Question about Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera
I BOUGHT A 4GB MEMORY CARD FOR MY A540, WHEN I TURN ON THE CAMERA, IT SAYS "MEMORY CARD ERROR", WHATS WRONG... I JUST CANT FIGURE IT OUT, WORKS FINE WITH THE 1GB CARD...
From what I can see here, the card's size is too large that your camera couldn't support or handle. Maybe your camera is just limited to 1GB or 2GB. Try plugging 2GB card and see if it detects it. I had similar prob where I bought a 4GB card and it does exactly the same thing. I consulted the vendor, he said it only supports up to 2GB thus, it's a product limitation...well I'm stuck there hehe, can't be helped at all..
If you are certain that your camera can handle 4GB card or higher, try to plug the 4GB card into a card reader and see if it detets it. If it does, try to reformat the card and try it again to your camera.
Also, 1 possible thing is that your 4GB card is password protected. Was it plugged in to any other device? If it was, try to plug it back to the same device where it was connected and disable the password.
Onother thing is the brand. Some camera is brand sensitive when it comes to cards. You may need to try different brand as well.
Hope this helps. :-)
