No. The A520 works with SD cards, which max out at 2GB. It does not work with SDHC cards, which start at 4GB and go up to 32GB.

    The A520 does work with 4GB SD card. Make sure it's an SD card, not SDHC. Most of the 4GB cards for sell on Ebay/Amazone are SDHC cards. So, you might want to search around. When insert a 4GB SD card in the A520, the A520 does show the memory card of size 3.8 GB. This is expected.

SOURCE: sd card

Sorry, but your camera was designed before the 4GB SDHC card came out. Although they look exactly the same as a standard SD card, they are not. Your camera can only use standard SD cards (2GB or less).

SOURCE: sd card

There are regular SD cards and high-capacity SD cards (HCSD). Some devices are not compatible with HCSD cards. It sounds like your camera is not compatible. You may still be able to purchase 2G & 4G regular format SD cards that will work fine.

I hope that helps.

I am getting memory card error with canon powershot a410


The A410 works with SD cards. Your 8GB card is an SDHC card and won't work in devices not designed to use them. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I cannot format my brand new SD card with my Canon Powershot 970 IS. It is a 4G, however i just tried an old 1G and it will not format that one either .... perplexed.


Try another type of SD card as the Canon camera are very choosy with regards to SD card. All I want to say that, not all SD card will work on Canon camera. Or if you insist of using your SD card you have to format it in your computer using Canon formatting software which is downloadable in the website.

You can use any size SD card. Just keep in mind that SD cards max out at 2GB; any larger cards are actually SDHC cards and will not work in the A510.
