Try formatting in a PC. If fails then card is bad ! Return for exchange. If works in the camera, great.
( or you may need to format it in the camera too.)

"cannon powershot sd870 wont turn on when memory


Please check the memory card with your PC and check if there are any corrupt files within. If so remvoe and format the card , Also so a virus scan and confirm that the Sd card is clean.
Now insert and check. If however the card is found in good condition in the first place then there are errors in the interface to the processor in the camera which might need a technical help from the Canon-service center.

I have a Conon Powershot S1 IS camera and bought a Transcend Compact Flash 4GB memory card and when I insert in into the camera a red light flashes at the menu and set buttons?


Have your new memory card inserted into your PC to test for any virus. Format the memory car.
Please check if your cannon is adaptive to the 4GB (check the instruction manual) if the card shows the same fault now after inserting.
Use another card into the camera to confirm if the card slot is faulty.

Memory card is locked for Cannon Power Shot SD790 - how can I fix the problem?


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the switch on the side of the card, or the switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

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.

Memory card error?


Hi, Check if other memory card is working on your camera. This is one way of checking if your memory card if still working or there is an issue wither the camera. Formatting Memory card **you should always format a new memory card or one from which you wish to erase all images and other data. ** Please note that formatting a memory card erases all data, including protected images and other file types. 1. (Set up) Menu [Format]
2. Select [OK] and press FUNC SET button.
Low Level format, recommended by cannon
Select the [Low Level Format] when you think that the recording/reading speed of a memory card has dropped. A low level format may require 2 to 3 minutes with some memory cards.

FORMATTING


Hvae you tried taking the card out then looking on the camera for any stored images.

A lot of cameras will automatically use the storage card when it is inserted instead of the camera memory.

You maybe out of luck and lost all your pictures.
