This problem is so common, especially with Canon Powershot cameras like your IXUS 210, that there's a whole blog about it here:
http://hubpages.com/hub/Canon_Powershot_Memory_Card_Error_Fix


It seems that the camera gives this error when it has problems reading/writing the card. The fixes they suggest there are to do with cleaning the contacts. It's pretty easy to clean the contacts on the memory card, but much harder to clean the camera. I don't suggest following the instruction to spray cleaner into the slot... that sounds like a recipe for getting it all over the inside of the camera!


I would start by cleaning the memory card's contacts. You can either use a solvent such as Methyl Hydrate and a Kleenex, or you can actually rub the contacts clean with an eraser (or if you're British you can use a solvent such as Methylated Spirit and a tissue, or rub the contacts clean with a rubber). It's probably worth looking inside the camera too, to see if any of the contacts are obviously bent in the card slot. I've seen that in a Nintendo DS which is similar. If a contact is bent, nothing's going to work unless you can get it back in place.

Is this a lens error or an error with the memory card? People seem to see this error for both cases.

If it occurs while recording a video or taking a photo:
  • Save your photos & videos onto your computer, then reformat your memory card.


If it is a lens error:

Best of Luck!

My camera deleted all of my pictures! how do i get them back?


First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download Asoftech photo recovery software, you can follow this article for detail steps

Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

I connected my cable to transfer pictures from my canon 100 ixus but it showed connection error. What does it means?

Troubleshooting the camera displaying Communication Error when connected to the computer via USB. If the camera displays "Communication Error," when trying to download images the main cause for this error is that there are more than 1000 images stored on the memory card. It is recommended if there are more than 1000 images on the memory card, that you use a card reader to acquire the images, or to delete images off of the memory so that there are less than 1000 images to download from the memory card.
If this is not the case, there are not 1000 or more images on the memory card, try reconnecting the camera to abnother port on the computer, try another cable or another computer. This error can also display when connecting to a direct print printer. Please check with the printer manufacturer for more information on this error.

Photos were deleted, can I still recover it? Canon Digicam Ixus 860-15 Model. Is it much better to just bring it to cannon service center to assists me fixing it


Take no more pics before you've recovered your photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good photo recovery software options that may help you recover your photos. This article reviews and outlines ways to get back deleted photos from digital camera.

Unidentified images


I have the same problem with my Canon Powershot SX110IS. images dissapear with the notation "unidentified image". I brought my camera in to a local camera shop, and they were able to save the lost images. They told me I had an inexpensive, low quality memory card that is causing this problem. I upgraded to a high quality one and haven't had the problem since.
