The memory card in the camera may be missing, failing, locked (see if the lock slider is in the wrong position), or not formatted properly. Try removing the card and verifying that another device (camera, laptop, desktop, card reader, printer, etc) can read it.

If its fine in other devices, copy off any pictures that are important, and format it. That might resolve the issue.

Another quick test is to see if the camera will read another card.

Please leave feedback if this was helpful, thanks.

    doesn't the camera have memory in it already?

  • Jason Burkhardt Mar 25, 2011

    That model does not have internal memory that I could find. It comes with a 32 MB Compact Flash (CF) card, but that would have to have been installed by you or another user.

    where can i pick up a card for this camera in montreal, quebec?

    I'm not from Canada, so I'm not familiar with your retailers, but almost any place that sells cameras should have it (Best Buy, Walmart, Kmart, etc.). You can also get them pretty cheaply online if you don't mind waiting for them to ship it.

How to format SDHC card on Canon PowerShot


The PowerShot S1 doesn't take SDHC cards, only CF cards. If you're asking about some other camera, not all of the cameras deigned for SD cards take the higher-capacity SDHC cards.

I have a Conon Powershot S1 IS camera and bought a Transcend Compact Flash 4GB memory card and when I insert in into the camera a red light flashes at the menu and set buttons?


Have your new memory card inserted into your PC to test for any virus. Format the memory car.
Please check if your cannon is adaptive to the 4GB (check the instruction manual) if the card shows the same fault now after inserting.
Use another card into the camera to confirm if the card slot is faulty.
