The Canon A620 works with MMC and SD cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. This is a hardware incompatibility that cannot be overcome by firmware updates or other means. You have to use MMC or SD cards, up to 2GB in size.

Can I use 8GB SD cards in my Canon Powershot A620 camera? I thought I once read that it will only support up to 2GB SD cards.


The A620 uses MMC and SD cards. SD cards max out at 2GB in size. Larger cards are actually SDHC or SDXC cards and will not work in the A620.

Bought new sdhc memory card and it reads memory card error please help


The A620 is designed to work with SD cards, not SDHC cards. SDHC cards will fit into the slot but are electronically different. You'll have to stay with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Camera will not accept any memory card over 2GB. Keeps saying "Memory Card Error"


Most new 4GB and larger cards are SDHC cards (look on the card). Although they look exactly the same as a standard SD card, they are not. Unfortunately, there is no way that these cards will work with your camera, as it was designed before the SDHC format came out. As you've dsicovered, 2GB and less are standard SD cards, and will work with your camera.

There were a few standard 4GB cards produced a few years ago, most notably by ADATA (I have one that I use in my A620). Unfortunately, these are rare now, and are somewhat expensive if found on eBay.

Im using 8gb SDHC card (scandisc) camera keeps reporting read error or write error. won't download photos, locks up etc, etc. lost many holiday photos. It is only 6 weeks old.... should Ijust use 2 mb SD -...


If all other cards work fine then you may have a faulty memory card.

Your camera should theoretically be able to handle an 8GB SDHC card (but only up to 2GB xD card) as it is an SDHC compatible camera, but I've encountered more than a few cameras in the past which were SDHC compliant but could only handle up to 4GB.

Most of these had firmware updates to enable up to 16GB SDHC but the Fuji S1000fd has no firmware update.

If you find that the SDHC card is fine after all then I'd suggest contacting Fuji for a definite say so as to whether they know of any issues with 8GB SDHC compatibility.

Put new SanDisk 4GB card in Canon A620 and get Memory Card Error


The A620 came out in 2005, before the SDHC (high capacity) protocol had been introduced. The A580 came out in 2008 and is compatible with the SDHC protocol. The A620 is only compatible with the SD protocol, and maximum capacity under this protocol is 2MB.

I put a brand new SanDisk SDHC 4 GB memory card in and it says "memory card error; card is locked".


I also own an A620, but unfortunately I also learned the hard way that SDHC cards are not compatible with this camera. The A620 was designed before the newer SDHC format came out, thus although they look exactly the same, your camera will never work with these cards. Your camera uses standard SD cards (2GB or less). There are some standard 4GB SD cards, but they are very rare these days, and costly.
