I asked the above because some model's of older Canon cameras (such as the S400) would be repaired for free by Canon with this error.

But just noticed that you said the camera was new. If it's less than a year old Canon will repair it for free under the camera's warranty. They're very quick about it too, and usually include free shipping. Call 1-800-OK-CANON.

My cannon reads card is locked, but the card is not locked. How do I get the camera to read the card correctly?


The card might be bad. Try a different/new memory card and see if you get the same message.

A card that size is actually an SDHC card. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different. Many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

No that's not likely the problem. The new card is probably the issue, especially if it is 4GB or higher. 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 tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact 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.

It sounds like a low power startup. Are you sure the batteries that you are installing are good? If they're Dollar Store "Super Heavy Duty" batteries, that's likely your problem (shelf life has been exceeded).
Recommend trying to start the camera with premium alkaline, or best yet, rechargeable batteries (they have the most power, and save you money too!). If the above doesn't work, recommend contacting Canon, especially if your camera is less than a year old. The camera in that case would be eligible for warranty repair.

Memory Card Error


You could take the card to a store that has a Kodak picture maker machine (Walmart, etc.). From there, you can print your pics or even make a cd of them. The card may be faulty or just may not work in Canon cameras.

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


i think your card is write protected (lock).to unprotect(unlock) remove the card and you will see a switch located at the side. the arrow indicates whether your card is lock or not. switch it and try it again in your cam.
i hope i was able to help you. tnx!

Card locked


Dear codger19:

If your camera gives you "card locked" error messages with several cards and you KNOW that the cards are indeed not locked via the sliding lock mechanism, then your camera needs to be sent in for service as it has developed and electrical communications problem within the memory card control function.

I would first however try a hard reset by resetting your camera to the default settings, removing the battery and memory card for two minutes, and then replacing them. Retest the cards for the error message. If it still occurs then call 1-800-828-8080 for your options.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB
