    on my Cannon Powershot A510 the error message states 'Card Locked'. I have used this same card for a few years now with no problems until now. I was going to try and reformat but the 'format' menu option is grayed out and I cannot access. Ideas?

SD 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.

SOURCE: Hello

Locked? There is a small tab on the card that slides into the "lock" or "unlock" position.

If you mean "stuck" then you should realize the to remove the card you push it in until it clicks and pops out.

SOURCE: Can't format memory card in A510 Canon digital camera.

Have you used this card in the past? Is this a new card?

Is this card rated to be used with this camera. Some cameras can only support cards of certain sizes.

If the card is compatible, take the card to target or best buy and format it on a camera there and see if it works then put it back in your camera and see if it works after.

Memory card error in a510

Try reformatting the card. If it won't reformat in the camera, use a PC and set it for FAT or FAT32

What is the maximum size of an SD card that can be used in a Canon PowerShot A510?

You can use any size SD card. Just keep in mind that SD cards max out at 2GB; any larger cards are actually SDHC cards and will not work in the A510.

My camera says (card locked) what do I need to do?

SD 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.

I have inserted a new PNY optima SC HC memory card and window in camera says "memory card error". Does the canon not take this card?

Correct. The A510 uses SD cards, not SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work.

Yes, Don't panic please.
Simply, just take memory card outside and attach it to your laptop or PC. FORMAT that memory card using FAT32 and you will get it working again.

Card locked

Remove the card from the camera. Slide the tiny switch on the side of the card to the other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card and try it out.
