Question about Digital Cameras

I have a Canon Power Shot A620. I just put in a new PNY 4 GB memory card (have used others before). The new card says "memory card error" and "card locked". I have put it in several times and turned the camera off and on but it will not format it. What can I do?

In this case on the memory card itself u will see a small slide switch just slide that switch to the opposite direction and that will fix the problem

You could try formatting it by using the camera's menus, or in My Computer on PC by right clicking on its icon to bring down the option, then format again in the camera to ensure compatibility

Will a canon power shot a620 use a sdhc card


Hello

OK, unfortunately this camera unit does not support SDCH cards. The largest capacity card it will support as a regular SD 2GB card.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards

Some cameras cannot handle over 2GB memory cards. If it works fine with 2GB card - stick to that. If some other A620 you know operates with 4GB card, take yours to repairs.

Canon powershot A620 - putting a a memory card and it says memory card locked - it's a new card and it's not locked - what should I do?


I'm guessing you bought a new 4GB SDHC card. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different. Unfortunately your camera was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, but a SDHC card will not work with your camera.
You'll need to use standard SD cards (usually those 2GB or less). But if you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for 4GB SD "non HC", with the non HC in quotes. Believe Transcend makes one.

I put a brand new SanDisk SDHC 4 GB memory card in and it says "memory card error; card is locked".


I also own an A620, but unfortunately I also learned the hard way that SDHC cards are not compatible with this camera. The A620 was designed before the newer SDHC format came out, thus although they look exactly the same, your camera will never work with these cards. Your camera uses standard SD cards (2GB or less). There are some standard 4GB SD cards, but they are very rare these days, and costly.

I just bought my Canon Power Shot A560 today, but almost immedantly i put the memory card in a message came on the camera screen to say the memory card was full. Why is this happening?


sounds strange-you sure there is nothing on card?-format the memory card from menu and that will clear card-is this card that came with camera or card you bought with it-i'd use a 2 gb sandisk or pny and you should have no problems
