Perform the following procedures when your digital camera does not detect the SD card. 1. Restart the camera Turn the main power OFF, or open the battery cover or SD card/battery cover to remove the battery. Make sure the SD card is fully installed. Then, turn the main power ON, or insert a battery again and close the battery cover or SD card/battery cover until it latches. 2. Initialize the SD card Format the SD card with your camera. Formatting procedures varies depending on the camera model. See the Camera User Guide supplied with your camera for the instruction to format the SD card. When formatting the SD card, slide its tab upward to cancel write protection. It is impossible to format the SD card while it is write protected. 3. Check if your camera detects other SD cards (If you own multiple SD cards.) If your camera does not detect the SD card after performing the procedures 1 and 2, check if the camera detects other SD cards. If it does detect other SD cards, the SD card that wasn't detected may contain some problem.

Says sd card error

Are you sure it's an SD card? Even though SDHC cards will also fit into the slot, they will not work in the A540. If the card is larger than 2GB then it will not work.

Canon powershot sd 1000, memory card not detected


Please try to copy all the contents of your SD card to your computer. Then format the SD card and try it again on your camera.

If it still can't be detected, try another SD card.

This camera reads "card error" and won't format a

yes. you can try to insert the sd card to a computer using any all-in-1 memory card reader. then if windows detects it, right click the card's drive in windows explorer then select format. choose FAT as file system type. before you put it back to your camera clean the card's contact points, insert the card and if the camera detects the card format it again using the camera's format tool.

Older VHS-C Palmcorder Memory cards size recognition

Dear Sir,
Yes all noted on your SD/CF card question, well this was a very good question for me simply because I too have had this same problem with my own Sony Digital 340 movie camera.
My camera come with a 128 mb SD card, and like a fool I went last week and bought a 2 g card, and my camera just cannot see it let alone use it, and I now find that camera's before 2004 cannot see any g cards, and like me you are stuck with small max of 128 m because the camera hard-ware is old tec stuff, sad I think my friend, but that's it.
Take care,

SD card locked

The lock switch on the SD card looks like a bit of plastic without any electronics. A bit like the write-protect tab on a 3.5" FDD.
So there must be a sensor in the reader / camera which detects the position of the switch. Maybe there is dirt in the sensor. The best way to check would be to try another SD card, but you could try blowing out any possible dirt and see if that fixes the problem. Can the camera write to the SD card?

Try moving the switch to lock and unlock status.

I have inserted an SD Card (2GB) into my Alba pocket camcorder and nothing appears to be working on the camcorder. There is a small red light showing underneath the Rec and Zoom in/Out controls but apart...


Have you inserted a new SD card? If this is already a used one, you can try to reformat it and then test with the Pocket camera again.

With the issue on the device recognition on your Windows PC, you should make sure that the correct driver is installed.

Will wait for your reply.

My camera stopped uploading photos

If the camera still works OK otherwise -- you caN BYPASS THE PROBLEM with coimputer recognition simply by removing the SD card, and reading it directly. Most notebooks have a slot for plugging in an SD card. Otherwise -- there are some very cheap SD card readers (<$5.00) -- insert your card, plug into USB Port, then (on Windows) select "Open Windows Explorer" select and copy your digital images to your PC.
