. But the camera doesn't tell you unless you review the images...
Tried 5 recovery softwares dso far, some recover the images into a bmp, which then also says unidentified image... Even the camera can't read them.
And if I take a movie, I get an ASCII chaos in the folder the images are recorded in. No solution so far.

The likely reason this keeps happening is that these cards weren't formatted in the camera when you first got them. However, don't do so just yet as formatting also erases the card. If you are using a memory card, take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that are available to help you recover your photos. This blog article reviews and outlines several of the better ones. Now AFTER you've recovered the photos, format the cards IN THE CAMERA USING THE CAMERAS FORMAT FEATURE. Look for it, it's located under the "tools" menu (look for the item stating the card's memory capacity). This should rejuvenate both cards, and prevent reoccurrence.

Problem with SD card, Canon Ixus 100 IS


Could be the camera isn't seeing/reading the card properly.

I'd check the contacts on the card, and in the camera are clean, free of grease & dust.

Rather than do anything drastic, Have a look at the Canon website and or contact them, Details below.

Deleting or formatting won't make the data in memory card erased permanently.

Those lost pics are still stored on the memory card, it's just invisible or inaccessible. Only the FAT or NFTS table is erased (the information about where those data were saved), but the real data are still intact there in sectors of the hard drive.

So as long as those photos are not overwritten by new pictures, it's highly possible to recover them. And the MOST Effective way is to rely on some format recovery programs.

Try Asoftech Photo Recovery program, which can recover pictures after deeply scanning the memory card to look for lost pics you accidentally deleted or formatted.

My kingston 8gb cards only show 1.87 gb and will


The 'FAT' file-system uses 16-bit arithmetic, and thus is limited to about 2GB in size.
The 'FAT32' file-system uses 32-bit arithmetic, and thus can easily format an 8GB device.

So, be sure to choose 'FAT32'.

Also:
Click Start
Right-mouse click My Computer
Choose Manage
Click Storage
Click Disk Management (local)
Does the card show a 1.87GB "partition", plus 6.13GB of "unused" space?
If so, then delete that "small" partition, and then create a new partition that "spans" the entire 8GB.
Then, FORMAT that partition.

Memory card error


Hi michellefwon,

Try the card in your computer using a SDHC card reader to see if it will read your picture files. If that doesn't work then you'll have to shop for data recovery software on line. Ontrack Data Recovery is a very reputable recovery company. They offer recovery services by sending them your card or by purchasing their do-it-yourself software.

Hi shenicamangr,

From inside My Computer, open the DT then from the menus at the top click on File, New and Folder. Type a name for the folder. Now go an find the picture files you want to copy. Right click on a file to copy (or press Ctrl-A to highlight all files) then select Copy from the menu. Go back to the DT and open it. Right-Click on the new folder you created and select Paste from the menu. All of the files should now be in the new folder.
