Make sure the gold contacts on the card are clean and, as far as possible, that no foreign matter has got onto the corresponding contacts in the camera.

Did you delete the pics when the card was still in the camera or did you take the card out & put it in a reader attached to a PC?

If the former, then I suggest you get yourself a card reader for your PC - they're very cheap now - and use that to copy any remaining pics from the card to the PC.and then format the card in the PC. Then re-format it AGAIN in the camera. If you can't read the card with a PC card reader then you can try to format it (you'll lose any pics on it). If that doesn't work then the card has probably developed a fault. Best to bin it & buy a new one. They're so cheap now it's often not worth wasting time trying to get money back from where you bought the camera.

If the latter and the card cannot be read by the PC then the situation is the same as above. If it can read it then copy all remaining pics from it to the PC then reformat it on the PC. Then try it again in the camera: reformat it in the camera and see if it works. If not then there's a good chance the camera has developed a fault.

Canon Power Shot SD450 Digital Elph camera started to say "no memory card" when there is Sandisk 2GB in there? What can i do?


2 things the memory card and the recovery of your files.
Your camera was produced in 2005 and in those days only MMC and SD cards could be used. A few years later the SDHC came and 2011 SDXC came. devices are downward compatible. So newer cameras can use also SD cards. But older cameras can't use newer memory cards. Even a SDHC can't be used in your camera. And although I managed to buy a 4GB SD card a few years ago, now they only produce SDHC and SDXC cards. Yes be aware a 1 GB or 2 GB card now ar most of the time SDHC.
Check your card, when it says SDHC, don't try to us it, it won't work.

Then the photos from your parents. It looks we never have taken enough pictures.
When you have old memory cards, please don't use them till you checked if there are still "deleted" pictures on them.
Deleted is most of the time just clearing the pointers to the files. The files in most cases stay on the card.
Try to download some software from this site:
Memory Card Data Recovery
Then run the software, when you have a memory card in a memory card reader and see if it can find "deleted" pictures. Be aware when you use a card with "deleted" pictures, the space that came free, will be used to put new pictures there. SO don't use the cards till you did recover everything to the computer.

There are more free recover program's. I have one form Sandisk, I got it for free with a sands memory card. Login on that site to and see if they still have free program's for Sandisk users.

Transferred pics from computer to card and the camera will not display them - all are jpeg just like what the camera takes. These were from the camera but I wanted them back on the card also.


once out of the camera & deleted form the card, the camera will not display any of the images because it does not have that function. even jpeg images being the same format cannot be viewed.

Camera will not hold new pics. Even when internal


Could be the memory chip isn't working right. They are very sensitive to improper handling. I prefer to use the usb download cable rather than removing the card and inserting it into the computer. If you touch the gold contact fingers on the card, static electricity can damage it, personal experience. Some replacement chips have a lifetime guarantee, which I have used.
Try a new mem card, they are sort of cheap.
Also if you use the program that came with the camera, it might reset the functions on the chip.
Hope this helps.

Card not initialised


You can recover the missing pics off your card get, there are some image recovery programs available on the net and most camera shops will offer a card recovery service but dont format before you get pics recovered.

Not formatting a card is bad. They need to be formatted on a regular basis because deleting images from card does not remove them and the next image taken only overwrites the old ones.

Downloading pics to memory card


a virus is present in your pc, infecting the memory card. I suggest that whenever your card leaves the camera and used in any computer or lab, always format the card in your camera not in pc cause this will gonna erase all the pictures including the virus. virus in cf cards wont destroy your camera but it will make it operates like crazy. Make it a standard operating procedure to always format card inside the camera.
Photolab will be able to read even a corrupted card.
