Hi Foxyfowle. Check out this website on the review of your camera.

A 32MB card can only store 9 shots. A 1 GB stores about 316. They recommend 2GB. With 7MP, you do need more storage. If you area leisure photographer any SD will do. If you like to take action shots you will have to buy at least a 2GB and you will have to choose the more expensive memory cards which have faster ratings. Meaning they can save the picture faster. But then that will empty your wallet just as fast. If you want to store files for long term, you need fo store them on Tiff formats. This means it uses up more storage space. If you store them on Jpeg format it uses less space but everytime you open, save or transfer the file, minor degradation happens. So eventually your picture will lose it's nice qualities. If your don't store for long term I think any brand of 1GB will do. If you want to store them use the 2GB. If you don't trust the cheapest brand in the market take the next one slightly higher.

The best and easiest way is to use a card reader and upload to a folder you create on the desktop. From there, you can move the pics anywhere you want. typrice_163.jpg

How do i unlock my memory card from my canon powershot A470


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.

My canon power shot A470 is writing card locked


Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Camera reading memory card error, cannot get it to work. Tried removeing the card and replacing batteries. Checked and it is not locked.


try formatting the card once on a pc and then plug it in your camera....if that does not help either, you'll have to try a different card.
