Question about Canon PowerShot S410 / IXUS 430 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Memory Card Problem

I have Canon Camera S410 model. I bought a new CF card of 512 MB which i have been using for close to 1 year. Today, when i took the card out and replaced it back, and switched on the camera in playback mode, the LCD screen is showing No Image Memory Card Error As a result, i am not able to shoot any pictures. Some 2 months back, the moisture had entered the camera and the camera would not operate. After a few days, it started operating, though occasionally. Recently, it was always operating and i faced no problem. I don't think this "memory card error" problem has any link to the moisture problem. If there is a link, i am not aware of it. Please note that the CF card slot cover is properly locked and still the problem persists. Please guide me how to rectify the error.

Try to use the CF in another camera to find out whether your problem is the CF or the camera. Good luck!

PowerShot S410 problem. Camera powers on and lens extends and closes as normal. Screen shows Memory Card Unavailable if I don't have the memory card in the camera, if memory card is inserted in the camera...


Take a look inside your camera's CF card slot. I suspect that you may have a bent pin in there. If so, don't fret. Although professional repair would be more costly than the value of the camera, there is a very good chance that you can repair this yourself. Please see this link.

I took a picture wihtout a CF card in the camera


When you take pictures without the internal card , they get stored inside the camera internal memory (usually 8 or 16 MB only).

Connect the camera to a computer using a data cable, without putting any memory card inside the camera. The camera internal memory will be displayed as a new external usb disk on computer.

Err CF then Err 99 - Canon Rebel XT / Hitachi 4GB Mircodrive


Nope, this is not card anymore.

As you know CF is card failure, sometimes this cause to start error 99 , that is lens error , even if there is no problem with the lens.

This happens because the built in software in the camera can get messed up after an error CF.

You fix the problem calling Canon, they will guide through upgrading the firmware in your camera.

First ensure that you are using the camera menu and command to format the new card, and that new cards are properly inserted into the machine.

Call Canon support to get a firmware upgrade.

PowerShot G1 + cf card


The Canon G1 was my first digital camera, years ago. When this camera was sold it came with a 16 Mb CF card. The manual refers to CF card sizes from 8 Mb up to 128 Mb and the number of photos you can take with each size card. However, I bought my camera together with a 1GB "micro drive" (tiny hard drive in a CF card format) and although it wasn't "supported" by Canon, it worked fine. I also used a regular 1GB CF card in it (after I lost the microdrive card). If you want to use a card larger than 1GB with this camera, test/borrow a card to make sure it works before you buy one. Camera stores always have a variety of cards (used to demonstrate the cameras they are selling) that you can put in your camera and test before you decide which card to buy.

Capacity of cf card to be used with a60


According to Canon's website, the limit is 256MB. You could try it with a larger card, though. Nothing bad will happen to the camera, and it should either work fine or not at all. Here is the page from Canon's site: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelTechSpecsSupportAct&fcategoryid=221&modelid=8774

CF card problem


Try a CF card reader. If that shows no files then try some file recovery software with the card reader acting like a drive. There are some nice freeware programs that might help. It may be that the files are corrupted then the solution is more difficult. Good Luck!
