Take the memory card out of your camera.
Hold it in your right hand.
On the left side you will see a very small slider switch. It will probably be in the down position.
Slide it to the up position and see what happens.
This switch toggles the card between Read/Write and Read Only. If it is on read only it locks the card.

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Cannon powershot SD1100 IS card locked!. How to unlock


Take the memory card out of your camera and look at it. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

Trying to upload pictures to my computer from my canon powershot sd1100 IS digital elph camera but it says "communication error" how do i fix this so i can upload them?


This type of problem arises many times,at first they work but the more you use them the terminals tend to loosen up,even if the camera is new.So most of the time my best solution for that is to purchase a multiple memory card reader(usb 2.0).Most don't require any installer,just plug the reader to your computer and slide in any memory card you have and you will be able to upload any media you want.What I have is Ohm USB multi card reader/writer,it has been doing it's job since I got it.

Computer Not Recognizing Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Elph A


Depending on your OS, you can download the latest driver for your system directly from Canon here. Remember to select your OS in the dropdown tab to be able to see the available downloads.

But I'd also recommend that you take this as an opportunity to consider utilizing a much safer method of downloading your pictures and videos. Please see this link, as it describes the use of a USB card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. Note that card readers are also VERY inexpensive these days (some places less than $2 online with shipping).
