Purchased new memory card for my canon powershot A520 and I keep getting a "memory card error". I've purchased two different cards and get the same error message. Original card that came with...


From page 145 of the A520 user manual, it appears that the largest SD memory card that this camera is able to use is a 512MB SD memory card. The manual is dated "2004", so this size limitation is not unusual for a camera of this era.
If you've purchased anything larger, there is a good chance that it won't work with this model camera.

I have a canon powershot a520 and it refreshes vary slow so it takes forever to take another photo. How do I fix this?


Hi,

I've got a A520 also, and I think theres a few reasons why it can take a while between shots.

1) When using the flash, flash needs several seconds to recharge, this is unavoidable.
2) Some SD cards are slower than others. Make sure you buy a fast one. Note too that a 2Gb or 4Gb card will slow down your camera between shots, compared to a smaller memory card, such as 1Gb, or 512mb.
3) If using a slow shutter speed, such as 10 or 15 seconds, I've found it takes longer to take the next photo. This is unavoidable.

4) You could lower the resolution of the photos you're taking, this will enable you to take photos faster, and may still be good enough for applications such as Facebook, ect.

5) Another trick is to use the multiple shots option. For some reason you can take more photos more quickly than if you manually take each photo. Flash, and slow shutter speeds may still slow down the camera, if used.

Hope these hints help!

I have a Canon Power Shot A520 and have just put in a new memory card 4GB and new batteries. When I turn on camera is says memory card error at the top of the sceen. Why is that?


The A520 is designed to work with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible.

You need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller.

I just brought a new memory card 8gbsan disk ultra and it is saying memory card error


The A520 is designed to work with SD cards. Your 8GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the camera it will not work. You need to stay with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Memory card


Unfortunately, the A520 does not support SD memory cards with more than 2GB capacity, and doesn't support SDHC at all. (1GB max for MMC cards.) I know memory is much cheaper than when the camera first came out, but in 2005 2GB was about as large as you could get.
