Question about Canon PowerShot SD1200 IS / Digital IXUS 95 IS Digital Camera
Is your memory card in the camera. If it is there is your camera compatible with the card that you bought. Also do you check to make sure the card is not write protected. There is a small switch on the side of the card.

SOURCE: Memory Card Error
Chances are that the contacts in the card slot are either dirty or worn out. First thing I would try would be to try blow out the card slot. I suggest caned air, You could use a straw and Puffs of breath, but keep it dry. If that doesn’t work put a lint free cloth over a piece of cardboard about the same size as a memory stick. Be vary careful that it is not thicker then the memory stick. Dampen the end with Alcohol (Denatured Alcohol is best but standard rubbing alcohol might work in a pinch). I repeat, dampen with alcohol not dripping wet. Remove the battery just to be sure. Insert the swab into the card slot a half of a dozen times when you pull it out look to see if you see any residue on the swab. Hopefully you see dark stripes on the cloth. Let the camera sit with an empty slot (and no battery) for a hour before you try it again.
If all that fails the last chance (short of replacing the card reader) try to put some electrical tape on the memory stick on the side opposite from the gold contacts, be carful not to cover the contacts. Try one piece of type at a time and DON’T force the memory stick into the slot This will slightly increase the pressure on the contacts inside the card reader slot. If you have to resort to this be carful that the tape sticks completely and that it is neatly trimmed, you don’t want the type coming off inside the cameras. If this works you will need to add tape to all memory sticks used in this camera. I would NOT use any “taped” sticks in any other readers without removing the tape first.

First, make sure that the new memory card does not have the protect tab in the lock position. The new card must be unlocked and formatted before your camera will be able to use it. Also, make sure that the size card that you have purchased has not over shot the ability of your camera. I think that a 2 GB card is as large as you can use. Just because the card fits into the slot does not mean that the camera will address it!
